ISIL Suffers Huge Setback in Al-Hasakah; YPG Captures Tal Hamees and Tal Brak

ISIL has arguably suffered their largest setback in Syria, as the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) captured the strategic town of Tal Hamees in eastern Al-Hasakah after the former controlled this area for almost two years.

The YPG successfully infiltrated into Tal Hamees after taking control of several villages south of the town; this area was heavily fortified by ISIL and was considered untouchable four months ago.

In addition to their capture of Tal Hamees, the YPG also took control of the imperative town of Tal Brak. Tal Brak was another ISIL stronghold that was relatively untouchable months ago.
