As the militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) were storming the Al-Nishwa Quarter and the Panorama Roundabout, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division was quietly advancing at the Al-Liliyah Quarter inside the provincial capital of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
With 90 percent of the Al-Liliyah District under their control, the SAA’s 154th Brigade – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, and the Shaytat Tribesmen – carried out one last powerful assault on the terrorist group’s positions; this attack proved to be decisive for the Syrian Armed Forces, as they were able to take full control of the Al-Liliyah Quarter on Wednesday morning.
Following their victory at the Al-Liliyah Quarter, the Syrian Armed Forces sent reinforcements to the Al-Nishwa Quarter in order to help push back the encroaching ISIS militants – once again, the Syrian Armed Forces were successful, as they drove back the terrorist group to the western district of this strategic area in the provincial capital.
In addition to their success at the Al-Liliyah and Al-Nishwa Quarters, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to secure the Panorama Roundabout in southern Al-Hasakah City after almost two hours of non-strop firefights with the militants from ISIS.
The Syrian Armed Forces Central Command visited the Al-Liliyah District after it was cleared out by their soldiers this morning.
