Just 24 hours after launching their large-scale offensive in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, the Syrian Al-Qaeda groups “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and “Jund Al-Aqsa” abandoned their posts outside of Tal Al-‘Eiss, resulting in another victory for the Syrian Armed Forces.

Preliminary reports from the Syrian Opposition’s social media activists indicated that Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jund Al-Aqsa captured Tal Al-‘Eiss from the government forces; however, several sources from the Syrian Arab Army in Aleppo confirmed that this hilltop village never fell to the extremist rebels.

The military personnel that were tasked with protecting Tal Al-‘Eiss were from the National Defense Forces (NDF), Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), Liwaa Al-Badr (Iraqi paramilitary), and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalion).

As a result of the mass retreat by the Al-Qaeda factions from the western perimeter of Tal Al-‘Eiss, the government forces were able to regain control of the hilltops that are located to the north of Banes; this includes Tal SyriaTel.

The death toll for the Al-Qaeda factions is currently unknown.

With Banes and Tal Al-‘Eiss secured; it is only a matter of time before the government forces continue their offensive in southern Aleppo after taking a long hiatus to concentrate on the northern countryside of this large province.
