The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Thursday that at least 24 civilians, including 11 children, have been killed in the last 24 hours by the latest Turkish bombardment of Al-Bab.

The Turkish military however claims that only 15 terrorists were killed and did not mention any civilians.

Although Turkish-led forces have entered al-Bab from the western flank, it has made little progress according to the monitoring group.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claimed on Tuesday however that Turkish-led forces controlled the majority of the contested city.

These civilians have allowed IS to use them as human shields. p.s. We should not join the MSM blame game that asks to submit to humanitarian kidnappings that endanger the lives of men that fight IS. Like the MSM tried for the terrorists in Eastern Aleppo. BTW. A backer that makes bread for IS is an economic target. All who stay with IS are a target. Only when all even the IS sympathizers run – the Caliphate breaks down immediately.

It is very difficult for civilians to escape from ISIS. They are killed. Don’t you know?

Yes I know Francoise. But I also know that they are caught because they did not run right away when IS came.

Es conocido que El Observatorio Sirio llamado para los Derechos Humanos juega a favor de los llamados rebeldes moderados, con esta afirmación lo está admitiendo que se han cometido excesos con la población civil, esto sucede por que ambos bandos están formados por mercenarios a sueldo (terroristas de ISIS y Erdogan)
