The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a large-scale offensive in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Thursday morning in order to recapture the territory they lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) over the span of 7 months.

However, minutes after ISIS launched this large-scale offensive in east Aleppo, they found themselves on the receiving end of a lethal ambush at Rasm Al-‘Alam near Tal Maksour.

The ISIS militants were struck by 4 Syrian attack helicopters and a barrage of missiles from the Syrian Arab Army.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces killed well over 30 ISIS terrorists, while also destroying 5 of their armored vehicles that were mounted with anti-aircraft machine guns.

ISIS’ attack in east Aleppo on Thursday marked the first time in nearly two months that any military activity has occurred in this region of the province.
