The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and several Iraqi and  Iranian paramilitary units – imposed full control over two villages this morning after a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham.

According to a battlefield journalist traveling with the SAA’s 4th Mechanized Division in Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance captured the village of Musharfah Al-Murayj after losing it last week to the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki.

Following their capture of Musharfah Al-Murayj, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance advanced to the strategic village of Tal Al-Arba’een, where they were confronted by a large contingent of Islamist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham; this resulted in a series of intense firefights on Thursday morning.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance would impose full control over Tal Al-Arba’een after Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s frontline defenses crumbled, leaving the pro-government forces a clear pathway to the village center.

Both Tal Al-Arba’een and Musharfah Al-Murayj are important to the Syrian Armed Forces due to their proximity to the rebel stronghold of Al-Hadher.
