BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is rolling through the Islamic State’s (ISIL) final positions in the southeastern countryside of Aleppo, liberating several towns en route to the latter’s last stronghold in the province.

Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Islamic State’s last points north of Maskanah, attacking two towns and nearby silos from several axes.

Not long after launching this attack, the Tiger Forces were able to impose full control over the towns of Juday’ah Kabir and Juday’ah Sagheer, forcing the Islamic State to also ditch the Maskanah Silos as well.

With the capture of these sites, today, the Syrian Arab Army now has the key town of Maskanah surrounded from two different flanks; this means, the Islamic State will likely retreat south towards the Al-Raqqa Governorate border in the coming days

Excellent 🙂
Shell the north entry part of the city, so they can not sleep, for a couple of days 🙂
Then, the bullet party may start, and ISIS enjoy an enormeous f**k 🙂
