A half hour after the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) and their allies reportedly seized the rebel stronghold of Tal Rifa’at in northern Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the Republican Guard – alongside Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and several Iraqi paramilitary units – entered the village of Misqan after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

The village of Misqan is located directly south of Kafr Nisah, which is considered the last site before reaching the rebel stronghold of Tal Rifa’at in the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside.

According to a military source inside the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are in control of 50 percent of Misqan village and still advancing north.
