On Saturday morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, and Kata’eb Hezbollah (Iraqi paramilitary) – imposed full control over the village of Baradah after a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham over the last 48 hours.

According to a battlefield journalist embedded with the SAA’s 4th Division, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies seized the village of Baradah after advancing from the recently captured hilltop village of Tal Al-Arba’een.

This advance has paved the way for the pro-government forces to progress further south towards the Idlib Governorate’s northern border, where the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham are deeply entrenched.

For the fourth consecutive day, Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, Hezbollah and their Iraqi allies have encountered fierce resistance from the Islamist rebels protecting the strategic hilltop village of Tal Bajer, which is situated to the south of the imperative town of Tal Al-‘Eiss.

Currently, clashes are ongoing between the pro-government forces and the Islamist rebels at Tal Bajer; if captured, the Syrian Armed Forces will be one village away from reversing all of the Islamist gains in the last two weeks.
