A CURFEW has been announced for the north-eastern Syrian city of Hasakah as intense fighting between Islamic State (IS) fighters and Kurdish-led forces continued into its fourth day on Sunday, January 23.
The Interior Board of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) said the curfew in Hasakah would start on Monday and last for seven days.
On Thursday, IS militants attacked Gweiran Prison, where thousands of IS members have reportedly been held since the group’s defeat in Syria in 2019.
Reports citing the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said at least 160 suspected militants and 27 members of the U.S.-backed force had been killed in the attack.
