Aleppo Northern countryside update 15-4-2016

Moments ago, ISIS fighters were able to establish full control over Tall Sha’ir in northern Aleppo. Despite rebel commanders inside the town preparing for the attack, their fighters were simply overwhelmed as ISIS charged from three flanks, thereby forcing rebels to flee northwards.

Remarkably, this Islamic State advance comes as rebel forces have just recaptured a handful of villages from ISIS fighters on the Turkish-Syrian border.

Heavy clashes are still ongoing in northern Aleppo with the death toll already in the hundreds on both sides as regional clashes have been ongoing for more than a week.

Furthermore, several reports indicate that ISIS has torched nearby refugee camps set up by NGO’s.

While Turkey has reportedly purchased ISIS oil in the past, the Turkish Armed Forces have fired hundreds of shells across the Syrian border onto ISIS militants.

Meanwhile, the US warplane coalition against ISIS has been called in repeatedly today as to prevent further ISIS advances in at vulnerable region which holds a diminishing rebel-held enclave.

Nevertheless, despite efforts of rebel fighters, Turkish artillery units and US jets, ISIS militants were able to raise the flag of the Islamic State in the town center of Tall Sha’ir.
