The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) engaged in heavy fighting with the ISIS terrorists in the Northeastern province of Hasaka and inflicted a heavy death toll on the militants.

The clashes erupted between the SDF and the terrorists near the small town of Merkedeh in the Northern part of Hasaka province, which claimed the lives of several terrorists and damaged their military hardware.

On Saturday, the SDF thwarted the ISIS terrorists' attempts to target the Kurdish fighters' positions in the Southwestern part of Hasaka.

The ISIS suicide-belt attackers were identified and targeted by the Kurdish fighter before they could reach to the SDF strongholds near Abdulaziz mount in Hasaka province.

Scores of Takfiri terrorists were killed and wounded in the clashes with the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and SDF forces.

The Kurdish forces have made considerable military gains against the ISIS in the Northern and Northeastern parts of Syria in recent weeks.

The SDF that is comprised of mainly Kurdish fighters as well as a few hundred Syrian Arab dissident forces have received trainings from the US and have been provided with scanty US-coalition air support in their battles in Raqqa province in Northeastern Syria; but in Northern and Northwestern battlefronts, they have been operating alongside the YPG and received the Russian air backup in their Aleppo wars that started with the conquest of Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates early in February; FNA reported.
