The Syrian Arab Army’s 47th Brigade of the Special Forces (Al-Qawat Al-Khassa)  – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Assyrian militia “Sootooro” – has taken control of 13 towns in the matter of 24 hours inside the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

According to a military source in Al-Hasakah, the 47th Brigade was able to capture to towns of Farfarat, Tal Ahmad, Khirbat Noura, Tafeehiyah, Khaznat, Sawama’ Al-Tawareej, Bayzari, Khirbat Zouman, Tal Assoud, Maqbrat Tal Assoud, Al-Bwaab, Tal Al-Fawqaani, and Tal Hamza from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

With the YPG’s capture of Tal Hamees and Tal Brak, the Al-Hasakah Governorate has become ISIS’ biggest challenge in Syria, as their vital supply lines flow through the province and into Ar-Raqqa, Homs, and Deir Ezzor.

The SAA and their allies are currently positioned north of Tal Hamees and Tal Brak; they will focus on southern Al-Hasakah and Jabal ‘Abdel-‘Aziz (‘Abdel-‘Aziz  Mountains).
