As of recently, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has made significant gains in the direction of the Aleppo Infantry Academy, endangering the rebel-held section of the provincial capital, while they combat the Syrian Armed Forces inside the city’s parameters.

If ISIS is able to capture the Aleppo Infantry Academy, they will not only put the rebel-held section of the provincial capital in danger, but also, the large swath of territory under the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) control in the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District that is wedged between the terrorist group’s frontlines to the east and the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) to the west.

However, ISIS does not have an easy road to the Aleppo Infantry School; the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their allies from Jabhat Al-Shamiyah are poised to recapture their lost territory near the strategic city of Mar’e and push back the terrorist group towards the border-crossing at Jarabalus.

On Wedneday, the Free Syrian Army and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah launched a counter-offensive to reclaim their lost territory, beginning at Wahashiyeh near the city of Mar’e, where they combatted a large ISIS contingent entrenched inside this town.

Following a morning of intense firefights with the terrorist group, the Free Syrian Army and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah combatants were able to capture Wahashiyeh and force the remaining ISIS fighters to either surrender or withdraw from the town to the eastern countryside of Aleppo.

Assisting the rebel forces in northern Syria, the Anti-ISIS Coalition launched a series of airstrikes on the town of Qarah Qawzik near Menbeij, destroying a number of the terrorist group’s hideouts, while also obstructing the ISIS reinforcements from reaching their embattled comrades at this battlefront.
