Fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) stand guard at a checkpoint in the northern Iraq city of Mosul, June 11, 2014. Since Tuesday, black clad ISIL fighters have seized Iraq's second biggest city Mosul and Tikrit, home town of former dictator Saddam Hussein, as well as other towns and cities north of Baghdad.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Turkish Army launched another powerful assault in the east Aleppo countryside on Wednesday, targeting the Islamic State’s positions northeast of Al-Bab city.

Backed by their rebel forces, the Turkish Army stormed the eastern perimeter of Al-Slunfaniyeh on Wednesday, resulting a long battle with the Islamic State terrorists protecting this village near Al-Bab.

However, despite their best efforts, the Turkish Army was unable to advance at Al-Slunfaniyah after several hours of combat with the Islamic State terrorists.

  1. Turkey are friends with isis scum and are not really serious about fighting them. Turkey are invading terrorists same as isis . Peace cannot happen while Turks occupy Syrian territory.

    • Well, at least Turkey’s govt… And with the crazy purges Gollum did in the army to secure his power over them, thanks to his false-coup, while the Army has the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to overthrow him if he breaches constitution (and he already did it many times!), army finds itself with a totally incompetent leadership, proof is that the army vs. PKK kill ratio was 1.16-1, now it’s 1-3.2 for 2016 and the “coup” happened only on July 15th… Motivation is very low while the roaches gained experience in combat in the last years and they’re at the highest levels of brainwashed fanaticism…
      No surprise results are poor.

  2. Erdogan y sus terroristas invadiendo un país que no le pertenece, El ejercito Sirio debe avanzar hacia Al-Bab y expulsar a los terroristas Turcos. Los verdaderos patriotas Sirios estarán de acuerdo con la idea.
