Iranian news claims ISIL's Top Saudi Female Commander Killed in Hasaka. (Fars).
Rima al-Jarish, the Saudi ringleader of ISIL's female fighters who coordinated the terrorist group's media activities, was killed in clashes with the Syrian army and Kurdish forces in Hasaka province on Friday.
Al-Jarish was the media coordinator of ISIL's al-Khansa Battalion in al-Shadadi town in Hasaka province.
Al-Jarish was wife of a Saudi inmate and mother of an ISIL commander who left Saudi Arabia for Syria in 2014 to join the ISIL.
On Thursday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) in a striking attack in Northeastern Syria forced the ISIL to retreat from vast regions in the Eastern parts of Hasaka Province.
The SDF and YPG won back the Assyrian-populated village of Al-Kharitah, also known as Gesaya, and four nearby villages around al-Hawl in Hasaka Province in a surprise attack as their other units have been striking hard at the ISIL, Al-Nusra Front, Ahrar al-Sham and other terrorist groups in the Northern parts of Aleppo province in Northwestern Syria in conjunction with the Damascus army, National Defense Forces and Hezbollah.
The YPG Kurds have recently bonded with the Damascus government. The Syrian army sent several arms cargoes to the YPG troops in the Northeastern province of Hasaka and trained the first group of Kurdish volunteer forces in the provincial capital city of Hasaka last week. Read the full story here.
