Saturday, Syrian Kurds celebrated Nowruz, the Persian New Year, in the Kurdish-majority city of Qamishli in Syria's northeastern Hasakeh province.

The Persian New Year is an ancient Zoroastrian tradition celebrated by Iranians and Kurds which coincides with the vernal (spring) equinox and is calculated by the solar calendar.
