Syrian democratic forces liberate al-Shaddadi

By Rudaw 21/2/2016
Syrian democratic forces liberated al-Shaddadi city, located 60km south of al-Hasakah after a fierce battle with ISIS ended in their escape and loss of their lives and equipment.

The democratic forces were able to take control over al-Shaddadi, where ISIS resided in south al-Hasakah suburbs after an attack that lasted for a few days on the city.
The Kurdish forces were able to cut two of the supply roads used by  ISIS, where one connects al-Shaddadi to Mosul in Iraq and to al-Raqqa, the ISIS stronghold in Syria.

Well done, you folks. With the liberation of such a key supply and trading town, you have now forced Daesh to take the long, hard road between Mosul and Raqqa, and that has helped really put the pressure on their false caliphate in Syria. Now I expect you'll be watching carefully for any Daesh counterattacks that are sure to happen, but hopefully they shall be swiftly repelled if they do occur. And of course, implementing your speciality of self-governance in the region like in the rest of Rojava, so that the Kurds, Arabs, Turkmen, Yazidis, Armenians and Christians can rule their own ways of life as part of the grand peace and unity strategy that you guys have been bringing to the main folds. And so, you guys, keep up the good work, and we all hope that Manbij, Jarabulus, Dabiq and of course, Raqqa, are eventually liberated by your supreme efforts, as you are of course, the true freedom fighters of Syria in the current climates. Biji the Democratic Forces of Syria, may God Almighty grant you complete victory over Daesh in the next few months, folks, as the truly united forces that are desperately needed to finish off those khawarijs terrorists once and for all in Syria. Cheerio, and good luck to you all, lads. From a Christian who sympathises with the peaceful Muslims.

Next target should be the city of Maadan to cut off Deir Ezzor from Raqqa. The attack should start from Mount Qizwan. Then the YPG should storm Tabqa dam and encircle Raqqa. 2016 is going to be a tough year for ISIS terrorists. Power to the YPG!
