Following the Tiger Forces’ recent advances on the Castillo road that had them effectively cut the rebel supply route linking eastern Aleppo’s neighborhoods to Idlib and Turkey, the Kurdish SDF units launched a surprise attack on the Youth Housing Complex.

If the offensive bears fruit and the Kurds do indeed seize the area, they would link up with the SAA’s Tiger Forces on the other side of the imperative highway thereby enforcing the siege of the rebel held eastern Aleppo. Opposition forces and allied jihadists now find themselves in a desperate situation with their forces overstretched, manpower lacking, and increasing tensions as different leaders and militant factions accuse each other of treason.

To widen their wounds, the Syrian Army also launched a massive offensive in Latakia aimed at expelling the jihadists from the province.

Below is a map detailing the most recent advances by the elite Tiger Forces according to a rebel activist.

benefits Kurds to keep jihadists out of that zone. SAA need to make peace with Kurds there.

Kurds are not warring SAA, basicly, they are neutral to govt forces, so no need to make peace. Sometimes there are just little clashes between kurdish police and paramilitary NDF.
Anyway, the pincher movement took forever. Now they will have to be very carefull because of double side offensive risk.

The right expression is “to be in dire straits”, like the name of the famous Knopfler’s band, not “dire state” 😉
