YPG Press Office has reported that constant military operations conducted by joined forces of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ) continue to confront the ISIS gang group attempting occupation efforts near the city of Hesekê, Rojava.
Conducting operational forces in the east of Hesekê, the Defense Units last night advanced from Aziziyah neighborhood to the south of the city and from the Mt. Kezwan to the east, and reached each other – in a substantial method to complete a sieging perimeter on Hesekê. In this way, all ISIS supply routes from rural districts to localities of Nashwa, Khweran and Panorama were cut off.
In west Hesekê, YPG/YPJ units last night progressed toward the Nashwa distric where sporadic clashes occurred between YPG/YPJ troops and ISIS gangs near the village of Um Hijra.
To rescue their beleaguered forces from the siege, ISIS gangs tried to carry out attacks from the town Hawl, eastern Hasakah, and the village of Malabiyah to the south of Hesekê. After an effective response, the two attempts were defeated; while there was no immediate word on ISIS attackers’ possible dead or wounded.
The statement further reported that leading unceasing military campaigns, the Defense Units continue to attack ISIS gangs in far eastern/southern countryside of Kobanê.
In south Kobanê, security forces were informed last night that two suspected ISIS fighters have attempted to infiltrate in areas under YPG/YPJ Units’ initiative. To capture these gang forces, YPG/YPJ troops began an operation and eventually killed the two gang operatives after a short time contact.
