On Sunday morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces” continued their large-scale offensive inside the Deir Hafer Plains, targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) frontline defenses at the farms surrounding the Air Force Academy facility.
The Tiger Forces – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), Hezbollah, and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) – began their assault at the northern farms surrounding the Air Force Academy facility, capturing them after a violent firefight with the ISIS terrorists entrenched around them.
Following the capture of the northern farms, the Tiger Forces and their allies imposed full control over the Air Force Academy facility, killing over 20 enemy combatants from ISIS, while also seizing a tractor and 3 armored vehicles mounted with 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns.
With the Air Force Academy facility and the village of ‘Aqulah captured, the Tiger Forces and their allies are rolling through the rugged Deir Hafer Plains, while the enemy combatants from ISIS are retreating all over the eastern countryside of Aleppo.
Currently, the Tiger Forces and their allies are pushing towards the village of Humaymah Al-Kabeera (east of Kuweires) and Tal Al-Ahmar (south of Kuweires), where they have been confronted by a large ISIS force – clashes ongoing this morning.
