"The Islamic State has been dealt a major symbolic blow in the battle for its existence. Turkish-backed rebels, reportedly supported by United States special forces, seized the Syrian town of Dabiq Sunday, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. According to Islamic prophecies central to the Islamic State's radical message, Dabiq is the site of an end-of-days battle that ushers in the apocalypse. Now, having lost control of the town, the Islamic State must scramble to change a narrative that has been a core part of its appeal." (10/16/16)
