Over the last 48 hours, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has attempted to recapture the villages of ‘Ayn Al-Bayda and ‘Ayishah in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside after conceding a large amount of territory to the Syrian Armed Forces two weeks ago.

ISIS began their assault on Thursday morning at the imperative village of ‘Ayishah, where they were confronted by a large force from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) at the northern flank.

The attack did not last very long, as the Tiger Forces – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – drove back the terrorist group towards the village of ‘Aran after a violent battle that ended with the ISIS militants abandoning their positions.

According to a battlefield journalist that is entrenched with the Tiger Forces in east Aleppo, the ISIS offensive inside the Al-Bab Plateau was completely repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces.

The source added that over 50 ISIS terrorists were killed during this two day long offensive that produced no gains in the northern countryside of the Kuweires Military Airport.

Last week a large convoy of reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army arrived in the Al-Safira Plains to replace the soldiers protecting the east Aleppo villages near the Kuweires Military Airport – a source has confirmed that the transfer of military duties have begun.

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.
