Syrian army and Kurds recapture parts of Hasakah

The Syrian army, backed up by Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) have recaptured parts of the northeastern city of Hasakah, according to local media.

Isis militants still hold the south of the city, but reports suggest that they might be losing their footing.

Local activists are also claiming that former residents began to return to their homes on Sunday, after they were pushed out of the city during the Isis advance.
