Pro-Turkey militant groups, supported by the Turkish Amred Forces, have seized 4villages in the Syrian northern province of Aleppo: Sab Weran from Kurdish YPG forces; Khalileha, Zurzur and Kirijah from ISIS militants.
Clashes are ongoing between pro-Turkey forces and Kurdish YPG units for the opportunity to storm the key Aleppo town of Al-Bab, currently controlled by ISIS.
The map below depicts the current military situation in the area. More about the race for al-Bab can be found here.
SAA will need to attack from 2 sides (eastern and southern) of Al Bab although with Turkey erecting air defences in nearby areas and new Turkish bases air sorties would be difficult to carry out.
Have the SAA drive east to the Kurdish from Manbij , keeping the Kurds and Turks north of them . ( Magharet Abu Jabbar , – across to , – Al Birrah ) . Let the Kurds and the Turkish fight ISIS and each other . Just have the backs of the Kurds in the south , which would also block ISIS resupply or escape to the north .
