BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Turkish forces reportedly entered Al-Bab city for the first time today after a long battle with the Islamic State (ISIS) militants in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo.

According to Syrian opposition activists, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Turkish Army entered Al-Bab this morning, seizing the Al-Hikmah Hospital after a short battle with the Islamic State forces.

The Al-Hikmah Hospital is located at the western gates of Al-Bab near the Sheikh Aqil Mountains.

If this report proves true, this will be the first time a non-ISIS group has entered Al-Bab since the Islamist rebels retreated from the city in 2014.
