NOTE Graphic scenes were removed from this video. If you are interested in obtaining them please contact Transterra Media.

People’s Protection Units (YPG) are advancing near Qamishli and have already retaken over 25 villages in military operations against ISIS all throughout Syria. The YPG began a military campaign about two days ago against villages and urban centers controlled by ISIS located in rural areas to the south of Qamishli.

The military operation continues for the third consecutive day with the support of coalition air forces. With their help, the YPG were able to liberate dozens of villages.
This operation was well received by both the Arab and Kurdish inhabitants of these villages, who both demonstrated their support when the YPG entered their villages to free them from the control of ISIS, which is restricting them and denying them their freedom.

Soundbites

(Arabic, man) Ali al-Hameed, Arab YPG fighter:
“Our goal is to rid all the villages in the area of ISIS; the YPG are quickly advancing. We are all brothers in fighting ISIS.

(Kurdish, man) Hoker Hussein, Kurdish fighter:
“We are here to avenge our martyrs who died in previous battles in Tilhamis. We get our strength and determination from the blood of the martyrs and the support of our people and, thanks to them, we shall win against ISIS.”

(Kurdish, woman) Mother of female fighter:
“We are here today to show loyalty to the blood of our martyrs. We have a good spirit and we have complete faith in our victory and that we are going to liberate our area from ISIS.”

(Kurdish, man) Idris Taher Aziz, Kurdish civilian from the village of Kherbet Jehash:
“When ISIS came close to our villages, we escaped their violent assaults. Now we have decided to return to our village after it was liberated by the YPG. We are happy to return home and, thanks to the YPG, life is slowly getting back to normal.”

(Arab, man) Majeed al-Habib, an Arab from the village of Bazoona:
“ISIS treated us horribly. They used to implement tough laws; they banned us from smoking; they forced women to wear the Niqab; and threatened our religious sites in the village. When the YPG entered and liberated us, we were very happy and welcomed them.”

(Kurdish, man): Nori, Kurdish fighter:

“When you look at those documents and papers, you see strange laws and regulations, as if you were living 2000 years before this time. It really indicates how retrograde their mentality is and how much suffering they have imposed on people. We have 7 ISIS fighters’ corpses, some are Arabs, some are foreigners. One had a Saudi flag, indicating the Saudi identity of some of them.”

Iraqi soldiers hiding near the Al-Ukhaider Fortress, 50km south of Karbala, having been ordered to retreat from the Syrian border. On the way to supply the border patrol with aid, Sayed Mohammad al-Talkani, the representative of Muqtada al-Sadr, and Iraqi Member of Parliament, Fatm al Kreiti, found 2,500 soldiers sheltering in the archaeological site. They lacked food and water; many of them suffered from starvation and some had become sick and died. When asked why they retreated they said that they received orders from the officers, with no reason given, to abandon their posts and were told to leave the border open for ISIL to enter and seize the abandoned weapons left there.

Corona Virus in Saudi Arabia
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Corona Virus Script

Residents in the Saudi capital remain concerned, as the spread of the Middle East respiratory Syndrome - Corona Virus, shows no sign of slowing down.

Corona, which is a deadlier derivative of the SARS virus, has now resulted in more than 200 deaths and close to 600 infections across the Kingdom.

In response, the Saudi government has stepped up its campaign to increase awareness of the virus and encourage people to take precautions to prevent infection.
Text messages like this one from the Ministry of Health advise people to do things like cover their mouths when they cough and wash their hands regularly.

Crowded areas make it easier for corona to spread and so schools and universities have been at the forefront of the government's drive.

But concerned parents of university students have been calling for final exams to be brought forward, so students can leave early. This, after 4 girls at a leading Riyadh university became infected with the virus last month. Students at the university remain cautious...

[SOUNDBITES from university students]

But not all Saudis worry about the spread of the Corona Virus.

This humorous take on MERS [VIDEO] suggests that people's fears are exaggerated and that Saudis are becoming paranoid of catching the virus from each other.... In fact most human infections did not occur in this way .

The World Health Organisation says the majority of infections happened in health-care facilities, raising questions over the adequacy of measures to protect hospital staff.

The world health organisation says camels are the likely source of MERS. The Saudi Agriculture ministry recently warned people to wear protective clothes when dealing with the animals - prompting a backlash from farmers who mocked the advise of ministers with videos like this. [VIDEO OF CAMEL FARMERS].

So far, no travel restrictions have been place on Saudi Arabia. But the recent increase in infections has raised fears over the huge influx of visitors expected during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and the subsequent hajj pilgrimage in October.

The world health organisation has advised vulnerable people such as pregnant women and the elderly not to make the pilgrimage.
