BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) is on the verge of being expelled from the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) closes-in on the terrorist group’s final pockets of resistance around the western bank of the Euphrates River.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army has liberated more than 100 villages in eastern Aleppo since January 13th; this has positioned them to strike the Islamic State’s last two strongholds in the province: Khafsa and Deir Hafer.

Suffering manpower shortages, the Islamic State finds themselves in poor position to defend both Deir Hafer and Khafsa, leaving them no choice but to flood many of the villages along the Al-Jar Canal that feeds in from Lake Assad in the east.

For the Syrian Arab Army, the flooding of the Deir Hafer Plain does very little to deter them from this military operation, which puts the Islamic State in an unfavorable position come Spring of this year.
