Syria War 2017 – Heavy Clashes Between Turkish Backed Rebels And ISIS During The The Battle Of Al-Bab.

Video footage shows Turkish backed Syrian rebels in heavy clashes, fighting and firefights with ISIS during the battle for al-Bab.

The video shows Syrian rebels fighting with ISIS with the help of Turkish army Leopard II tanks and western weapons such as M4s, M16s and even SAW Machine guns.

Footage also features POV GoPro scenes of the Turkish backed rebels using those weapons in combat.

Turkey already claimed significant progress in the months-long battle to capture the Islamic State (ISIS) held Syrian town of Al-Bab.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Al-Bab was now “surrounded on all sides” and the town’s outer neighbourhoods were “under control”.

Al-Bab city, 30km south of Turkey’s southern border with Syria, is the Islamic State’s only remaining stronghold in northwest Syria.

In August 2016, Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield, an offensive aimed at expelling IS forces from Syrian territory along its southern border and fought by Ankara-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters. After a series of early victories, the operation, which involves Turkish special forces and airpower, has bogged down in fighting near al-Bab since November.

In mid-January, the regime’s Syrian Arab Army (SAA) joined the race to al-Bab in earnest, and has since advanced to a village roughly seven kilometers south of the city.

The fighting around al-Bab is some of the most complex anywhere in Syria. In addition to ongoing offensives by Turkish-backed troops and the regime army, airstrikes by Russia, Turkey and the US-led Coalition have pounded the city.
