ALEPPO, SYRIA – A military source confirmed to Al-Masdar that units from the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces managed Ayosha Hill shortly after capturing the neighboring Ayosha village.

The source underscored the importance of this deed calling it a “strategic achievement” as it positions the Syrian Army to strike Al-Bab’s last line of defense at Tadef by cutting the terrorist group’s supply lines from Deir Hafer and Raqqa at Abu Jabbar Kabir village.

This assault surprised the Islamic State’s regional command as they expected the main focus of attack to be at Beerat Al-Bab from Touman and Aran villages. The Tiger Forces are notorious for their randomized attacks that disorient their foes and puncture their defenses.

As a result of the most recent advances, all ISIS positions south of Al-Bab are vulnerable and that is in spite of all the tunnels and trenches the insurgents dug to swamp the government forces’ advances. Al-Masdar’s source suggests that an ISIS counterattack on the imperative hill is highly expected due to its significance in protecting Al-Bab, Biza’a, and Qabbassin.

Notably, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to destroy eight VBIEDs in their Aleppo battles against the extremist group while their Turkish counterparts continue to incur heavy losses due to their lacking experience in such warfare.

Very good news : there is a kill zone, N NE and East of the hill. I hope artillery will be ready.

Al-Bab will be a copy-paste from the Aleppo offensive.

Una ves cercado ISIS, el ejercito Sirio debe asegurar sus defensas, esperar que ambos grupos mercenarios se exterminen entre ellos, hora de avanzar hacia el Este hasta alcanzar Río Eufrates.
