DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:45 A.M.) – Not so long before the official announcement of complete liberation of Maskanah town in eastern Aleppo countryside, the official YouTube channel of National Defense Forces (NDF) published a 10-minute-long video footage depicting the last 7 days of battles in the region.
Over the course of these days, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) led by its elite Tiger Forces division managed to recapture 22 villages eliminating more than 1,200 militants of the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS).
In addition to that, around 100 vehicles, including tanks, IFVs and pickup trucks were destroyed in the process.
Video shows SAA heavily shelling IS positions and storming villages held by jihadists. Besides, drone footage of airstrikes on IS positions is also present in the video:
