The Syrian army and popular forces staged larger scale attacks to completely clean up the main regions in the Northeastern city of Hasaka from the ISIL terrorists, Al-Alam News Network reports.

The army and Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) forces managed to mop up Aziziya district in the Northeastern part of Hasaka from the terrorist groups after Tuesday midnight.

Due to the high level of resistance shown by the army and popular forces in the past few days, Aziziya region witnessed a calmer day on Wednesday with the ISIL terrorists retreating from certain areas.

The popular forces also started demining operations in Aziziya region to pave the ground for the residents to return to their normal life.

The Syrian army also purged a strategic district in the city of Hasaka of ISIL Takfiri terrorists on Tuesday.

The army units regained control of Sakina district in Hasaka city. Sakina was considered an important stronghold of the terrorists in Hasaka.

On Saturday, the Syrian government confirmed that the army troops had secured Hasaka, rejecting reports that the ISIL terrorists were still in control of the main buildings there.

The Syrian government issued a statement, saying that Hasaka is now safe and the army soldiers are cleansing the city from the remnants of the Takfiri militants.

The statement added that the terrorists tried to sneak into the city for several times, but the Syrian forces hunted them down.

It also denied a report that a major prison in Hasaka was attacked by the terrorist group, saying that the facility in Ghweiran District is under the control of government forces.

Chief of Hasaka Police Department General Hasib al-Tahan told SANA that neighborhoods on Hasaka outskirts which were claimed to have been captured by the ISIL, including Ghweiran, al-Aziziyeh and al-Salehiyeh, are “all safe.”
