BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) is having a rough day in east Aleppo, giving up several sites to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies near the strategic city of Deir Hafer.

According to Al-Masdar’s northern Syria correspondent, Yusha Yuseef, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” advanced north of the recently liberated village of Rasm Al-Hermel Al-Khabaz to strike nearby Rasm Al-Sheikh.

Not long after striking the southern perimeter of Rasm Al-Sheikh, the Syrian Arab Army broke-through the Islamic State’s front-lines and forced the latter to retreat southeast of the village.

As of 2:30 P.M. (Damascus Time), the Syrian Arab Army is in full control of two more villages located north of the Islamic State’s stronghold of Deir Hafer.

With their gains earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army has imposed fire control over Deir Hafer, as their forces have secured three axes around the city.

I think SAA leadership made a huge mistake to pause Tiger Forces advance by 72 hours! ISIS finally got it, they are investing more and more resources into defending Al-Bab from Turkish led forces while SAA tried (sneakingly) to capture Deir-Hafer and reach west bank of Euphrates thus preventing FSA to move further down south to Raqqa. Now that ISIS and Turks made the deal to surrender Al-Bab (and I also think all villages around it) FSA will storm down south-east and SAA will have to hurry to block them! If I would be among general staff of SAA I… Read more »

As you probably know right now Russians are leading SAA what to attack and what not to attack. Bad thing is Russians are slow most of the times (as the history proves it) with any war. However, even they are slow, they always finish the war beating up the enemy really badly (even they loose here and there a battle). So, even they make a few mistakes, believe me, as long as Russians are there, SAA will kick out every single terrorist from Syria, including Turks. Just give them a little bit more time… read all the wars that Russians… Read more »
