Islamic State militants are playing defense --- trying to hold on to several villages they've seized in northern Aleppo Province even as Ahrar Al-Sham rebels move in.
In Sandaf, rebels went from house to house, while others took up positions all around the perimeter. When an Islamic State fighter passes by on a motorcycle, rebels waste no time (BANG BANG), according to this video posted to a social media website.
In this slow motion video, the motorcycle can be seen crossing a field in the distance before it's destroyed.
With the U.S. and Turkey saying they plan to open up a new front against IS in Sandaf, rebels risk losing critical ground if they can't regain control of the village soon.
