On Wednesday night, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) conducted a wave of suicide operations in the provincial capital of the Al-Hasakah Governorate, utilizing VBEIDs (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) to infiltrate into the strategic Panorama Roundabout’s southern barriers.

Most of the VBIED attacks that were conducted by the militants of ISIS were unsuccessful; however, before dusk settled over Al-Hasakah City, the terrorist group was finally able to evade the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses and detonate their VBIED, which allowed for the armed combatants of ISIS to capture the Panorama Roundabout after fierce clashes with the Syrian Armed Forces.

Following ISIS’ capture of the Panorama Roundabout, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a multitude of airstrikes over southern Al-Hasakah, destroying a half dozen armored vehicles that were mounted with 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns before the Syrian Armed Forces began their counter-assault on Thursday morning.

Despite ISIS’ success at the Panorama Roundabout, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th  Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, and the Shaytat Tribesmen – captured the Al-Liliyah Quarter after devastating the ISIS militants at the southern district on Wednesday.

Firefights have restarted inside the Al-Nishwa Quarter’s east district this morning, as the terrorist group carried out another assault on the Syrian Armed Forces’ positions – clashes are still ongoing, but there have been no map changes.

According to a military source in the Al-Hasakah District, the Syrian Armed Forces have secured the Al-Ahdath Juvenile Detention Facility, Al-Hasakah Power Plant, the east district of the Al-Ghuweiran Quarter, and the Sports City – the source added that there is no truth to the ISIS social media activist claims of any infiltration in the aforementioned sites.
