Syria conflict: IS 'ousted from symbolic town of Dabiq'

Syrian Rebel forces have recently captured the Syrian town of Dabiq from IS control with the help of Turkish military aid. The small town holds heavy symbolic value in the eyes of ISIS and is used very often in IS propaganda. According to the news source, Dabiq is supposed to host an "apocalyptic battle where a final battle between muslims and non-muslims takes place. Dabiq was defended by over 1,200 Islamic State soldiers which was overtaken by nearly 2,000 Syrian rebels as well as Turkish tanks and artillery.
