In two districts of Syria’s Hasaka city, Kurdish fighters and regime forces rest before returning to battle the Islamic State group, a shared enemy being fought jointly for the first time.

Although the two forces are fighting in different parts of the northeastern city, where control is divided between the Kurds and the government, both are necessary to defeat the jihadists.

“We can’t fight all alone in Hasaka because IS attacked in great numbers,” a government soldier said, sheltering from the scorching heat in a house surrounded by sandbags in the Ghweyran district.

The capital of Hasaka province has been spared much of the violence of Syria’s conflict, and control of the city has been shared between Kurdish and regime forces for several years now.
