Thanks to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has had another horrible week in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside as they continue their massive retreat from the Deir Hafer Plains.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 2nd Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary unit), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City – struck ISIS’ defensive positions inside the contested village of Rasm ‘Abboud, killing several enemy combatants from the aforementioned terrorist group in the process of this assault.

Following a series of intense firefights with ISIS, the Syrian Arab Army’s 2nd Division and their allies imposed full control over Rasm ‘Abboud; this resulted in a complete withdrawal of the terrorist group’s fighters to the village of Nasrallah, where they were followed by the pro-government forces.

Last week, ISIS was able to reclaim the northern sector of Rasm ‘Abboud; however, they were unable to withstand the powerful  assault from the Syrian Armed Forces on Sunday, leaving them in trouble as the pro-government forces push deeper in the ISIS heartland.

Rasm ‘Abboud is strategically located at the Kuweires Military Airport; it is also situated to the north of ISIS’ main supply route along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

In addition to their success at Rasm ‘Abboud, the Syrian Armed Forces have imposed full control over the Sisako Factory after a fierce firefight with ISIS near the imperative Aleppo Thermal Plant, which is also situated along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.
