Turkey-led forces will not be able to seize the key Syrian town of al-Bab from ISIS terrorist group until 2017.
The Turkish army and pro-Turkish have not been able to break ISIS defenses in the town’s outskirts despite repeated attempts to do this.
Turkey-led forces have suffered heavy casualties during their attempts to take control of al-Bab (over 500 fighters and up to 30 units of military equipment) and now are deploying reinforcements to restart offensive operations in the area.
However, it’s clear that if Turkish forces are able to seize al-Bab, this event will not take place in 2016.
According to pro-Turkish sources, over 400 ISIS terrorists were killed during the Turkish military operation near al-Bab.
