The U.S. backed Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) are facing a serious threat north of Aleppo City, as the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) have renewed their offensive at the imperative Aleppo Infantry Academy after a brief hiatus at this volatile front in northern Syria.

ISIS launched a powerful assault on the Islamist rebels’ defenses at the Aleppo Infantry Academy’s northern perimeter after they advanced further south as a result of their previous offensive in August that paved the way for their forces to attack the Jabhat Al-Shamiyah and Free Syrian Army’s positions at this strategic site.

If ISIS were to capture the Aleppo Infantry Academy from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Shamiyah and the Free Syrian Army; this will be a disaster for the U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition, as the terrorist group will have effectively expanded as far south as the provincial capital of the Aleppo Govenrorate.

Moreover, the Anti-ISIS Coalition’s failure to forestall the expansion of the terrorist group will now force the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to have to deter ISIS’ forces if they reach the provincial capital; this would benefit the Islamist rebels attacking west Aleppo because the Syrian Armed Forces are in control of the territory south of the Infantry Academy.
