The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) have launched another assault on the provincial capital of the Al-Hasakah Governorate this morning; however, this time, the terrorist group was able to infiltrate past the National Defense Forces (NDF) frontline fortifications near the Al-Hasakah National Hospital and the Baccalaureate School in the western sector of city.

According to a military source in the Al-Hasakah Governorate, the armed combatants from ISIS coordinated with a number of sleeper cells inside the provincial capital; these sleeper cells succored the terrorist group in finding an infiltration point before they took full-control of two building blocks at the western sector of the city.

The source further added that the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the National Defense Forces and the Kata’eb Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalion) have requested more reinforcements from the Al-Qamishli District in order to help drive back the enemy combatants that infiltrated into the provincial capital this morning.

As of now, the militants from ISIS are entrenched inside the provincial capital of Al-Hasakah; however, intense clashes are ongoing at the western sector of the city, as the Syrian Armed Forces look to recover their lost territory from the terrorist group.
