BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Turkish Army, alongside their rebel forces, launched a massive attack on Al-Bab City today, targeting the strategic Al-Farouk Hospital that is under the control of the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).
However, despite the intensity of the attack, the Turkish Army and prebels have made minimal gains today, leaving the ISIS terrorists in firm control of the city’a western flank.
According to the Islamic State’s official media wing, their forces foiled the massive Turkish Army led assault, killing and wounding more than 50 military personnel in the process.
The primary cause of these high casualties was a suicide attack that was initiated by an Islamic State terrorist west of the Al-Farouq Hospital.
For nearly a month now, the Turkish Army has attempted to enter the key city of Al-Bab; however, they have been repeatedly repelled by the terrorist forces each time.
