The ISIS terrorist group has attempted to carry out a deep shock attack using Inghimasis troops against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near the small city of Shadaadi in the province of Hasakah. The operation by ISIS was carried out around ten kilometers behind SDF lines.
According to ISIS-linked information sources, the terrorist group mustered sixteen (16) infiltration troops and sent them on what more-or-less appears to have been a one-way mission with suicide vests to attack strategic targets belonging to the SDF. Two SDF military installations (which apparently housed US troops) close to Shadaadi, Kurdish positions at the village of Hariri and an SDF encampment called “Rjm Salibi” were targeted by the ISIS shock troops. Furthermore, the target areas were also hit with heavy artillery and Grad rockets to “increase the confusion” within the ranks of “PKK militants” as the suicide bombers conducted their attacks.
According to pro-ISIS media, the attacks resulted in the death of dozens of SDF soldiers.
Pro-Kurdish sources claim that no military personnel of their own were harmed and instead ISIS succeeded only in killing dozens of civilians. Neither side’s account can be confirmed at the present time.
Below is a video released by SDF media that shows an ISIS soldier being forced into ditch under the pressure of SDF fire and then blowing himself up. Though this attack obviously failed, the fate of the other fifteen ISIS troops and the success of their mission remains unknown.
