The seized villages – Qantara, Qeragoz, Tal shair and Tatahumus – are located west of the strategic Turkish-controlled town of Al Rai. ‘Opposition sources’ claim that 15 Turkish-backed militants (allegedly from the Free Syrian Army) were killed in the recent claashes.
In total, ISIS has seized over 20 villages from the Ankara-led forces in northern Syrian since the start of the group’s counter-offensive few days ago. Ankara-backed militants are retreating from the ISIS forces despite the support of Turkish artillery units, battle tanks and warplanes.
