Following yesterday’s gains, government forces, led by the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, liberated the village of Shaalah and the Shaalah Radar Station near the ISIS stronghold of al-Bab in the province of Aleppo.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Armed Forces and pro-Turkish militant groups took control of the village of Seflaniye east of al-Bab and besieged the ISIS-held town of Qabasin.
If Turkish forces keep control of Seflaniye and retake Qabasin from ISIS, they will be able to flank al-Bab from the eastern direction. This should to set a foothold for a final storm of the town.
The military situation for ISIS units deployed in al-Bab become very complicated.
