According to a senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) forces have flooded the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District inside Aleppo City’s northeastern sector these last two weeks in order to prepare for the large-scale offensive to cutoff the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) between the Al-Safira Plains, the Deir Hafer Plains and the Al-Bab Plateau.

The goal of this large-scale offensive will be to link the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District with the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant that the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” are attempting to seize from the ISIS terrorists along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa (M-4 Highway) in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

While several Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba brigades are going to remain in southern and northern Aleppo; this new offensive will be specifically geared to accelerate the encirclement of the ISIS forces in the Al-Safira Plains, where the aforementioned terrorist group has launched several offensives in the past two years.

Joining Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba during this offensive will be the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Liwaa Al-Badr (Iraqi paramilitary), Liwaa Abu Fadl Al-Abbas (Iraqi paramilitary) and Kata’eb Hezbollah (Iraqi paramilitary).

If this offensive is ultimately successful in east Aleppo, then in the coming weeks, ISIS’ forces will be split apart along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.
