Turkey-led forces (the Turkish Armed Forces and pro-Turkey militant groups) have launched a fresh attempt to retake the town of al-Bab from ISIS in the Syrian province of Aleppo.
Turkish forces are storming al-Bab from 3 directions:
- from the north
- from the northeast
- from the west
Meanwhile, the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (a shaky coalition of pro-Turkey militant groups) announced that its units had passed the administrative border of al-Bab. Local sources report intense artillery strikes in the area.
