Some 60 militants of Free Syrian Army (FSA) related factions died in northern Aleppo today as their forces rushed through areas abandoned by ISIS during its large-scale retreat from the northern countryside of Aleppo.

According to the ISIS affiliated Amaq Agency, most of the casualties were inflicted by mines placed in and around Jakkah and Talghar, two villages near the Turkish border with Syria.

Nevertheless, Turkish-backed FSA groups – heavily assisted by squadrons of Turkish tanks – have seized around 80 villages from ISIS and the Kurdish YPG since ‘Operation Euphrates Shield’ was initiated on August 24, less than a month ago.

Today alone, rebel factions have captured six villages (Tall Sha’ir, Qarah kuz, Tall Ar, Talar Gharbi, Talar Sharqi and Jakkah) from ISIS. Meanwhile, a FSA official said Syrian rebels had destroyed an ISIS suicide vehicle near Talaar Sharqi, west of Al-Rai.

On the other hand, an ISIS anti-tank crew destroyed a Turkish tank during the battle for Jakkah and killed Abdel Karim ‘Aleeto, commander of the FSA’s 13th Division.

this reminds me – why does not SAA use the minefileds in areas with low priority and weak defense???

Because Minefields are against international law due to the danger they pose to civilians long after the war is over.

Where’s the proof – pictures/videos, names? Is the ISIS affiliated Amaq Agency even a reliable and accurate source?
