On Saturday morning, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another assault on the Kuweires Military Airbarse, marking the third this week that the terrorist group attempted to breach the Syrian Armed Forces’ defensive frontlines at this airport in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

The ISIS assault began around 8:30 A.M.(Damascus Time) on Saturday, when a wave of armed combatants stormed the southern entrance of the Kuweires Military Airbase, where they were confronted by a joint contingent of National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) guards that immediately opened-fire on the encroaching militants.

The first wave of ISIS fighters were repelled by the SAA and NDF guards at the southern perimeter of the Kuweires Airbase; however, it did not take long for ISIS to send another wave of their armed combatants towards the southern entrance of the airport.

Unfortunately for ISIS, their second assault at the Kuweires Military Airport on Saturday afternoon achieved the same results as their previous one; however, the second round of their attack concluded with more casualties and little progress.

All-in-all, the ISIS assault on the Kuweires Military Airbase achieved very little progress for the terrorist and ended with a high number of casualties.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the aggregated death toll from the ISIS assault on the Kuweires Military base was estimated between 30-45 combatants, with some estimations as high as 60 militants dead.
