The Syrian Arab Army’s special operations contingent known as the “Tiger Forces” have finally arrived at the city of Al-Safira in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside after a short stint in the Al-Sha’ar an Jazal Mountains of east Homs.

Led by Colonel Soheil Al-Hassan (AKA: “Al-Nimr” or “tiger” in English), the Tiger Forces are set to begin their new offensive to lift the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) brutal two year long siege of the Kuweires Military Airport in east Aleppo.

However, the SAA’s Tiger Forces will face-off against ISIS inside an area of east Aleppo that is firmly under the control of the terrorist group; this will likely result in a bloody battle for control of this territory in the Jabboul Lake region of the province.

For the Tiger Forces, their brigade will split-up: as a contingent will remain on the east Homs front, under the command of Captain Lu’ayy Sleitan; while the other contingent begins this new offensive in east Aleppo, under the command of Soheil Al-Hassan.

Not only is the liberation of Kuweires Military Airport important, but also, the security of the main supply route for the Syrian Government on the Khanasser Highway; if lost, the Syrian Armed Forces will be without a direct supply line to the provincial capital.

The Kuweires Military Airport’s proximity to the terrorist group’s stronghold at Deir Hafer makes this a vital military endeavor for the Syrian Armed Forces; this city is the headquarters for ISIS in east Aleppo.
