As a result of the explosion of mines planted by ISIS terrorists, Al-Bab’s residents continue to suffer. It is reported that 15 people died last week trying to leave the city.
Moreover, the terrorists use civilians as human shields, which leads to a large number of civilian casualties. According to some activists, over past three days, the number of killed residents reached about 30 people.
Currently, within the ‘Euphrates Shield’ operation conducted by the Turkish armed forces, some Syrian opposition factions have launched an offensive on the city of Al-Bab with the support of the Turkish artillery and aviation. It is reported that Islamic State is trying to repulse the attack with TOW.
