BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:42 P.M.) – The elite Tiger Forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed up by heavy artillery and airpower, continue to purge ISIS terrorists from the countryside of eastern Aleppo, liberating more ground today en-route to the strategic town of Maskanah.
The two most recent sites which have been liberated include the village of Al-Samlajiyah and the Al-Khuzaim fuel station. Both sites are located south of Al-Mazyounah along the Aleppo-Raqqa highway.
Clashes for both sites had been ongoing since early this morning. In securing both objectives, the Tiger Forces are reported to have killed at least twenty (20) ISIS terrorists.
With this most recent success, the Tiger Forces are now only around ten kilometers north of the town of Maskanah, the last ISIS stronghold in Aleppo province.
