Syrian government forces and Kurdish fighters have pushed ISIS terrorists from the northeastern city of Hasakah, according to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Al-Alam News Network reports.

The ISIS Takfiri group “was expelled by the army from Zuhur, the last district in which it was present in Hasakah,” Rami Abdel Rahman, the director of the London-based group said.

He said the militants belonging to the terrorist group “have been pushed to the southern outskirts of the city.”

The victory was achieved after more than a month of fighting in the city between Syrian government forces and Kurdish fighters on the one side and the Takfiri terrorists on the other.

A Syrian military source also said that Syrian army forces killed more than 500 gunmen in the process of clearing the city from Takfiri militants.

The source highlighted the contribution of Kurdish forces to the victory, saying they backed the Syrian army in cutting the militants’ supply routes.

According to the source, the Syrian army forces are currently demining the city.

A local Kurdish commander said at least 15 villages around Hasakah are now uninhabitable due to the mines laid by terrorists.
