Damascus, 26 Dec 2016  : At least 30 civilians who made an attempt to escape from Syria’s al-Bab were killed by the Islamic State militant group, Turkish military said on Monday.

The IS has been threatening civilians in al-Bab and trying to push them to stay in the city where the roads and streets have been blocked by the terror group, Xinhua news agency reported.

Meanwhile, a Turkish soldier who was injured in al-Bab during a clash with the IS, died on Monday.

At least 16 Turkish soldiers were killed in an IS attack on December 21 in al-Bab as Turkish troops and Ankara-backed Syrian rebels battle to take the town from jihadists, Turkish Defence Minister Fikri Isik said.
