BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The Turkish Army launched another offensive to seize the key town of Al-Sulfaniyah in east Aleppo on Friday, striking the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses from the eastern flank, while their jet provided much needed air cover.
Despite the intensity of the attack, the Turkish Army and their rebel allies failed to capture Al-Sulfaniyah for the 9th time this month.
According to the Islamic State’s official media wing on Telegram, their forces killed several Turkish Army personnel and destroyed much of their military hardware while foiling this large-scale offensive to capture Al-Sulfaniyah and encircle Qabasin.

The Turkish Army has attempted to liberate the Al-Bab region from the Islamic State for the past two months; however, they have been forestalled for nearly 25 days in the Al-Sulfaniyah area, as their forces have failed to capture this town from the terrorist group.
