The Syrian Army resumed it military campaign in Aleppo eastern countryside, recapturing three more villages from the Islamic State terror group.

The recent advance comes a few hours after the government troops sized a batch of villages early morning, thus reaching out to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the far north and besieging ISIS militants in a small geographical area.

Meanwhile, Euphrates Shield forces expelled Islamic State fighters from several villages located to the east of the northern Syrian city of Al Bab.

Up to five villages have been captured today by the Turkish-backed rebels following fierce clashes with the already-encircled ISIS jihadists.

Unformed reports claimed that light firefights erupted between the advancing Syrian troop and the Kurdish forces without further details. AMN hasn’t been able to verify this claim.

Light firefights do not matter. And it means they finally linked up.

p.s. Prussians and Brits also shot at each other before they together gave Napoleon’s forces a licking at Waterloo.

Assad must stay

Now it will be interesting : what will Erdogullum do ❓
– attack SAA to reach the lake Assad
– attack SDF to get Manjib
Wait and see. Wait only a little couple of days.

Make a poll?

– attack SDF to get Manjib

Reason: The gear the Turks bring to the border currently is too light to fight the SAA effectively.

It is a big mistake IMHO to trust kurdish militias. Remember what they did in Hasaka in 2016. The best is to ignore them atm without allying with them

Well, it wasn’t SDF vs SAA, it was the Kurdish police that clashed with NDF (local militia) and I’d prefer not to bet on who began but there were previous cases in several areas where it’s clear thet it wasn’t Hasayish that lit the fire 😉

I’m sorry, but this article is full of terrible grammar and spelling errors.

“resumed it military campaign”
“sized a batch of villages”
“Unformed reports”

Has anyone spellchecked this article? I appreciate the information but the bad spelling and grammar errors are exceedingly unprofessional. If you ever need to hire someone to do this shoot me an email lol
