The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has been officially kicked out of the eastern sector of Al-Hasakah City after the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the Shaytat Tribesmen and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – captured the east district of the Al-Ghuweiran Quarter and the remaining territory under the terrorist group’s control in the Red Villas of Abu Bakr village.

For the first time in a month, the terrorist group does not occupy any territory inside the provincial capital’s eastern sector after their fierce firefights with both the Syrian Armed Forces and the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) in the Red Villas and the Al-Ghuweiran Quarter of Al-Hasakah City.

According to a military source inside the provincial capital, the terrorist group suffered an estimated 160 casualties during the intense firefights at the Martyrs Cemetery in the Al-Ghuweiran Quarter; this was a devastating defeat for ISIS, due to the strategic location of the aforementioned site and its condensed buildings that provided the terrorist group shelter from the persistent airstrikes conducted by the Syrian Arab Air Force.

In addition to their defeat at the Al-Ghuweiran Quarter, ISIS is on the verge of conceding control of the imperative Panorama Roundabout that is located at the southern entrance of Al-Hasakah; if lost, they will be wedged at the Al-Ahdath Juvenile Detention Facility that sits between the Syrian Armed Forces to the north and the YPG to south (Electrical Substation).

Meanwhile, west of Al-Ghuweiran, the YPG continued to progress in the northwestern countryside of the Al-Nishwa Quarter after fierce clashes with the terrorist group on Thursday night – the YPG now controls a quarter of the northwestern sector of Al-Nishwa.

Inside the southwestern sector of the Al-Nishwa Quarter, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – alongside of the Gozarto Protection Forces (Assyrian militias) and the National Defense Forces – clashed with ISIS at the Al-Shari’ah District, killing 19 confirmed enemy combatants before nightfall on Wednesday.

ISIS is in big trouble in Al-Hasakah City, as they are completely cutoff from all supply lines to their embattled fighters; and if they lose the Al-Zuhour Quarter, they will completely encircled at Al-Nishwa.
