Al-Hasakah, Syria – 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 managed to seize three villages from the Syrian Democratic Forces this morning after overrunning their defenses at the southern countryside of Al-Shadadi.
Following the capture of these three villages, the Islamic State terrorists advanced north towards the village of Al-Sheikh ‘Uthman, where they were confronted by a small SDF unit.
The Islamic State terrorists managed to seize Al-Sheikh ‘Uthman after a fracture in the SDF’s first-line of defense.
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.
