Over the last 72 hours inside the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” have advanced at a number of villages in the Al-Bab Plateau and the Deir Hafer Plains, seizing several sites from the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).
Earlier today, the Tiger Forces – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Kata’ebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – imposed full control over the village of Al-Si’in after violent battle with the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).
According to a battlefield correspondent that is embedded near the Kuweires Military Airport, the Tiger Forces and their allies seized Al-Si’in after launching a powerful assault from three axes around the recently captured town of Tal Maksoura, which is situated along three different roads that stretch to three different villages inside the Al-Bab Plateau.
Following the capture of Al-Si’in, the ISIS terrorists inside of Jubb Al-Kalb abandoned their positions and fled the village in order to evade the swarming Tiger Forces and to take the opportunity to utilize the last road leading out of the area before it was captured by the government forces.
Currently, the Tiger Forces and their allies are pushing west towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District of Aleppo City, which is separated by 13 km of ISIS controlled territory.
