                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The battle was also known as the Raid of the Almighty by the rebel forces.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    It was also noted for the withdrawal of Syrian 17th Division forces who left mainly without a fight and then retreated west and east.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The rebel forces attacked the city from the north and east.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The city was guarded essentially at four checkpoints. The northern checkpoints were attacked first whilst the eastern checkpoint was abandoned when forces from the Muntasir Billah Brigade and al-Nusra Front approached.
