Kurdish fighters have reportedly recaptured a village in the northeastern Syrian province of Hasakah after clashes with ISIL militants.
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday that Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) took control of the village of Qassiab in Hasakah. Three Kurdish fighters and dozens of ISIL militants were killed in the battles. The ISIL had captured the village two days ago.
Syrian army troops along with Kurdish fighters have been engaged in heavy clashes with ISIL Takfiri militants, especially in the Kurdish city of Qamishli.
Meanwhile, the opposition source also stated that at least a dozen people have been killed and scores more wounded in Syrian government airstrikes in Aleppo Province. The strikes targeted the districts of al-Bab and Kabseen, controlled by ISIL.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 200,000 people, according to reports.
The ISIL militants have seized swathes of land in Syria and Iraq, terrorizing and killing people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians, in the areas they are controlling.
