Turkey deployed some 9,000-strong force to seize Al-Bab in Syria’s Aleppo province –
Since yesterday, Turkey-led forces have been continuing attemps to seize the key town of al-Bab from ISIS terrorist group in the Syrian province of Aleppo.
By now the Ankara regime and its jihadi puppets have not been able to achieve any gains in the area despite singificant forces deployed in the area.
According to local sources and official reports, Turkish forces involved in the al-Bab offensive consist of:
- Up to 8,000 pro-Turkey militants from various militant groups
- Up to 1,00 Turkish troops
- About 140 armored vehicles
- Over 35 artillery units
- Uknown number of heavy military equipment (at least 15 units)
On December 8, Turkey reportedly deployed 300 elite troops from the 11th Command Brigade that were allegedly set to participate in the offensive on al-Bab.
Experts believe that ISIS has about 3,000 fighters and 15 units of heavy military equipment in the area of Al-Bab. However, ISIS terrorists are much more motivated than their pro-Turkey counterparts.
The second day in a row pro-Turkey sources claim that the “opposition” is successfully advancing near al-Bab. Nonetheless, the situation on the ground clearly shows that they have not made significant gains and even not entered the town.
Clashes are ongoing.
