On 15 February 2016 the rebels suffered another series of territorial losses at the hands of government forces and Syrian Kurds.
The Kurds took Tall Rifat – one of the three towns that had been remaining in the rebels’ hands in their northern enclave. They also took the village of Ayn Deqna.
The Assad’s forces took villages of Kafr Naseh and Ahras.
The northern enclave of the rebels is cut from the rest of the rebels’ territory and faces destruction. Turkey, however, has stated it will not allow the fall of the enclave’s most significant town of Azaz into the Kurdish hands.
