220 artillery shells and 115 airstrikes landed on ISIS-held areas of eastern Aleppo on Monday in support of an ongoing Syrian Arab Army (SAA) offensive in the region.

According to a bulletin released by Amaq Agency, the majority of the SAA strikes targeted the villages of Tanouza, Jubb Al-Madi, Abou Hanaya, Al-Tabara and Al-Ma`moura.

The aforementioned villages are expected to be stormed by the SAA’s Tiger Forces shortly.

Meanwhile, ISIS relies primarily on suicide bombers and anti-tank crews to slow down government advances that ultimately look to encircle Deir Hafer and Jirah Air Base.


Should the SAA take control of Deir Hafer and Jirah Air Base, government forces are likely to restart their offensive towards Raqqa city, the Islamic State capital.

Amaq Agency, the official ISIS outlet, also published airstrike statistics yesterday revealing the ferocity of Russian and Syrian sorties in eastern Aleppo.

The Tiger Forces have made incredible progress in the last few weeks! Capturing Tadef, securing the outskirts of the Kuweires Airbase, and now are on the verge of taking the Jihar Air Base as well. The Tiger Forces and the SAA in general should not slow down and should continue to push ISIL out of the entirety of the Aleppo province. The SAA at Khanasir and the Tiger Forces at Jihar need to push towards Maskanah and liberate that as well. This, combined with the SAA pushing to As Sukhnah, should exhaust ISIL in both manpower and supplies.

And I also think that the arrival of Trump also helps in an indirect way as, as the Qaeda’s allies end with their main backer giving them the finger, serious pressure is relieved on Nusra side and actually, IS is less powerful than Nusra with US help…
