Islamic State fighters re-entered the village of Serhan, located a few kilometers south of the strategic city of Al-Bab in northeast Aleppo, only one day after being recaptured by the Syrian government forces.

ISIS large-scale offensive was launched this morning by sending three VBIEDs to the Army positions inside the small village, which serves as one of the last defense lines for the terror group in the area.

The first VBIED was prematurely detonated by the Syrian Army. However, the intensity of clashes forced the government troops to retreat, thus saving the lives of much-needed soldiers.

A military source told AMN that the Syrian Army has already began shelling ISIS militants inside Serhan.

Throughout its recent push toward Al-Bab, the government forces attempts to recapture Aran, the last ISIS-held town before Tadef, which is just in the southern outskirt of Al-Bab.

Tactical retreat. Better do it than having useless losses.

ISIS no tiene mucha opción en la zona, por tanto buena estrategia, el ejercito Sirio debe avanzar hacia el Este hasta el río Eufrates para cortar suministros.
