The situation is not getting any better for the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) inside Al-Hasakah  City, as they are now isolated at two different sectors of the provincial capital, all the while, the Syrian Armed Forces and the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) continue to capture territory from the terrorist group.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 123rd Brigade of the 3rd Armored Division – in coordination with the Gozarto Protection Forces (Assyrian militia), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Al-Ba’ath Battalion – continued their assault on the Panorama Roundabout, where they confronted a large contingent from ISIS trying to entrench themselves inside the buildings near the Youth Housing Camp.

To make matters worse for ISIS at the Al-Zuhour Quarter, their fighters inside the Faculty of Engineering building are cutoff from their other combatants at the Panorama Roundabout, leaving them with only two choices: surrender or die.

West of Al-Zuhour, the YPG carried out a powerful assault at the west district of the Al-Nishwa Quarter on Wednesday, killing over 20 enemy combatants from the terrorist group, while also capturing a T-72 tank.

To the south of the west district, the Syrian Arab Army engineers dismantled a large payload of IEDs (improvised explosive device) near the Al-Shari’ah district after they were unearthed by a contingent from the 154th Brigade.
