The top commander of popular forces in Hasaka announced that his forces and the Syrian army troops are now in control of the Northeastern city.
“All parts of Hasaka city are under the control of our forces, the Syrian army troops and the Kurdish popular committees and at present, no operations are being carried out by the ISIL terrorists in Hasaka,” Sheikh Fayez Abdul Rahman Sheikh Namess told FNA on Wednesday.
Noting that the cooperation and coordination among the three forces have driven out the terrorists 20km away from Hasaka, he said that they have freed many districts and villages near Hasaka, including Abdulaziz mountain, and killed tens of ISIL terrorists in the past months.
In a latest development in Hasaka, the Syrian army and popular forces seized back a strategic region from the ISIL terrorists on Sunday.
The army and Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces managed to mop up Al-Layla district in the Northeastern part of Hasaka from the terrorist groups.
Following the tough resistance shown by the army and popular forces in the past few days, Al-Layla district was taken back and the ISIL terrorists retreated.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes 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.
