The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is now pushing south towards the Aleppo Infantry Academy after the militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) mistakenly concentrated their forces to the northern part of Aleppo City in order to combat the Syrian Armed Forces.

If ISIS is able to reach the Aleppo Infantry Academy, they will have access to the northern sector of the provincial capital; this is an area that the terrorist group has struggled to enter since the inception of their fight inside the Aleppo Governorate.

For the Free Syrian Army and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, the loss of the Aleppo Infantry Academy could result in a catastrophe for their forces, as this area has been utilized as a base for the rebel forces and a large barrier that to obstruct the Syrian Armed Forces’ route to the northern countryside or Aleppo.

Meanwhile, north of the Aleppo Infantry Academy, the terrorist group is still targeting the imperative rebel stronghold of Mar’e after entering the city last week.

While Mar’e is a rebel stronghold, the city itself is the gateway to the ‘Azaz border-crossing into Turkey, which is used as the primary supply line for the rebel forces in the Aleppo Governorate.
