The President assures that the full liberation of the city – just a matter of time.
Turkish troops and allied units of the Syrian rebels occupied the center of the town of al-Bab, which is considered a stronghold of the group “Islamic state”.
According to him, the complete capture of the city – it is only a matter of time. “Al-Bab, surrounded now on all sides… Our forces have entered the city center, along with Syrian rebels,” – said Erdogan.
According to him, the power of the Islamists of ISIS depart from the city.
The city of al-Bab serves as the last stronghold of the ISIS in Aleppo province in Northern Syria. The attack on him from the South-West leads the Syrian army.
The battle for the city, which is only 30 km from the border with Turkey, began on 24 August last year, when Turkey started an operation under the code name “Shield of the Euphrates”.
