BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is on a roll, today, liberating a large chunk of territory in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by advancing southeast of the Tal Hassan Quarries, capturing two villages from the Islamic State (ISIL), including Jirah Kabir.

Following their advance this afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army stormed a number of small villages in the Maskanah Plain, killing and wounding several Islamic State terrorists.

According to a military source in east Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army captured the villages of Al-Khalidiyah, Al-Mazyounah, Umm Nasourah, Jubb ‘Ali, Khirbat Hassan, Attirah, Al-Nafiyah, Al-Sukkariyah, and Tal Hassan.

With today’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army is now within striking distance of the town of Maskanak for the first time in four years.

Reports say at least 14 dead Tigrs KIA, incl 2 commanders, over 40 wounded. They took over significant ground; but….

When you see images of Tigers, you see no body armor; no dedicated sniper rifles, no mini uav’s, no ISR equipment, no night vision for most. Their personal equipment is just like what the ndf has. For one of the top offensive formations, that is shayt, especially as there no more than about 1,500 Tigrs

Looks like ISIS put everything in the shop window between Qaysumah and Jirah airbase, and when those went everything fell apart for them. It’s kind of like the situation they were in defending the line between Deir Hafer and Al Bab, collapse after that line got penetrated and Al Bab outflanked. Maskaneh increasingly looks like a non-viable position between the Tiger Force hammer and the SDF anvil.

I suggest including a link to http://syriancivilwarmap.com/ for articles such as this.
