Aleppo, Syria – A military source informed Al-Masdar about the capture of the village of Ain Al-Jahsh after heavy clashes with Islamic State terrorists north of Kuweirus Airbase in Aleppo’s eastern countryside.

The advance comes less than 24 hours after the conquest of Madiounah village and its adjacent farms in addition to Al-Ma’moun College showing a consistent collapse in ISIS’s defenses around their largest Aleppo stronghold.

The elite Tiger Forces are now positioned at less than seven kilometers from the city of Tadef that represents the terror group’s last line of defense from Al-Bab.

Should the government troops continue their steady advance on Al-Bab, capturing the IS stronghold before the stagnating Turkish forces to the north may well be within reach.

Notably, the aforementioned city has proven to be a burden for the Euphrates Shield forces that have yet to enter the city after dozens of attempts. Turkish tanks and armored vehicles litter Al-Bab’s vicinity.

According to all the recent mappings, Tiger Forces seem to have adopted French Foreign Legion tactics! And they’re f*****g right to work this way : FFL usually cuts a ‘square’ on the map and well, they kill everything in as they really shoot a lotsa ammos, the use is to say that they shoot first and talk after… If Suleil Hassan patterned TF on the FFL, he was f*****g right to do so and it’s no surprise they’re so efficient.

I think the square is a mere coincidence. They are spearheading into this sector as ISIS hasn’t got the manpower to cut them off scissor style. The attack on Ain Al-Jahsh was obvious due to the fact the Tiger forces have got the high ground after the capture of Tal Mshrfah. A direct attack on Mshirfah wpould have been costly but now that this big obstacle is on the verge of being surrounded ISIS will pull out some of their troops. Furthermore it is now possible to attack it from three sides while having the high ground and this is… Read more »

Think You should add to You military skills, that ISIS are very clever using low wet or/and deep grounds as defence zones.

High ground is overestimated if You dont have the knowledge to use it. SAA and Tigers announced HIGH GROUND 999.999 times for fx 1070 appartments and even advance. But could THEY use it. No.

Bab, Qabasin & Bza are lowground defence and attackzones.

I agree with the remarks about legion way and cutting as well.
