Turkey-backed FSA attacks Daish-held Dabiq

The Turkish army backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) began an attack on the Daish held village of Dabiq in northwestern Syria on Saturday, an opposition commander involved in the campaign and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

However, Turkish military sources said the operation to take Dabiq had started earlier this month and that while air and artillery strikes were targeting the village, there were no new developments on the ground on Saturday.

Dabiq is crucial for Daish as it believes that the town is sacred and a doomsday war will one day be fought there with “infidels.” According to the FSA, Daish terrorists will be devastated once the town has been captured.
