BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) pushed back against the Turkish Armed Forces on Sunday, seizing several sites near the western outskirts of Al-Bab City in eastern Aleppo.
ISIS began the counter-assault during the wee hours on Sunday, sending a suicide bomber to target the Turkish Army’s defenses near the Al-Farouq Hospital in western Al-Bab.
The suicide bombing proved successful for the terrorist group, as ISIS was able to overrun the Turkish Army’s positions and regain control of the Al-Farouq Hospital before noon on Sunday.
Following the capture of the Al-Farouq Hospital, the Islamic State militants stormed Jabal Aqil, resulting in another series of intense firefights with the Turkish Army.
The Islamic State terrorists were once again successful in their attack, seizing Jabal Aqil after the Turkish Army retreated west of this mountaintop in eastern Aleppo.
ISIS has officially repelled the Turkish Army’s advance at least four times in the last ten days in western Al-Bab.
