Earlier this morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah released footage from inside the village of Ahras after a night filled with intense firefights against the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham in the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside.

Prior to capturing Ahras this morning, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies imposed full control over the village of Misqan, which is located directly west of this Kurdish populated town in northern Aleppo.

Despite seizing Ahras today, the Syrian Armed Forces will likely concede this village to the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) in order to ease tensions and avoid future conflicts over its control.

However, the situation is not likely to be as mutually beneficial for the Islamist rebels, as they are facing a complete exodus from the northern Aleppo front.

With Tal Rifa’at and Mennagh Military Airport under their control, the YPG – backed by their allies from Jaysh Al-Thuwwar of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – will eventually threaten the rebel stronghold of ‘Azaz and the Bab Al-Salamiyah border-crossing into Turkey.

Turkey has warned the YPG about pressing to ‘Azaz; however, this will likely not stop the Kurdish forces from taking this city.
