On Friday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces Unit) – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – surprised the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) with a powerful assault on their stronghold at Jabboul City in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside, killing a confirmed 26 enemy combatants and destroying 4 armored vehicles mounted with a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun.

In order to enter this ISIS stronghold, the Cheetah Forces needed sufficient air cover; this was provided by the Russian Air Force, who not only provided this air cover, but also, forced the terrorist group to tactically retreat from the city-center to the eastern district in order to avoid the relentless onslaught from the fighter jets swarming their defensive positions.

Following a brief firefight with ISIS at the east district, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full-control over Jabboul City, marking the first time in three years that they have not only entered this city, but also, advanced this deep into the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

The Syrian Armed Forces are now 3 villages away from the besieged Kuweires Military Airport inside the Deir Hafer Plains; however, despite their recent advances in east Aleppo, the SAA’s progress has not forestalled the terrorist group from carrying out daily attacks on this airbase.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
