News agencies and accounts of political and media institutions have circulated today on social media a news item talking about the overtaking of “Baza’a” town by the opposition armed Syrian factions of the Euphrates Shield operation in the outskirt of Al-Bab city, east countryside of Aleppo. 

Verify-sy has contacted independent sources and other field actors belong to the Armed Syrian opposition checking the credibility of the above mentioned information. They have refuted the news confirming that the Euphrates Shield operation has managed to overtake some part of Baza’a before retreating from the village later.
