The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are on a roll in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside as of late, seizing several villages and towns from the Islamist rebels that once firmly controlled this region in northern Syria.
With their defenses collapsing to the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah, the Islamist rebels have once again issued a distress call to their fellow allies from Jund Al-Aqsa (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) in the Hama Governorate; however, this Islamist group is currently engaged in their own battle with the Syrian Armed Forces near the strategic town of Morek.
Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi Paramilitary) – imposed full control over the hilltop village of Tal Dadeen after an intense battle 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.
According to a battlefield journalist that is embedded with the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies attacked the hilltop village of Tal Dadeen near the large town of Kafr Haddad, killing over 15 enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham; this ultimately resulted in the aforementioned Islamist groups withdrawal.
Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are pushing south towards the Idlib Governorate’s border, as the Islamist rebels struggle to maintain their ground.
