Clashes broke out on Saturday between Kurdish fighters from the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Islamic State’s (ISIS) militants in northern Raqqa, military sources reported.

The clashes centered in the vicinity of Tishreen Dam in the northwestern countryside of Raqqa, where the YPG and allies from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) repelled an attack by ISIS militants on the strategic dam.

“A group of Daesh terrorists attacked our headquarters near Tishreen Dam on Saturday evening. The group has used heavy machine guns and mortar fire in the offensive,” YPG spokesman Hebun Osman told ARA News, using an acronym for ISIS. “The group then tried to infiltrate into our command center east of the dam, which led to clashes that claimed lives of dozens of Daesh members.”
