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. They continued their lightning advance on Thursday, moving into towns just an hour's drive from the capital. Picture taken June 11, 2014.

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.

According to Al-‘Amaq, the entire Turkish Army attack was foiled by the Islamic State, marking the 5th time in 2 weeks that their forces have repelled the former’s advance in Al-Slufaniyah.
