    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, NOVEMBER 24 - Clashes between Islamic State ISIS jihadists and Syrian loyalist forces resumed Monday morning near natural gas wells in central Syria, the National Observatory for the Human Rights in Syria (Ondus) reported, stating that the Syrian government forces resisted ISIS attempts to seize energy establishments in the area of Shaer, in the province of Homs and Palmyra between Dayr az Zor. The wells of Shaer were attacked by ISIS last July, which was able to take possession of the area before Syrian government forces managed to re-establish control.

    Also according to Ondus, Kurdish YPG militias which defend Kobane took other ISIS-controlled positions on Monday, leading to at least 18 deaths among jihadists and an unknown number of casualties among Kurds. The NGO states that five air raids were made by the US-led International Coalition on ISIS workstations Isis east of the city. According to testimonies collected by the NGO, YPG forces returned to take over some buildings in the city center which had previously fallen into the hands of the Islamic state, including the cultural center.
