ALEPPO, SYRIA (6:22 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebel forces launched a fresh offensive in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo on Saturday aimed at capturing the ISIS enclave east of Mare’.

Swiftly, the FSA-affiliated rebels were able to secure the village of Al-Ghilaniyah, the Kuwaiti Farms, and Arshaf village almost fully surrounding Dabiq, a site of theological importance to the Islamic State fanatics who superstitiously believe the site to be the location of a decisive battle in the end times between the believers and the infidels.

To make matters worse for the IS terrorists, the Islamist rebels reigned control over the village of Ghayton only to capture the adjacent city of Sawran after hours of intense clashes. As it stands, the battle for the symbolic Dabiq is set to occur in the very near future as the opposition forces have captured most of the surrounding villages avoiding the aforementioned hilltop until the very end.

It remains unknown whether the terror group will waste its limited manpower retaining control over a nonstrategic hilltop in the vast Aleppo countryside.
