Clashes Erupt between Syrian Army, Turkey-Backed Terrorists near Al-Bab
Sham times news website reported that the army soldiers have been engaged in heavy fighting with forces of the Turkey-led Euphrates Shield Operation near the town of al-Bab on Sunday night.
Sham times added that regions between the town of Tadif that was captured by the Syrian army yesterday and the Southern outskirts of al-Bab have been witnessing a second round of fierce clashes between the army soldiers and Turkey-backed militants.
The clashes came after the army men managed to take control over the key town of Tadif South of al-Bab.
Reports said earlier today that the army men engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL North of the town of Qasr al-Brij and managed to drive the terrorists out of the towns of Nabateh al-Saqireh and Nabateh al-Kabireh.
ISIL suffered heavy casualties in the attack.
A field source said that the army men kicked off their attack on ISIL positions from the towns of Masriheh and Qasr al-Brij and from there they could hit terrorists’ defense lines and capture Nabateh al-Saqireh and Nabateh al-Kabireh.
The source added that the army soldiers are about to continue their operation and free the towns of Khirbet al-Zib, Ji’eh, al-Lawa, Jubb al-Sultan, Jubb al-Homam, Sakeriyeh al-Saqireh, Tafriheh al-Saqireh and Tafriheh al-Kabireh.
According to the source, the advances of the army and its allies are poised towards Kurdish positions. “The resistance forces are only 8km away from the Kurdish forces’ positions South of the town of Manbij.”
The newly-liberated town of Nabateh al-Saqireh is just 8km to the town of Houteh in Manbij area that is controlled by the Kurds.
