BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – At least three Turkish Army soldiers were killed and another ten others were wounded after a surprise attack was carried out by the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) in eastern Aleppo on Wednesday.

According to the Islamic State’s official media wing, their forces carried out the attack against the Turkish Army east of Al-Bab, following their attempt to clear the outskirts of this city in east Aleppo.

Since launching the operation to liberate Al-Bab, the Turkish Army has suffered heavy casualties trying to infiltrate the Islamic State’s main line of defense around the city’s eastern and northern flanks.

Al-Bab is one of the Islamic State’s last strongholds in eastern Aleppo; if lost, they will be forced to send their remaining forces to the town of Deir Hafer near the Euphrates River.

Turkey is now being bitten by the snake they fed with the people of Syria.
Perfect Karma.
