Pro-Turkish militant groups and the Turkish Army are losing ground under the pressure from ISIS terrorists in the city of al-Bab in northern Syria. According to available data, Turkish forces have been pushed to retreat from the al-Bab roundabout between al-Bab and Tadef, and now are clashing with ISIS east of the Youth Housing and the Al-Bab silos.
Meanwhile, tensions between Turkish forces and Kurdish YPG units escalated in the areas of Willa Qadi, Maranaz and Kafr Khashir. Pro-Turkish militants attacked YPG units and a car bomb explosion was reported in Maranaz.
The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces, have liberated the villages of Bijan, Tal Bijan and Mashrafah from ISIS terrorists southeast of the Kuweires Airbase.
200 members of the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) have been killed or injured during clashes in the Syrian city of Daraa, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria. In turn, pro-militant sources claim that up to 100 pro-government fighters were killed in the area.
The situation in the city of Daraa remains tense amid victorious reports from both sides. However, it’s clear that the militant offensive has stalled.
