Al-Hasakah, Syria (1:00 P.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 launching surprise attacks at Kashkash Jabbour, Tal Safeet, and Al-‘Azawi; this resulted in a series of clashes that ended with the terrorist forces establishing full control over these three villages.

Following the capture of the aforementioned villages, the Islamic State forces pushed further north towards the town of Al-Hamadat, which is located near Al-Shadadi’s southern flank.

Once again, the Islamic State terrorists were able to overrun the SDF’s fortifications, despite receiving an added boost to their defenses by the U.S Coalition’s warplanes.

ISIS is still pushing north towards the city of Al-Shadadi; however, SDF reinforcements are expected to arrive shortly in order to help push back the terrorists.

This is the main reason why the SAA and YPG should not be fighting each other .ISIS will take advantage.

Thats – again – why its a very bad idea Assads and Kurds fight against each other and taking Raqqa and surrounding alon Eufrat should be much more important then insist in going to Afrin taking Al Bab and whatever.

You have to defeat and cut where its important for kurds being safe and make safety and friends.
