Qamishli, Syria – Locals reported that the international coalition’s warplanes bombed Saturday several locations of the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) in the countryside of Hasakah, in northeastern Syria.

This comes amid decreasing clashes between the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and IS group in the vicinity of the town of Tel Hamis, south of Qamishli (Qamishlo).

Speaking to ARA News in Hasakah, civil rights activist Ismail Ali said that the U.S.-led international coalition bombed several IS strongholds near Arisha area south of the city of Hasakah as well as in the northern countryside of Hasakah.

“The international coalition forces targeted IS locations near the town of Tel Hamis, without receiving information of injuries or losses,” the source reported.

Ali pointed out that the clashes between the IS hardline group and the YPG forces were eased in the vicinity of Tel Hamis.

“Meanwhile other clashes broke out between the IS extremists and the pro-regime forces backed by militias of the National Defense Army in other villages near the town of Tel Hamis,” he said.

The Joint Command of the international coalition forces announced Saturday afternoon that their forces conducted 29 anti-terrorism air strikes in both Syria and Iraq over the past 24 hours, including 11 strikes on IS radicals locations near Kobane (Ain al-Arab) in the province of Aleppo, in northern Syria, and two other air raids near Deir ez-Zor and al-Bukamal, in the eastern part of the country.
