The elite Tiger Forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their military operation in the eastern Aleppo countryside today, regaining control over A’alsah village, north of the imperative town of Deir Hafer.

According to an Al-Masdar reporter based in Aleppo, the government forces and their allies managed to eject ISIS militants from the village of A’alsah after fierce clashes.

This latest gain only serves to remind all parties concerned that the strategic initiative in the eastern Aleppo combat sector remains firmly in the hands of the pro-government forces. Despite the fact that the they have been campaigning for six weeks now, the Tiger Forces serving in the eastern Aleppo countryside show no sign of operational exhaustion.

At this rate it can be expected that the SAA will maintain the offensive against Daesh all the way to the latter’s strongholds of Deir Hafer and maybe even ar-Raqqah via the southern route.

Great advance – keep IS of balance & maybe recruit SFA help in exchange for cover from Turkish attack in a land swap near Mambij.
