Sometime during the afternoon, ISIS stormed and captured the villages of Shaqal Kabir and Muayshirah after clashing with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeastern Aleppo.

This follows four other villages that were also captured by the Islamic State yesterday.

Shaqal Kabir and Muayshirah are located west of Manbij city; the villages were likely seized by ISIS fighters redeployed from the Azaz front, a rebel-held region further west.

This Islamic State advance temporarily postpones the highly anticipated SDF assault on Manbij, one of few cities still held by ISIS in the Aleppo governorate.

A map of the area is available here.

What your so-called prophet used to say about women? They only worth half a man? Any of these girls worth at least 100 jihadis and those who pilot aircrafts have probably killed thousands of shitlamists. Has your prophet forseen air warfare?

If it isn’t doneand they can get away with it, they will go on forever, there’ll be something with a new name with always the same puppet masters! I wouldn’t even be surprised that some people in the intelligence… Read more »
