ARA News

Qamishli, Syria− Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) targeted on Wednesday strongholds of Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Nusra Front) with a bombed car and several suicide bombings in Margada town (100 km south of al-Hasaka city) northeast of Syria. 

Ammar Abdul Rahman, media activist based in Hasaka, told ARA News that the operations caused a large damage in the area, without any reports about the bombings’ casualties.

“The bombings in Margada were followed by fierce clashes erupted between members of the ISIL and al-Nusra militants (backed by FSA rebels) on Wednesday evening,” Abdul Rahman said. 

“Al-Nusra Front declared that they have killed nearly 40 militants of the ISIL in an ambush near the center of the grain of Margada town,” Abdul Rahman added.

Meanwhile, the grain center and a number of residential buildings in Atshana village (in Hasaka province) were reportedly exposed to “robbery” by unknown groups. Locals blamed the al-Qaeda splinter group of ISIL for the incident.
