On Monday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – broke-through the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) frontline defenses at the strategic town of Sheikh Ahmad in the Deir Hafer Plains and imposed full control over this large area after a series of intense firefights this week.

According to a military source from the Tiger Forces in the city of Al-Safira, the Cheetah Forces and their allies are less than 2km away from lifting the two year long siege at the Kuweries Military Airport; if successful, this will be a devastating defeat for ISIS in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

The Cheetah Forces launched this large-scale offensive to lift the siege on the Kuweires Military Airport in early October; and since then, they have captured over 200 square kilometers of territory from the ISIS militants that were deeply entrenched along this volatile front.

The Kuweires Military Airport has been under a two year long siege that was imposed by ISIS; however, with the Cheetah Forces and their allies advancing to the southwestern perimeter of this large base, the siege is expected to end as soon as the pro-government forces break-through the terrorist group’s final line of defense.

Al-Masdar News has been informed that the Cheetah Forces are currently combatting ISIS along the military housing that sits outside of the base; they can be expected to lift the siege soon.

The soldiers in Kuwairas must be very causious, because the IS has plans to disguise themselves as SAA in Uniforms to get in Kuweiras to kill the besieged soldiers.
