Al-Hasakah, Syria (6:50 A.M.) -The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a large-scale offensive in the southern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate on Tuesday, targeting the strategic city of Al-Shadadi, which is currently under the control of the U.S. backed “Syrian Democratic Forces.”

ISIS began the offensive by storming the Syrian Democratic Forces’ defenses south of Al-Shadadi city; this resulted in the capture of a number of sites, including four villages.

Following the capture of these four villages, the Islamic State made a major push for Al-Shadadi’s southern perimeter, capturing the town of Al-Sheikh Hilal along the way.

ISIS is now positioned just south of Al-Shahdadi, leaving only a few kilometers of rural area between them and this strategic city near the Deir Ezzor Governorate border.

Despite the nonstop airstrikes from the U.S. Coalition, the Islamic State terrorists are still pushing north towards Al-Shadadi, as they continue their large-scale offensive.
