Aleppo, Syria (3:12 A.M.) – Shortly after the death of one of the Islamic State’s most notorious commanders, IS terrorists launched a massive counterattack in the southwestern countryside of Jarablus.

Spearheaded by a suicide attack carried out by Abu Ayman Al-Maghribi (Moroccan origin), ISIS militants managed to recapture the villages of Kiliyeh, Arab Hasan Saghir, Al-Muhsinli, and Al-Bulduq from both Kurdish and Turkish forces.

Two Turkish tanks were reportedly destroyed in the clashes between the two jihadist groups while dozens are said to have perished as a result of the suicide attacks.
