“Unknown warships were targeting pro-ISIS hideouts in remotes areas outside Qandala town on Tuesday afternoon,” said the resident.

According to the resident, there were casualties from the warships shelling, but could not give the exact figure.

“There are deaths from the attacks, but we do not know the exact number because of the remoteness of the area,” the resident added.
