Qamishli, Syria – On Sunday fighter jets of the international coalition bombed sites and headquarters of the radical group of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) in the province of Hasakah, northeastern Syria, after several rounds of exploratory sorties carried out by coalition aircrafts, locals reported.
Speaking to ARA News in Hasakah, the civil rights activist Ahmed Husseini reported that the U.S.-led coalition’s fighter jets bombed IS-held locations in the town of al-Arisha in the southern countryside of Hasakah, killing and injuring dozens of militants.
The coalition’s warplanes also targeted IS-held oil wells in the Kabiba area (east of al-Arisha), resulting in casualties among the residents of the area.
“At least four civilians were injured in Kabiba during the strikes on Sunday,” Husseini reported.
Meanwhile, the coalition’s warplanes bombed IS-held sites in the town of al-Hol at the border with Iraq, targeting the charity hospital of al-Rahma, which was used by IS militants as a base, as well as other locations in the town.
ARA News could not verify the number of IS casualties in al-Hol’s attack.
On the other hand, activists in the city of Qamishli (Qamishlo) in northeastern Syria told ARA News that the Syrian regime’s military forces bombed IS strongholds in the town of Tel Hamis in the southern countryside of the city, launching rockets from the National Airport of Qamishli.
Tel Hamis’ bombardment came amid exchange of mortar shells between the IS militant fighters and the Kurdish forces of the Popular Protection Units (YPG) in the vicinity of the town of Shaddadi in southern Qamishli.
