    Operation Euphrates Shield has begun attacking ISIS in Al Bab, which is probably the third biggest city ISIS controls after Mosul and Ar Raqqah.

    Euphrates Shield has been shelling Al Bab for weeks, and has now started advancing on the city.

    Away from their losing battles in Mosul and Al Bab, ISIS has started making a swift push into Assad's territory right about inbetween Damascus and Aleppo. Don't think Assad was expecting that.

    Iraqi forces have begun phase 2 of the Mosul operation. They liberated 40 neighborhoods from ISIS in phase 1. That livemap is lighting up with reports of clashes.

    Russia announced a ceasefire between Syrian forces and opposition groups (besides ISIS).

    Turkey had requested air support for their fight in Al Bab, but coalition forces had not provided them because Turkey advanced to Al Bab independently, and not on behalf of the coalition. Some reports of Russian air support in Al Bab today.

    Euphrates Shield forces have entered Al Bab again in a new push to capture it. Russian backed Assad forces have been capturing ISIS territory south of Al Bab.

    no better way to get people who hate you to "rally around" you and say you're "cracking down" and "tough" than bombing some brown people
