In the early morning hours on Sunday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – spearheaded by the Kurdish YPG – renewed attacks on ISIS-controlled villages directly north of Aleppo city.

During the assault on Tall Qarrah, upwards of 30 YPG combatants were shot dead by entrenched ISIS fighters who were expecting the offensive, Amaq Agency reported.

Making matters worse, two armored Kurdish vehicles, a T-72 tank and a BMP, were also destroyed during the clashes.

Meanwhile, a Turkish-backed rebel offensive is making rapid headway against ISIS along the Turkish-Syrian border.

Moments ago, Syrian rebels, aided by Turkish tanks, captured Bab Laymoun and Haji Wali, leaving their forces only two kilometers from connecting the Azaz pocket with the Jarablus pocket.

Notably, ISIS will lose its last Turkish border territory if this rebel offensive goes to plan.

What do you think, Chris Tomson? Is Turkey going to stop its advance or is it going to try to take Aleppo City? If it stops its advance, will Turkey and its proxies eventually withdraw to allow the Syrian government to control the border region?

SDF has lost an incredible number of seasoned Arab fighters who have defected and joined the Turkish “Euphrates Shield” Offensive.
Also, SDF(YPG) seems to be unable to launch offensives without coalition airstrikes to their aid as they literally just charged into a wall of well entrenched ISIS fighters instead of withering down the defenses enough with artillery/mortars.
