• ALEPPO, SYRIA (11:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a counter-offensive in the northern Aleppo countryside on Thursday, targeting the villages located at Al-Rai’s western perimeter.

According to the Islamic State’s official media wing “Al-Amaq,” their forces recaptured three villages near Al-Rai after a fierce battle with the Turkish-backed rebels on Thursday.

The villages captured by the Islamic State terrorists on Thursday were Tal Hajjar, Shawah Al-Kabeera, and Shawah Al-Saghira.

Recently, the Turkish-backed rebels, led by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), launched the third phase of “Operation Euphrates Shield”; however, their attack has since been forestalled by the terrorist forces.
