"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

ISIS retakes Syrian town, militants threaten truce- Al-Arabiya

ISIS has retaken a northern town along Syria’s border with Turkey just days after losing it to rebel forces and allied militants, Syrian activists said Monday as UN envoy to Syria stressed on the importance of maintaining cessation of hostilities with the Syrian foreign minister.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Aleppo Today TV station say the ISIS extremists captured al-Rai early on Monday morning after intense fighting for the frontier town.
Al-Rai is strategically located on the border with Turkey, serving as the ISIS’s access point to supply lines. It also sits along the road to the ISIS stronghold in Aleppo province.
ISIS lost the town on Thursday after an offensive by rebels and militant groups allied with them, including al-Qaeda's branch in Syria known as the Nusra Front.
