Moments ago, the  Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in coordination with the 2nd Division. the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – have reportedly entered the village of Humaymah Al-Kabeera in east Aleppo after an intense firefight with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at its western entrance this morning.

According to the preliminary battlefield reports from a military source in east Aleppo, the Tiger Forces and their allies have split up at the eastern countryside of the Kuweires Military Airport: the Tiger Forces and the 2nd Division have advanced east towards the ISIS stronghold of Deir Hafer, while another contingent from the 2nd Division and Hezbollah have advanced south towards ‘Aqlat ‘Aqulah.

The military source has added that the Syrian Armed Forces are currently engaged in a violent firefight with ISIS at the western sector of Humaymah Al-Kabeera; however, he was unable to provide any more details due to the ongoing operations.

Humaymah Al-Kabeera is strategically located to the east of the Kuweires Military Airport and to the west of the ISIS stronghold of Deir Hafir; this aforementioned city was considered untouchable two months ago, but now for the first time since 2012, the Syrian Armed Forces are advancing towards Deir Hafer.

It is still unclear whether or not the Syrian Armed Forces will push to the imperative city of Deir Hafer; however, as of right now, they are advancing towards it after entering Humaymah Al-Kabeera this morning.
