BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – In an avalanche of major advances throughout Aleppo province’s southern countryside over the last four days, the Syrian Arab Army and allied pro-government militias have chased armed Islamist groups from virtually the entire region.

Syrian army-led forces have swept armed rebel factions from southern Aleppo like a specter, blitzing through anywhere between 20 to 30 towns and villages per day in fashion that saw them constantly showing up in unexpected places and attacking via unexpected axes.

The main geographical feature of southern Aleppo is the Al-Hass plateau and to this effect the entire upland region – running from As-Safriah to Al-Ramlah and Tal ad-Daman to Khanasser – has been seized by pro-government forces in one hundred hours of campaigning.

With the rump of southern Aleppo now under the control of the Syrian Army including the important crossroad town of Tal ad-Daman, it is expected that soon enough the final advance will commence to link with other army forces battling it out against jihadist factions in eastern Idlib province – a journey no greater than three kilometers at the shortest point.
