Turkish forces have failed to recapture the al-Bab hospital from ISIS terrorists in in the western outskirts of al-Bab in the Syrian province of Aleppo. However, the Turkish army and pro-Turkey militant groups are still in the control of the strategic Dalil roundabout.
This allows Turkish forces to keep pressure on ISIS units deployed in the town of al-Bab.
Clashes are ongoing.
On Monday, Turkey asked the US-led coalition to provide support to the Turkey-led operation against ISIS in al-Bab:
“The international coalition must carry out its duties regarding aerial support to the battle we are fighting in al-Bab. Not giving the necessary support is unacceptable,” Reuters quoted President Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, as saying.
The US-led coalition has not officially commented on the Turkish request.
At the same day, unconfirmed reports appeared that some “Russian” warplanes delivered a series of airstrikes against ISIS terrorists east of al-Bab. However, no photo or video evidence are available.
Meanwhile, ISIS released more photos of clashes near al-Bab. ISIS uses anti-tank guided missiles against Turkish military equipment:
