Khanaser map update 16-4-2016

The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) official media wing “Al-Amaq” reported that their forces captured 7 more villages in southeast Aleppo after advancing from the nearby Maskanah Plains on Thursday.

Al-Amaq did not name the villages they captured from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); however, they are once again near the Khanasser Highway that leads from the Hama Governorate to Aleppo City.

Earlier today, ISIS reported that they seized the village of Burj Al-‘Atshanah in the Khanasser Plains after a violent battle with the Syrian Armed Forces.

With ISIS quickly approaching the Khanasser Highway, the Syrian Armed Forces will have to mobilize more soldiers to help drive back the terrorist group.

The SAA can’t be everywhere. They have a few elite units like the Tigers and the Hawks, they are doing the right thing by completing the Aleppo operation first before responding to ISIS. So what if ISIS cuts the highway for a day or two? The SAA will drive them off and inflict losses. ISIS has already done this twice before and the SAA was able to continue to operate. If they immediately cancel operations to respond to any attack by ISIS then they would never get anything done because any group can launch a diversionary attack here and there.
