The Islamic State continues to lose more ground in east Aleppo as government forces snatches more villages and towns from the terror group.

Today, the Syrian Army recaptured several villages around the ISIS-held Deir Hafer, following server battles with the jihadi fighters who suffered heavy losses.

Military sources reported that several tanks,  armored as well as machinegun-mounted vehicles have been destroyed during the clashes.

Four drones – 3 of which armed with explosives – have also been downed by the government forces.

The increasing pace of the advance made by the government forces will more likely make it hard for ISIS to maintain Deir Hafer. Analysts rule out the possibility of a full-scale ground invasion on ISIS bastion due to its high cost; a risk that the government forces cannot afford at this particular stage.

Nevertheless, ISIS fighters are desperately defending their position as the death cult lost large swathes of land in Syria and Iraq.

It will take only a matter of days or weeks to dislodge IS with minimal loss.

The SAA has so far avoided the traditionally high costs of the initial phases of the so called “deep battle plan”. So why should anyone expect full-scale ground invasion with heavy casualties on an ISIS bastion now?

p.s. The Russian deep operation battle plans of WW II were directed against skilled generals. The SAA has no such opposition.
