Moments ago in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, the Islamist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham – in coordination with Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham – have launched a counter-offensive at the strategic town of Tal Al-‘Eiss in order to reverse the gains made by the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah last week.

The Islamist rebels chose to launch this counter-offensive tonight after several hundred fighters arrived from the Idlib Governorate in order to reinforce their embattled comrades that were under attack by the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance for several weeks at the southern Aleppo front.

The goal for this counter-offensive is to recapture Tal Al-‘Eiss from the Syrian Armed Forces and the Lebanese Resistance, followed by repositioning themselves for a massive counter-assault at the strategic city of Al-Hadher (east of Tal Al-‘Eiss), which was seized by the SAA’s 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah two weeks ago.

This will be no easy task for the Islamist forces of Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jabhat Al-Nusra, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham as the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are heavily entrenched inside these two towns (Al-Hadher and Tal Al-‘Eiss) in the Aleppo Governorate.

There have been no reported gains as of yet – more to come….
