Four hours after the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces branch) lifted the three year long siege of the Kuweires Military Airport in east Aleppo, several hundred Iranian and Iraqi fighters arrived to this front in order to relieve the Syrian forces that spent the previous 34 days fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The large convoy of Iraqi and Iranian paramilitary units heading to the Kuweires Military Airport were kept secret from the Syrian Armed Forces; this was followed by the withdrawal of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and the Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) fighters after 34 grueling days of battle against ISIS in the Deir Hafer Plains of the Aleppo Governorate.

While the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and a small unit from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) remained at the Kuweires front; it has become evident that the Iranian and Iraqi paramilitary units are going to takeover the military operations in east Aleppo.

Since their arrival on Tuesday, the Iranian and Iraq paramilitary units have already captured two villages that are located to the west of the Kuweires Military Airport and they have defeated an ISIS force that was attempting to recapture the strategic town of Sheikh Ahmad.

According to a military source from the Aleppo Governorate, the paramilitary units transferred to this front are the following: Harakat Al-Nujaba, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and Kataeb Hezbollah; these groups have also been joined by the Lebanese resistance group “Hezbollah”.

Their objective will be to clear the entire western countryside of the Deir Hafer Plains and to secure the southern flank of the Al-Bab Plains.

they are no “paramilitary”, at least not the IRGC.
