On June 8, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) captured the village of Hamidiyah 5km north of the strategic town of Dashisha near the Syrian-Iraqi border, in the southern al-Hasakah countryside, according to the Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA).

Currently, the SDF is clearing Hamidiyah from the mines and IEDs which were planted by ISIS fighters before their withdrawal from the village. ANHA also reported that SDF fighters uncovered a long tunnel that connects the village with Dashisha.

“Our liberation operations will not end here we will continue our advance towards the villages of al-Rohania, Abu Skhir, Abu Sakr, and the morals of the fighters are high,” Baran Kobani a fighter of the SDF told ANHA.

In spite of the heavy clashes around Dashisha, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq has not released any report regarding the situation there yet.

Local observers believe that the SDF will reach the outskirt of Dashisha soon because ISIS’ defense appears to be collapsing rapidly around this border town.

    I think that the remaining ISIS pockets are considerably fewer, less well armed, and supplied than people around the world think.

      And yet they keep attacking over and over and over again. It seems that Daesh really are unstoppable and have an unlimited amount of soldiers.

      The ISIS Suweida pocket may fall fast because they are no longer well armed.
      What I find interesting is how some from S Damascus got there.
      Did some green buses take them, or is Daesh still supplied with vehicles from other areas?
      I think most of their recent attacks have to do with gaining supplies and some transport.
      The caliphate is fading away, just like Daula troll is gone. :D
