The Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces today continued their rapid advancement against ISIS by capturing 3 villages from the terrorist group in eastern Aleppo countryside.

The Syrian Army liberated the villages of Taiha, Halisiyah and Amoudiyah and are currently storming Um Mayal, which is expected to become ISIS-free within the day.

Meanwhile, Turkish-backed forces have attacked the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces-held towns and captured Kiridyah and Jablat Al-Hamra in south-west Manbij countryside from the militia.

Military sources in speaking with Al-Masdar News said that despite Turkish-led forces claiming that they captured Sukariyah Kabirah and Sukariyah Saghirahin, this is not true and the two towns are largely contested and empty from both sides.

Today the Syrian Army shelled turkish-led forces who tried to enter these towns, forcing them to retreat.

Both towns remain empty from the two competing armies.

The Turkish attacks against the SDF will complicate the fight against IS.
Since the SDF are forced to a two front war need to reinforce Manbij.

You never know with Erdogan. He can do it for purpose or without. He is clever manipulating nationalism and religious sentiments, but apart from that, his intelligence is limited. And he of course toyed with the idea of ISIS being a useful tool, but successful playing with a pet cobra requires mastery of a magic flute. Attacking Kurds is popular in important segments of his electorate, and he personally hates them as ingrates who were not awed by the paltry concessions he made to their rights. But if he goes against SAA, his troops will be bombed by Syrian air… Read more »

Erdolf wants Ottoman Empire V2.0 and is a shitlamist. Well, he’ll end with Sèvres treaty v2.0 and as all competent militaries are jailed in Turkey, no Atatürk to save the day… Well, I suppose that what will remain, about half the country, will be called Anatolia?
Make Constantinople Greek (great) again!

Tienes razón, SDF tendría que destinar mas hombres de Al-Raqa para el frente Manbij para enfrentar a mercenarios Turcos, quiere decir Erdogan estaría ayudando indirectamente a ISIS

IMHO the SDF cannot stop Raqqa. Raqqa is the SDF’s cash-cow for supplies. But the SDF can lever, relocate resources & let Raqqa simmer on little flammes. The SDF can complain that heavy gear like TOWS and mortars are needed for the assault of a big town. Plus they can sent green ethnic Arab troops to Raqqa and sent Kurdish veterans against Turkey.

p.s. Did You hear of such complaints and news lately?

SDF debe priorizar defensa de Siria, quiero decir destinar mas hombres a Manbij para enfrentar a los mercenarios Turcos y verá que EE.UU. no le gustará, por tanto presionara a Erdogan dejar de atacar a SDF en norte de Alepo.

It already worked when they left the Raqqa operation to take Manbij last year. Moreover, al-Bab is mostly a Kurdish town too so… And now, both Rojava can communicate through SAA held zone.
Erdogan go home!
