Qamishli, Syria− Activists based in Shaddadi town in Hasakah province reported to ARA News that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) distributed on Thursday humanitarian aid and food supplies to a number of families in Shaddadi.

The al-Qaeda-linked ISIL has also opened a new headquarter under the name “Islamic Court of Shaddadi”, and it set up a tent for Islamic advocacy. 

Likewise, al-Nusra Front −another Qaeda affiliate in Syria− has appointed representatives who provide people with gas supplies for Shaddadi’s residents.

“Nusra Front’s representatives put a fixed price of 1100 SP ($7) for each gas cylinder,” Mohammed al-Ahmed, an activist based in Shaddadi, told ARA News.

Al-Ahmed added that with the continuous vaccination campaign against poliomyelitis for the third day respectively, the National Hospital in the town suffers from an acute shortage in medicine and medical staff amid power outages.

Shaddadi, located at a distance of 46km south of Hasaka city, is controlled by the opposition fighters since February 2013.
