After days of clashes | Regime forces ki*ll commander of National Defence militia inside his house in Al-Hasakah

Al-Hasakah province: Abd Al-Qader Hammo the commander of the National Defence militia was killed in Al-Hasakah City, where the regime forces took control over the “villa” that Hammo was sheltered in along with several members.

According to reliable SOHR sources, Al-Hammo was sheltered inside a tunnel within a “villa” and refused to surrender, where regime forces were forced to throw grenades on the building and killed him.

A few hours ago, SOHR sources reported that regime forces completely took control the security square in Al-Hasakah city after heavy clashes between members of National Defence Forces and regime forces, while the fate of Lebanon pro-Hezbollah “Abdullkader Hamo” the commander of the National Defence remains unknown.

Meanwhile, two mortar shells from the security square targeted Al-Omran neighbourhood in western Al-Hasakah, leaving a woman and a little girl were injured in shrapnel.
Similarly, a little girl from Al-Khashman neighbourhood and another one from Al-Salhyah neighbourhood were injured in stray bullets due to clashes between regime forces and members of National Defence Forces.

Earlier today, activists reported hearing successive explosions in the security zone in Al-Hasakah city this dawn, which were caused by bombardment by regime tanks on headquarters of the National Defence Forces. This coincided with violent clashes between regime forces and NDF, amid a state of panic residents, while tension is growing in the area.

The violent clashes came as a part of attempts by regime forces to force the NDF leader to surrender.
