The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) reportedly captured the village of Burj Al-Atshanah in the southeastern countryside of Aleppo on Friday after launching a large-scale offensive to recover the territory they lost in February to the Syrian government forces.

Yesterday, the terrorist group was able to impose full control over the Duraham Oil Field in southeast Aleppo after a violent battle with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); this paved the way for their successful assault on Friday morning in the Khanasser Plains.

Currently, ISIS is only 15 km east of the Khanasser Highway; if they continue to advance west, they will be able to cutoff the Syrian government’s only supply line to the Aleppo Governorate.

And again there wont be nothing from north Allepo offensive. SAA problem is because they do job only halfway. Offensive on AL Quaryatayn stops instead teaking mountain east from city to road 53 and 90. And month or two latey ISIS will be there again.
