The Syrian army killed tens of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants in fierce clashes in the Northern parts of the country.
At least 70 ISIL terrorists were killed in two days of heavy clashes between the Syrian army and the ISIL terrorists in the Qamishli region which is 48 kilometers from the Turkish borders.
The majority of the terrorists killed in Qamishli were non-Syrian nationals who were trying to enter Syria from Turkey.
Syrian government troops and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have recently been engaged in clashes with the ISIL in the predominantly Kurdish city of al-Qamishli as part of a broader conflict that has gripped Syria for about four years.
On Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that Kurdish Pishmarga forces killed around 30 members of the ISIL terrorist group in Qamishli.
The YPG succeeded in recapturing the village of Abu Qasayeb in the Tal Hamis area in Southeast of Qamishli.
The observatory said three YPG fighters also were killed in the operation to recapture the village, which was seized by the ISIL on Tuesday.
