The area running from Turkish border to Aleppo is very strategic. All belligerants are fighting and rebels maintain control over a tiny corridor ensuring Aleppo city supply. There are several fronts :
- The one opposing Rebels to IS on the East is very active, with IS pushing to take main rebels controlled towns : Mare, Suran, Azaz
- The one opposing SAA to Rebels is also very active with a besieged area (Nubl and Zahraa chiites towns) and North Aleppo city front where daily fighting is reported amid attempts by Loyalists to encircle Rebels areas in Aleppo city
- The one opposing YPG (kurds) to rebels and to Loyalists is calm. No fighting has been reported for months. YPG is making local alliances or cease fires according to its interests and agenda.
- The one opposing Loyalists to IS is calm although there are sometimes skirmishes or air strike
