The Islamic State advanced in Hasakah after clashes with Kurdish YPG forces. Coalition airstrikes targeted the Islamic State in Aleppo, Deir Izzour, and Homs; coalition airstrikes were carried out also in Deraa, Hama, Hasakah, and Idlib. The pace of the air campaign in Syria is said to be now similar to that in Iraq, with "near continuous" sorties; but only 8 of the 48 coalition airstrikes so far in Syria have targeted al Qaeda. The Al Nusrah Front, the Islamic Front, and rebels clashed with regime forces in Damascus and in north and west Aleppo; and with Islamic State forces in Dabeq in Aleppo. Al Nusrah Front spokesman Abu Firas al Suri claimed that the coalition airstrikes are part of the West's war on Islam and said the jihadists in Syria are engaged in a long war that could last decades.

Coalition airstrikes have halted most of the oil production in Deir Izzour, a source of Islamic State income, and a coalition airstrike today killed a senior IS official near Deir Izzour city. Coalition airstrikes also targeted an IS headquarters in Menbej city in Aleppo, as well as IS camps, checkpoints, and facilities in Raqqah. Some 73 fighters joined the IS in Aleppo over the past few days. Kurdish YPG forces continued to clash with the IS in Aleppo. Hundreds of Kurds broke through Turkish border fences to re-enter Syria to defend their homes in Aleppo province. The Al Nusrah Front and the Islamic Front battled regime forces in Damascus near Jobar and in Reef Dimashq. Civilians living near forces of the Islamic State, Al Nusrah Front, and Ahrar al Sham in Deir Izzour, Hasakah, Aleppo, and Raqqah are evacuating their homes.
