Aleppo, SANA – 17 members of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization were killed in fierce clashes with the popular units defending Ayn al-Arab city, northeast of Aleppo, according to local sources.
The locals said a car bomb exploded yesterday at the city’s northern crossing, on the border with Turkey. Following the explosion, ISIS terrorists launched several attacks and clashed with the popular defense units. The clashes have been ongoing since then.
