January 4, 2017: Hasakah (Syria)

According to ARA News, ISIS launched on Wednesday an offensive on headquarters of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria’s northeastern Hasakah Governorate. The attack, which took place near the city of Shaddadi in the southern countryside of Hasakah, came as an attempt by ISIS to regain positions that were taken by the Kurdish forces in February 2016. ISIS militants hit YPG headquarters in al-Malha town in western Shaddadi with dozens of mortar shells, a Kurdish officer told ARA News. Dozens of Kurdish fighters were either killed or injured in the offensive, amidst massive destruction in al-Malha caused by ISIS shelling.
