Turkey-backed Syrian opposition forces besieging Daesh-controlled Al-Bab have gained full control of the highway linking the town to Aleppo with intense ground and air fire support, the Turkish military said today. Three Turkish soldiers were killed in clashes near Al-Bab today, and around 20 Turkish soldiers have been killed in the course of “Operation Euphrates Shield”, launched nearly four months ago, to push Daesh militants and Kurdish militias away from the border. Eleven soldiers were wounded, one of them critically, and have been transported to hospital for treatment, the military said.
