Following up on the capture of 4 villages this morning, rebel forces in northern Aleppo have seized an additional 6 villages from ISIS during the afternoon; namely Yahmul, Jarez, Kafrah, Kafr Ghan, Sawran, Tilalyan, and Ghazal.

Further rebel advances are ongoing as we speak.

The villages were abandoned by the Islamic State as ISIS commanders are seemingly concerned about being cut off in the Aleppo governorate due to two simultaneous offensives around Manbij and in western Raqqa.

Despite the loss of (at least) ten villages today, little to no casualties were inflicted upon the Islamic State amid their retreat.

A comparable map of northern Aleppo is available here showing the frontline situation two weeks ago after a major Islamic State advance which had the jihadist group capture a large arms depot and many villages from rebel forces.

Well, I suppose they’ve built serious defenses for this village : they’ll look really stupid if it is conqueered… Just for the symbol, it would be nice that “crusaders” take the town and the best fun would be if they looked like templar knights when showing their prisoners, then throwing their shoes at ’em (this is one of the worsts insults in the arab world) and c**p and p**s on their black flag then burn it (especially when you know what’s written on)… One thing these bigots really hate : being ridiculed… BTW, the post Charlie-Hebdo attack 1st issue pictured… Read more »
