The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” made remarkable progress in the Khanasser Plains on Thursday, capturing one town, two villages, and four hilltops from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) en route to recovering most of their lost territory.

The Tiger Forces and their allies began the day by liberating Khanasser from the ISIS terrorists after entering this strategic town the night prior to the final push on Thursday morning.

With Khanasser under their control, the Tiger Forces and their allies turned their attention north towards the small village of Al-Mughayrat.

Following a violent battle, the Tiger Forces and their allies imposed full control over Al-Mughayrat and 3 surrounding hilltops that were located just north of this small villages in southeast Aleppo.

The Tiger Forces would then capture the large hilltop of Talat Al-Bayda along the road to the imperative village of Al-Hawaz; this battle did not last more than 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in the Khanasser Plains’ northern countryside, the Tiger Forces – backed by Liwaa Al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – established full control over the strategic village of Shilallah Al-Kabeera, killing over 15 enemy combatants and destroying 3 armored vehicles that were mounted with 14.5 mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

To conclude the day, the Tiger Forces and their allies reached the villages of Al-Hawaz and Shilallah Al-Saghira, staking their positions for another assault tomorrow morning.

Currently, the Tiger Forces are focused on closing the gap between the Al-Safira Plains and the Khanasser Plains; once this is complete, they will concentrate on the Sheikh Hilal-Ithriyah Road that is also cutoff.

ISIS death toll only 140 on open fields? Then SAA will not win against ISIS.
