More than 130 ISIS fighters have been killed in just one province of Syria in the past four days.
Insurgents from the terror group were killed by troops of the Kurdish YPG militia in Hasaka, while US-backed coalition airstrikes have continued to pound ISIS’s positions.
As a result, 70 villages have been wrested from the terrorists control according to figures released by the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Also killed in the clashes were five members of the YPG militia, including a foreign soldier, it was claimed.
