The current situation in Aleppo and that Turkish move into Syria

In Aleppo, the Syrian army backed by Hezbollah has moved to close the gap in their siege which was opened up by the militants around a fortnight ago. Supported by tanks, artillery and from the air, they have advanced to the artillery school and defeated a militant fightback which has cost them dearly. The video below shows the militant retreat after they failed to take Umm al-Qura hill.

Turkey has decided to clear the border of ISIS elements by sending in the troops to do just that. Funny enough, whilst the vast majority of victims of the suicide attack at the weekend wedding were Kurds, the Turks have decided to share their love by attacking them also.
