Hasakah, Syria – The U.S.-led international coalition’s warplanes launched Saturday several air raids on locations controlled by the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) in the countryside of Hasakah province, northeastern Syria.

This coincided with clashes between the group’s militants and the pro-regime forces in the western countryside of Hasakah city, local sources reported.

Speaking to ARA news in Hasakah, civil rights activist Ahmed al-Husseini stated that the U.S.-led international coalition warplanes targeted IS-sites in al-Hol area in the eastern countryside of Hasakah near the Syrian-Iraqi border.

Conflicting information spread about the U.S. strikes”mistakenly” hitting a refugee camp in the region but on injuries were reported, according to al-Husseini.

“Meanwhile, fierce clashes broke out between the pro- regime forces (backed by gunmen of National Defence Army) and militants of the Islamic State group on the road leading to Abyad area and Mount Abdulaziz in the western countryside of Hasakah city,” al-Husseini added.

Media Office of the pro-regime forces in Hasakah told ARA News that the National Defence, led by commander Mohammed Younis, carried out what they described as “clean up operations” against IS militants in the vicinity of Mount Abdulaziz.
