Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 2nd Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps – captured the integral village of Kaskays in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside after a series of intense firefights with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to a battlefield journalist entrenched with the Syrian Arab Army’s 2nd Division in east Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over Kaskays at 10:30 A.M. (Damascus Time), resulting in ISIS’ complete withdrawal to the small village of ‘Aqlat ‘Aqulah; this aforementioned site is located directly south of Kaskays.

With the capture of Kaskays this morning and the village of Rasm Abboud yesterday, the Syrian Armed Forces have completely secured the Kuweires Military Airport’s southern perimeter; which, in turn, has resulted in the Syrian Armed Forces officially securing the entire airbase from the terrorist group that once besieged it for several years.

Following the capture of Kaskays, the Syrian Arab Army’s 2nd Division and their allies have now advanced to the village of ‘Aqlat ‘Aqulah, where they will attempt to push the ISIS terrorist further away from the Kuweires Military Airport.

The loss of the Kuweires Military Airport is just the beginning of their follies, as ISIS has suffered several defeats around Syria these last few weeks and it appears for the first time that they are spread too thin.
