While Russia pounds ISIS to the Northwest, and America pounds ISIS to the East, the blood thirsty Mad Maxers surprised everyone by launching an assault to take Aleppo.

Islamic State group fighters advanced Friday on Syria’s second city Aleppo despite more than a week of Russian air strikes that Moscow says is aimed at routing the jihadists.
The jihadist gains came as regime forces, backed by Russian bombing and fighters from the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, intensified an offensive against rebels in the northwest, where IS is absent.
