The Turkish-backed militants have declared a military zone in the Al Bab countryside in Syria (look at the map above). This move clearly depicts the fact that the Turkey-led forces are aiming to seize this strategic city from the ISIS terrorist group. ISIS has answered with sending reinforcements to al-Bab and its countryside in order to prepare for clashes for the area.
On September 6, the Turkey-led forces captured Tal Al-Hawa, Al-Rawdah, Al Mustafa Al Kabir, Cub Al Dam, Al Masammah, Al Humayrah, Haydar Basa from ISIS. According to pro-Kurdish sources the operations will be also continued south of the Al-Rai-Tuzel axis.
