North of Aleppo: fighting erupts between Syrian groups vs the Islamic State

Syrian groups fought against the Islamic State north of the city of Aleppo today, 10/7/2014.  There were fights around the town of Dabeq, a place that the Islamic State named their publication after.  The significance of this place comes from the Hadith that places a major battle between the Muslims and the ‘Rum.’  It is also the place that witnessed a battle when the Turks invaded Syria in 1516.
