ALEPPO, SYRIA (4:45 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Turkish-backed rebels announced the start of the third phase of “Operation Euphrates Shield” in northern Aleppo.

The third phase of the Euphrates Shield offensive will concentrate on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) main stronghold in the eastern countryside of Aleppo: Al-Bab.

According to Syrian opposition media, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their Islamist allies have captured Tal Homs, a small hilltop near the key border village of Al-Ra’i.

More details to come as the offensive rages across the northern countryside of Aleppo.

If they manage to take al-Bab, there’ll be a new Aleppo front, this time on the east side…

Estos son terroristas de Erdogan, prefieren obedecer a su amo extranjero que defender su patria de los invasores matando a su pueblo.

No doubt , ISIS will magically disappear from al Bab , they will evaporate into thin air , they will change into ”FSA” overnight , and they will ”liberate” next morning the city.
