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).
