BEIRUT, LEBANON 11:25 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) established full control over the Jirah Military Airbase in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was involved in heavy firefights with the Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization throughout the day at this strategic military installation before finally liberating it from the militants.
Unable to hold the airbase, the Islamic State finally conceded control of the installation to the Syrian Arab Army prior to withdrawing south to the Maskanah Plain.
With Jirah Airbase under their control, the Syrian Arab Army will now turn their attention to the Maskanah Plain, where they will look to expel ISIL from Aleppo once-and-for-all.
