The Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces branch) and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) are rolling along the east Aleppo front after capturing over 40km of territory from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the last two weeks.

Unfortunately for ISIS, these last 14 days have been equivalent to hell for them, as they have conceded several villages and towns to the Syrian Armed Forces, while also sustaining heavy casualties and the loss of their heavy weaponry due to the Russian Air Force’s relentless airstrikes over the Deir Hafer Plains.

On Wednesday morning, the situation did not get any better for the terrorist group in the Deir Hafer Plains; instead, they got relatively worse, as the Cheetah Forces and the National Defense Forces entered the strategic town of Sheikh Ahmad, which is situated approximately 2km away from the Kuweires Military Airport.

Following their success at Sheikh Ahmad, the Cheetah Forces and the National Defense Forces finally took full control of Al-Halabiyah and Tayr Al-Ward after intense firefights with ISIS militants on Wednesday afternoon.

The Syrian Armed Forces are currently engaged in a fierce battle with ISIS at the town of Sheikh Ahmad; this is a crucial battle that will determine whether or not the pro-government forces will be able to lift the two year long siege imposed by ISIS at the Kuweires Military Airport.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
