BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – On Saturday, the Turkish Army and their rebel allies launched their 8th assault at the village of Al-Suflaniyah after taking a short hiatus from the battle in order to regroup.

With a large force and heavy armory, the Turkish Army and rebels stormed Al-Suflaniyah on Saturday, striking the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists from the northern perimeter of the village.

However, the Turkish Army’s infiltration attempt would take a turn for the worse on Saturday, when several of their vehicles were destroyed by the Islamic State terrorists protecting Al-Suflaniyah.

With their casualties mounting, the Turkish Army and their rebel allies made a strategic withdraw from Al-Suflaniyah’s northern flank; thus, abruptly ending their 8th assault on the village.

The Islamic State’s official media wing, Al-‘Amaq, released photos of the failed assault on Saturday night, showing images of destroyed Turkish armored vehicles outside of Al-Suflaniyah.

Al-Suflaniyah is located east of the strategic Aleppo Governorate city of Al-Bab, which is considered one of the Islamic State’s last strongholds in the province.

Too bad so sad. No love lost about either. It is good to see Turkey taking a hammering. It is good to see IS doing it as it means anyone who dies will be a plus for everyone else.

Aquí los terroristas de Erdogan solo juegan, Los sumnistros de armas siguen ingresando desde Turquía así informan FSD, formado por Kurdos y Arabes, Al gobierno Sirio es el que tiene que cortar las fronteras para que no sigan ingresando armas desde el norte.

“With a large force and heavy armory…” – which were clearly no match for some flipflop beardies and a few goats…
