Syrian Forces Regain Control of Hasakah

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian government forces and Kurdish fighters liberated the city of Hasakah from the control of the ISIL terrorists, reports said.

The ISIL Takfiri group “was expelled by the army from Zuhur, the last district in which it was present in Hasakah”, Rami Abdel Rahman, the director of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

He said the militants belonging to the terrorist group “have been pushed to the Southern outskirts of the city”.

The victory was achieved after more than a month of fighting in the city between Syrian government forces and Kurdish fighters on the one side and the Takfiri terrorists on the other.

A Syrian military source also said that Syrian army troops killed more than 500 gunmen in the process of clearing the city from Takfiri militants.

The source highlighted the contribution of Kurdish forces to the victory, saying they backed the Syrian army in cutting the militants’ supply routes.

According to the source, the Syrian army forces are currently demining the city.

A local Kurdish commander said at least 15 villages around Hasakah are now uninhabitable due to the mines laid by terrorists.

Last month, ISIL terrorists began their assault on Hasakah before capturing a number of its neighborhoods and forcing the evacuation of many of its residents.

Syria has been battling foreign-sponsored militancy since March 2011. Estimates by the United Nations show that the violence fueled by Takfiri terrorist groups has so far left over 230,000 people dead and another seven million displaced.

TEHRAN (FNA)- At least 6,000 Sunni tribal fighters joined the Iraqi volunteer forces fighting the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.

Habib al-Tarfi, a lawmaker in the Citizen coalition, which represents the interests of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, said on Tuesday that the fighters have joined the ranks of Iraqi volunteer forces “to battle the terrorists who seek to destroy Iraq and rip the country to shreds”.

He further said that Iraqi security personnel backed by fighters from allied Popular Mobilization forces have so far managed to liberate many areas in Diyala, Salahuddin and Anbar provinces as well as the town of Jurf al-Nasr, located about 60 kilometers (37 miles) Southwest of the capital, Baghdad, from the control of the ISIL terrorists.

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control a shrinking part of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.

  1. It’s good to see the Syrian Army together with Kurdish formations succeed in their ongoing fight against ISIL and Al Nusra terrorists.

    It would be also great if there would be more information about the real commanding structures, especially their ethnic background. What I’ve read so far is that many commanders now come from Chechnya and some other Asian regions. If that’s really the case, this would be a profound hint at what might be the next target of these forces in the future. I also read that in Bosnia there exists a training camp for ISIL terrorits.
