The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had another productive day in the eastern Aleppo countryside as the Tiger Forces unleashed a new wave of attacks on ISIS-held villages in the region.

Following up on the capture of Rasm al-Harmel al-Imam and Ma’azah yesterday, the SAA’s elite assault troops infiltrated and subsequently liberated the neighbouring village of Mazbourah after heavy firefights with ISIS militants on Wednesday morning.

Around a dozen jihadists were killed during the battle for Mazbourah.

Further operations are ongoing in the area and Colonel Suheil al-Hassan’s forces may very well capture new villages in the hours to come, a military source informed Al-Masdar News.

Strategically, the SAA’s offensive looks to gradually encircle the Islamic State bastion of Deir Hafer and cutoff the Turkish Army from plunging deeper into Aleppo province.

Some rumours also suggest the Tiger Forces have been tasked with striking rapidly eastwards, eventually reaching as far as the Euphrates River.

The rumors of a deep strike make sense since they’d keep IS on the move/off balance and seem classic Russian inspired strategy. IMHO.
