Syrian Helicopter Gunships Kill Tens of ISIL Commanders in Hasaka Province
The Syrian army helicopter gunships killed tens of the ISIL commanders and injured dozens more in a rocket attack on their meeting in Hasaka province in Northeastern Syria on Tuesday.
Three Syrian military choppers tageted the gathering of the Takfiri terrorists’ commanders in Southern Hasaka. The attack was carried out after the army received intel about ISIL commanders’ plan to hold a coordinating meeting in Hasaka.
Meantime, the Syrian army’s artillery units pounded the terrorists’ positions in Al-Shadadi, Al-Houl, Bab al-Kheir and Al-Khamael town, killing at least 80 ISIL terrorists and destroying their vehicles and military equipment.
On Monday, Kurdish forces liberated 2 villages in the Southern countryside of Kobani city in Syria from the control of the ISIL terrorists.
The Kurdish forces managed to purge the villages of Alkan and Jaber Matars in the Southern countryside of Kobani of the ISIL terrorists, killing a large group of the Takfiri militants, the Arabic-language Al-Mayadeen television reported.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. According to reports, more than seven million Syrians have become internally displaced.
