A large chunk of ISIS-held territory in northeastern Aleppo was cutoff from the Islamic State mainland moments ago as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated the town of Al-Khafsah in an ongoing blitz offensive in eastern Aleppo.

As predicted by Al-Masdar News two days ago, the town was the primary goal of the SAA offensive due to it holding the main water facility supplying Aleppo province with water.

Remarkably, a seasoned unit of the Tiger Forces are also storming the Al-Khafsah ‘Water Facility One’ which will likely be captured on Tuesday evening.

With Syrian government troops almost reaching Lake Assad for the first time since 2012, a pocket of some 15 ISIS-held villages is fully surrounded by the SAA and Kurdish forces.

During today’s operations, the SAA destroyed two ISIS car bombs and three technicals. Additionally, three ISIS drones fitted with bombs were downed in the area.

Meanwhile, ISIS fighters planted a large quantity of mines and IED’s (improvised explosive devices) around the Al-Khafsa Water Facility One in a bid to stall the government forces.

Once the ISIS-held pocket is eliminated, the Tiger Forces will turn their attention to Jirah Airbase and subsequently encircle the long-standing ISIS stronghold of Deir Hafer.

Notably, the Islamic State will not hold any territory in Aleppo province for the first time since 2013 if ISIS militants are expelled from the aforementioned areas.
