ISIL Terrorists Completely Besieged in Syria’s al-Bab
The ISIL terrorists group group was “completely besieged” in Al-Bab after Syrian army and allies cut off a road into the Takfiris’ last major stronghold in Aleppo province, a monitor said Monday.
“Al-Bab is now completely besieged by the regime from the south, and the Turkish forces and rebels from the east, north and west,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
It came after the government forces and its allies seized the only and last main road used by the terrorists between Al-Bab and Raqa,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP, referring to the Takfiris’ de facto capital in Syria.
The town of Al-Bab, 25 kilometers (15 miles) south of the border with Turkey, is seen as a prize by nearly all sides in the complex war.
The Syrian army has refocused on IILS since fully recapturing Aleppo city in December, in the biggest blow to the Takfiri terrorists who have been fighting to topple the government since 2011.
