ALEPPO, SYRIA (11:15 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a counter-offensive in northern Aleppo today, targeting several villages that were under the control of the Turkish-backed rebels.

ISIS began their offensive by storming the small village of Akhatarin in northern Aleppo; this resulted in a fierce battle with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) that lasted for short period of time.

According to the Islamic State’s official media wing, their forces managed to capture Akhatarin and several other villages including Al-Aziziyeh, Qabtan, and Mazar’a ‘Aala.

These aforementioned villages were originally captured by the Free Syrian Army and their allies recently; however, a swift counter-offensive by the Islamic State terrorists resulted in the complete withdrawal of the Turkish-backed rebels.
