Kom Podcast – Topic of the Week: Battle for al-Bab


Kom News editors Giran Ozcan, Josef Yusuf and Mehmet Aksoy discuss developments in northern Syria’s al-Bab town.

Occupied by the Islamic State group in 2014, the town is now being coveted by Turkey and Turkey-backed FSA groups, who have entered several neighbourhoods from the north and west, while the Syrian Arab Army and its affiliates converge from the south; the outcome in al-Bab looks like it will be a pivotal moment in the Syrian conflict.
