On Thursday night, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) renewed their offensive against the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) in northern Aleppo after a one month hiatus.

Surprising the Free Syrian Army and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah with powerful assault at night, ISIS stormed the Islamist rebels main base at the Aleppo Infantry Academy; this large facility is wedged between the terrorist group to north and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to the south.

The terrorist group took complete control of the Aleppo Infantry Academy this morning after they killed dozens of combatants from the Free Syrian Army and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah.

As a result of ISIS’ success on Friday morning, they have now moved their frontlines to the outer edges of the provincial capital, as both Jabhat Al-Shamiyah and the Free Syrian Army retreat southwest of the Aleppo Infantry School.

In addition to the capture of the Aleppo Infantry School, ISIS also took control of Tal Farah, Fafin, and Tal Sawsin after intense firefights with Jabhat Al-Shamiyah and the Free Syrian Army on Friday morning.

If ISIS captures the two villages of Babinis and Kafr Saghir, they will have the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District of Aleppo City surrounded from two sides (eastern and northern flanks).

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
