BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – The Turkish Armed Forces and their rebel allies have imposed full control over the Islamic State’s east Aleppo stronghold of Al-Bab, Turkish state media reported minutes ago.

Other reports have surfaced from pro-rebel activists claiming that the Free Syrian Army command and Islamic State agreed to allow the latter to safely withdraw from Al-Bab.

If these reports prove true, then the Turkish Forces will have successfully captured their second major city in rural Aleppo.

The Al-Bab offensive began last Fall, when the Turkish Army sent dozens of tanks and a large number of military personnel to participate in this imperative battle in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.
