One week after losing Jabboul to the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces”, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) have imposed full control over the city and its surrounding hills, resulting in an advance to the nearby village of Al-Nasariyah inside the Deir Hafer Plains of east Aleppo.

With the capture of Jabboul, the terrorist group will attempt to recapture Al-Nasariyah, which is a village located directly east of the Syrian Arab Army’s starting point at Tal Na’am for the Kuweires Military Airport offensive.

While Jabboul City is under ISIS’ control, the Syrian Arab Army’s Cheetah Forces – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – have launched another assault on the town of Sheikh Ahmad, where they were confronted by a large force from the terrorist group this Monday.

The loss of Jabboul City is not going to the Syrian Arab Army from attempting to lift the two year long siege of the Kuweires Military Airport; however, it could endanger their imperative supply route if Tal Na’am is captured.

Currently, ISIS is bombarding the town of Al-Nasariyah with a barrage of mortar shells and rockets, but they have yet to infiltrate past the Syrian Arab Army’s defensive positions at the southeastern perimeter of the village.
