Aleppo, Syria (8:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a new assault in the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate on Wednesday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses just north of the Kuweires Military Airport.

ISIS began their assault by firing several ATGMs (Anti-Tank Guided Missile) at Syrian Army checkpoints near the village of Nasrallah, causing severe damage to these small military installations.

Following the missile strikes, the Islamic State terrorists stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the eastern flank of Nasrallah village, resulting in a fierce series of clashes that are still ongoing at the moment.

If ISIS is successful in capturing Nasrallah village, they will be within striking distance of the strategic Kuweires Military Airport, which could result in the obstruction of the government supply route along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

Again, they just routed them 2 days ago. Wouldnt they have been on high alert? They never heard of scouts, air recon or buffer zones?? How is any movement not noticed a while before giving ample time for SAA to form defenses and group up? It’s always like ISIS is present at a key site immediately, like teleportation. Either most ME armies suck, or they never learn, or they are just spread that thin and badly in need of reinforcements.

Syrian army have everything but nobody knows which equipment isis have, because their are supported by west. they could have full satelite information about poisitions of Syrian army. Aleppo is key city and losing Aleppo is loss for that bastards. That´s why un ( managed by us ) accusing Russian and Syrian bombing, using arranged fake of little boy from ruins and wants pause. The one way is total bombing them because ceasefire will allow regroup them .

ATGM’s target you from 4 km away, or more. You cannot see that far. Secondly, is just withdrew from Manbij and now from Jarablus; that is probably;y 2,000 fighters. Unless heavy air strikes occur, they will likely have upper hand. It is all about numbers of men.

A missed leading headline, they attack the Syrian Army defences, that isn’t really storming the base as stated in the headline, which more suggested the Syrian army was routed and ISIS is in control of the airbase.

You misuse the word “storm” when you mean simply “attack”. Storm implies successful attack & base is lost.
You do that a lot.
