BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Turkish-led Euphrates Shield forces attempted to seize the key village of Bzaah from the Islamic State (ISIS) militants in eastern Al-Bab, today, for the second time in the last 24 hours.

However, the Turkish forces were once again unsuccessful in this military endeavor, as the Islamic State militants managed to drive back their fighters from the Bzaah front after several hours of intense fighting in eastern Al-Bab.

In addition to their shortcomings at Bzaah, the Turkish forces also failed to seize the town of Qabasin after several attempts.

Despite these setbacks, the Turkish forces did manage to capture the Al-Rai Farms on Sunday afternoon, following another short battle with the Islamic State militants

I wonder who holds the roads between Al-Bab and the towns of Bzaah and Qabasin. p.s. The Turkish troops still cannot fight IS in urban settings. While they do ok in the open.

You’ve got to fix your site; you cannot stayed logged in, ever. And this has been going on for a long time now, what did you guys do that changed how easy staying signed in used to be? I used to be able to shut down my laptop and still be signed into Masdar, now I’m logged out every time I go on a new article!

Also what happened to the massive Eastern Ghouta offensive that you wrote articles about? You said “in the coming weeks”, and it’s been like a month or two now.

Yes. The problem is probably from the amount of SPAM they got before the change. Hope they can fiend a solution that suits both the people that want to comment and the SPAM removers. p.s.
I tried today to bookmark my profile. This stayed logged in so far today. I will see tomorrow if that helps. But the main problem is that I come normally from Facebook or from my mail account. And I get this CAPTCHA thing then. It probably also creates extra work for the SPAM admins when I use the CAPCHA to comment.
