Heavy clashes break out between Turkish-backed rebels and civilians in eastern Aleppo town
[MOBILE.ALMASDARNEWS] Heavy festivities broke out this even between Ottoman Turkish-backed rebel fighters and locals in the large town of al-Bab, opposition activists reported via social media.

According to the reports, the festivities broke out between armed civilians and Free Syrian Police after some dispute near the town center.

The reports added that several people have been injured since the festivities broke out in this eastern Aleppo town; furthermore, the situation in al-Bab remains very tense.

Al-Bab was captured by the Ottoman Turkish-backed rebels in 2016; it was previously under the control of the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) from 2014-2016.
