BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their swift advance in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Tuesday, liberating several sites from the exhausted Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists inside the Al-Bab Plateau.
Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army liberated the town of Ma’zulah and its corresponding hilltop of Tal Hawarah on Tuesday morning after advancing from the recently captured village of Uwayshia.
As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army is only 200 meters away from the Islamic State’s main supply route to the strategic town of Tadef.
While they managed to cutoff the supply route to Tadef by imposing fire control over this area, the Syrian Arab Army has yet to reach the road to this town.
Tadef is considered one of the most strategically important towns in the Al-Bab Plateau because of its proximity to the Islamic State’s stronghold; it is currently the primary target for the Syrian Arab Army.
