BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:07 P.M.) – After a month-long pause in Syrian Arab Army (SAA) operations against ISIS in Aleppo province, pro-government forces – led by the elite Tiger Forces  – are set to resume the offensive.

Military sources have confirmed that offensive units of the SAA, namely the Tiger Forces, backed up by various pro-government militias, will continue to purge ISIS in the countryside of Aleppo province with the ultimate aim of expelling the terrorist group from the entire region.

Having already cleared virtually all of the fertile steppe-lands of Deir Hafer (and the town itself) from ISIS militants, the SAA and its allies will now focus on dislodging the Daesh’s presence on the Maskanah Plains. If this is achieved, then pro-government forces will be able to link up with Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) lines in the area of Tabaqah, which is west of the city of ar-Raqqah.
