Islamic State Advances Further Into Syria's Aleppo Province

Monday, June 1, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Fierce battles between Islamic State and other fighters raged in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo on Monday, a day after the extremist group seized villages near the Turkish border and came within miles of the main highway connecting Aleppo, Syria's largest city, to Turkey, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Turkish officials expressed concern as Islamic State advanced to within 30 miles of Bab al-Salam, one of the main border crossings between Syria and Turkey.

Fighting sprawled along a 35-mile front line as various rebel forces worked to stop the progress of Islamic State, which is now just 7 miles from the main supply route from Turkey for aid and weapons to the rebel groups. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.wsj.com/articles/islamic-state-advances-further-into-syrias-aleppo-province-1433164287" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
