Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Tiger Forces imposed full control over the town of Tadef after heavy clashes with ISIS insurgents on Sunday morning.

Tadef is located just one kilometer south of Al-Bab, a city in eastern Aleppo which Turkish-backed forces captured on Friday.

SAA artillery units and the Syrian Air Force heavily bombarded Tadef over the past week, thus paving the way for the Tiger Forces’ infantry to infiltrate the town.

Tens of ISIS militants were killed during the clashes. According to Al-Masdar News field correspondent Yusha Yuseef, government forces are now dismantling mines inside Tadef.

Effectively, the Tiger Forces have captured 16 villages from ISIS in eastern Aleppo over the past five days.

Is is not immediately clear if the Tiger Forces will initiate an assault on Al-Bab although they have been given the green light to do so by the SAA’s Military High Command.

It is not time to attack the Turkish mercenaries in al-Bab now.

Share the sentiment, but think it is advisable to tackle one adversary at a time.

That is what I implied. Not the right moment to fight.
A two front war must be avoided when possible..

Totally agree. ISIS first, the turks and their proxies later. Odd that the SDF have remained quiescent so far.

Yes. the Deir-Ezzur campaign gets them supplies and political support from the US.

IMHO they hope their US allies persuade the Sultan to leave them alone until they are finished with IS. That spares them a two front war with IS from the South and the Sultan’s forces from the North.

Pririty is to reach the lake Assad, cut the supply road to Deir Hafer and seize this city. To attack without an agrement with the kurds is an error.

Absolutely. Free the backs from IS, Qaeda & co. An agreement with the Kurds costs no more than some cultural and political federalism. A united Syria is in the interest of West Kurdistan and a common enemy unites.

Concuerdo con los comentarios, no es el momento, pero considero prioridad unir con SDF para cortar suministros a ISIS y también frenar el avance de mercenarios Turcos, ahora Erdogan tiene planes de atacar Manbij, si esto sucede de hecho que SDF destinará hombres para defender Manbij y restará hombres para la ofensiva en Al-Raqqa y Deir-Ezzur, en conclusión indirectamente el gobierno Turco estará prestando apoyo a ISIS.

I have to give a second to appreciate AlMasdar News and in particular their credibility. Last night, despite no other sources claiming so, AMN reported that the Syrian Army was fighting in Tadef. I saw no other sources claiming such and even saw the turks allegedly controlled it. However, the day after, it turns out AMN was the only one that was correct and all sources report Tadef is under full SAA control. I personally was thinking AMN could have published fake news but I’m glad their credibility upheld

Turks will get away after some 4000-5000 square km cleaned. Why are you so eager to kick them to their asses you haven’t been able to?

Kurds will stay there. Establish another state. Possibly unite with Barzani. Do you think leberated areas will be given to Assad in a golden case after IS been cleared? Assadists will lick their palms. You should worry about Kurds, not Turks.
