The battle for the strategic hilltop town of Tal Al-‘Eiss has been widely misreported on Wednesday due to the lack of ground resources at this front.
Al-Masdar News reached out to a soldier from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in order to get an accurate account of the ground situation in southern Aleppo today.
The IRGC soldier denied the reports that the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies imposed full control over Tal Al-‘Eiss.
He added that the no ground forces stormed the area, despite early reports from pro-government social media accounts that asserted Tal Al-‘Eiss was under Syrian Arab Army control.
Furthermore, the reports that the extremist rebels retreated from Tal Al-‘Eiss on Wednesday were true; however, they temporarily left after heavy shelling from Hezbollah and the IRGC.
As of now, the strategic hilltop town of Tal Al-‘Eiss is not under the control of the pro-government forces.
We, at Al-Masdar News, apologize for the publishing mistake regarding Tal Al-‘Eiss; this latest report has been confirmed by IRGC personnel at the front.
