Qamishli, Syria – Wednesday, the U.S.-led international coalition’s warplanes bombed several areas in the countryside of Hasakah province, in northeastern Syria. 

Speaking to ARA News in Hasakah, civil rights activist Adel Ibrahim said that the international coalition’s fighter jets bombed the oil-rich station of Kabiba near the city of Shaddadi (50 km south of Hasakah), which was controlled by militants of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS). 

“Huge explosions were heard Wednesday morning in the al-Hol area, in eastern Hasakah, without receiving further information about the source or the results of the explosions,” Ibrahim added.

The coalition’s warplanes launched other raids over the IS-held city of Shaddadi on Wednesday. 

In another context, activists from the city of Qamishli (Qamishlo), in the northeastern part of the country, told ARA News that fierce clashes broke out between members of the Syrian regime military forces and militants of the Islamic State group in the northern the town of Tal Hamis (35 km south of Qamishlo).

This coincided with mutual artillery shelling between the two sides, causing mass displacement among residents of the village of Tel Okaz near the town of Tel Hamis. 

This comes amid continued fighting and clashes between militants of the Islamic State and the forces of the Syrian regime backed by the affiliated militias in the western and southern suburbs of Hasakah, for the second successive week.
