Hasaka, SANA – Units of the armed forces continue sweeping Qhweiran neighborhood in the city of Hasaka to which they restored security last Tuesday so as to secure the return of residents back to their homes, a military source said.
The source told SANA reporter that the army units dismantled dozens of explosive devices which terrorists had earlier planted in the neighborhood before they were forced out of it.
The army units, the source added, also found in the terrorists’ dens a large quantity of mortar rounds, homemade rockets, rocket launchers, RPGs, machine guns, medical equipment, binoculars and communication devices.
Governor of Hasaka Mohammad Za’al al-Ali hailed the “achievement” of restoring security and stability to Ghweiran neighborhood that was made by the army units in cooperation with the Internal Security Forces and the national defense units.
He expressed confidence that this achievement will encourage the residents of the neighborhood who were forced to flee the area to return back to their homes, voicing hope that terrorism will be defeated in all other areas of the northeastern province of Hasaka.
