The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) withdrew many of their fighters from the eastern Homs front and transferred them to western Al-Hasakah, where they began their assault on the predominately Assyrian village of Tal Tamer.

Immediately following the attack on Tal Tamer, the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) rushed to aid those defending the village.

Most of the civilians in Tal Tamer were able to flee to the provincial capital Al-Hasakah; however, a number of social media activists reported that up to 200 civilians were kidnapped by ISIS militants.

Earlier today, a car bomb was reportedly detonated inside Tal Tamer – there were no casualties reported from the explosion.

Southeast of Al-Qamishli, the YPG secured 5 villages near the ISIS stronghold of Tal Hamees after fierce clashes with the latter. The 5 villages were identified as Khaweetla Al-Jawaalah, Tal Taheen, Halawiyah Al-Kabeer, Halawiyah Al-Sagheera, and Al-Masheerfa.

Meanwhile, in southern Al-Hasakah, the YPG captured another 4 villages from ISIS, taking control of Homs, Ghassan, Al-Zahran, and Al-Zahraa’.

A civilian was reportedly killed by ISIS militants for aiding YPG fighters in the village of Al-Aghabash. The civilian was identified as Jassim Mohammad Al-Matalaq of Al-Aghabash.
