The Syrian Arab Army’s elite ‘Tiger Forces’ – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over Aleppo Thermal Power Plant after a fierce battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside,

Early this morning, the fearful, highly-trained commandos captured Umm Turaykiyah and Balat villages to the west of the Plant; thus beleaguering over 800 ISIS jihadis who have been fighting the government troops at the strategic city of Al-Safira and its nearby village of Tal ‘Aran.

The besieged 800 ISIS fighters are left with neither a loophole to escape from nor a supply route to fed with; hence – militarily speaking – options are scarce: surrender or die .

In a parallel context, the inhabitants of once the economical capital of Syria will now breath life as the Thermal Plant will be re-operated again, thus supplying them with the electrical power needed to lead a decent life after more than 2 years of a severe shortage of electrical power and water supplies.

As there are reports coming in that the pocket between Kuweires and Aleppo city has been closed for the ISIL-lot, I am somewhat inclined to believe that things are falling apart fast for the self-appointed kilafah in this area.

No, they already captured that power plant on wednesday. But they were counter-attacked by ISIS in the night and forced to abandon. So I can state, their news are really very accurate.

Syrian guys, you are Great heroes and excellent fighters!!! I pray for you. Win and survive!!

”the fearful, highly-trained commandos”
“”Fearful” is not the right english word,because ”fearful” means ”timid.coward,full of fear”.The right word is ”fearless”,that is ”without any fear”.Go on,keep up the good work!
