Syrian rebels capture symbolic ISIS-held Dabiq town

ANI  |  Washington D.C. [United States] 

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has lost its control over a symbolic stronghold in North Syria.

According to the Turkish state media and a monitoring group, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), a Turkish-backed faction has taken back the town of Dabiq from ISIS.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based organisation has claimed that it received reports that groups of ISIS fighters had withdrawn from Dabiq overnight, reports the CNN.

The FSA operation will be continued for now as fighters seek to clear the town of mines, booby-traps and IEDs.

Dabiq is located about 10 km south of the Turkish-Syrian border and some Islamic prophecies consider it to be the site of an apocalyptic battle between Christians and Muslims.
