One month ago, the Syrian Arab Army's "Cheetah Forces" (Tiger Forces branch) began their arduous journey across the Deir Hafer Plains to lift the three year long siege imposed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the Kuweires Military Airport in the Aleppo Governorate's eastern countryside.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Cheetah Forces elite "Team 6 Brigade" - in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Kataebat Al-Ba'ath (Al-Ba'ath Battalions) - broke-through ISIS' final line of defense at the east Kuweires village and military housing in order to liberate the remaining area and lift this brutal three year long siege.

Over 300 soldiers trapped at the Kuweires Military Airport were greeted by the military personnel from the Cheetah Forces after they liberated east Kuweires village and the military housing; this jubilant event marked the conclusion of this saga.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army, the total number of casualties for the Syrian Armed Forces from this Kuweires Military Airport offensive was 57 soldiers, with another 200+ wounded-in-action (WIA) - ISIS' casualties could not be verified, but it is likely much higher than the Syrian Armed Forces' death toll.

With the liberation of the Kuweires Military Airport in the Deir Hafer Plains, the Cheetah Forces will be redeployed to the northern Hama front, where they are expected to help forestall the enemy advance and recapture the territory lost to the Islamist rebels.

Very good news, especially for those 300 besieged Syrian soldiers and their relatives, who probably might have lost every hope becuase the Kuweires airport looked like a lost game. We all hope that Syrian army and its allies will liberate soon their own country from the Islamist scum.

Yes, at last SAA can claim much needed success, it is good news, but the better news is that Cheetah forces will be deployed to Norhern Hama front, that is where focus should be, Aleppo area terrorists are not as strong as those in Norhern Hama and Idlib, SAA military focus should be Norhern Hama, Nothern Latakia and Idlib province that is where the most dangerous terrorists are being deployed by Turkey, Russian air group shoudl hit those terrorist hard, we expect more advanced weapons from Russia to be handed to SAA including flamwethrower rockets., if Northern Hama and Al… Read more »

I regret the deaths needed to secure this strategic point. If this base can now be used for Russian helicopter gun ships and drones, then the encirclement of Aleppo might be completed.
