Turkey’s Anadolu Agency news has just announced that Turkish-led forces are to take full control of the ISIS-held Al-Bab city in Aleppo countryside.

This has now brought an end to intense battles between ISIS and the Turkish-led forces comprising of the Turkish military, the Free Syrian Army and Islamist allies in Al-Bab.

Meanwhile, the Free Syrian Army has announced full control over the city.

As part of the deal, ISIS will retreat Al-Bab to Deir Hafer, where the Syrian Army are making rapid advancements against ISIS.

ISIS must also retreat with only individual weapons and must leave all heavy weaponry behind.

The retreat for ISIS will prove to be difficult as the Syrian Army had cut the main roads from Al-Bab, meaning only difficult dirt roads are their means for escape, making them exposed to Syrian and Russian airstrikes, as well as Syrian fire control.

ISIS are yet to make an announcement on their supposed retreat.

I know the Syrian government has struck the “green bus” deal mant times with the “moderate” terrorists but they never did and never would strike deals with the world’s #1 enemy.
