The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has fully withdrawn from Cobanbey, in the northwest Azaz town of Aleppo and Minnigh airport in the south of Azaz.

ISIL has moved towards Raqqa, Jarabulus and Al-Bab region of Aleppo, said Ahmad Mohamed Ali, a media official for the Syrian Local Coordination Committee (LCC).

Ali said that ISIL set fire to seven helicopters at the airport and carried tanks and trucks at the airport to Jarabulus region.

In addition, ISIL took medical equipment from all hospitals in Azaz to Raqqa and destroyed or carried all the materials which could be used by Free Syrian Army (FSA), he added.

ISIL is active in Syria’s eastern and northern regions and fights against both the Free Syrian Army and the Syria regime forces in a bid to establish their own sovereign state.

The Free Syrian Army main opposition group, along with the Al Nusra Front and the Syrian Islamic Front, initiated wide-ranging operations against the ISIL toward the end of 2013.
