It has been a huge week so far for the Syrian Armed Forces; and it appears that the success is only its beginning stages, as they continue to make several advances around the country.
Moments ago in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 43rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade) – imposed full control over the road leading from the strategic towns of Khan Al-Assal and Al-Rashiddeen.
The Syrian Armed Forces were able to secure the road this morning after a series of advances inside the 4th Precinct of Al-Rashiddeen last night.
As of now, the Syrian Armed Forces are in position to strike the imperative town of Khan Al-Assal; however, they are likely to hold-off for now, as they are still combatting the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki inside of Al-Rashiddeen.
The town of Khan Al-Assal was captured by the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Nusra in late 2013; once it was captured, the Islamists executed all of the captured Syrian Arab Army soldiers.
