Free Syrian Army Enters Al-Bab from North, East with Turkish Army Support

Free Syrian Army militants entered the Syrian city of al-Bab in the Aleppo Province from North and East with the support of the Turkish army, according to the information received by Russian media from a source in the FSA.

The source said violent battles are currently taking place in al-Bab and ISIS (ISIL, IS, Daesh) militants are maintaining fierce resistance, Sputnik reported.

Militants blew up a car rigged with explosives, killing ten people.

Some more people sustained injuries and were rushed in critical condition to hospitals in the Turkish province of Gaziantep.

Street fights are still ongoing in al-Bab.

Al-Bab is one of ISIS' last remaining strongholds near the Turkish border.

Capturing the city is of strategic importance to Turkey in order to prevent the Syrian Kurds taking it and unifying their own territories.
