The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), led by the elite Tiger Forces, continues its relentless drive into the eastern Aleppo countryside, liberating more towns that have been under the occupation of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) for years.

The latest advance has seen the towns of Um Amd, Tal Rahal, Sarbs and Housamia come under the complete control of the SAA within a 24 hours time frame. Operations for the day are believed to have resulted in the death of 20 ISIS terrorists. In addition to this, the strategic town of Maduona which commands the roads (M4 and N212) to the embattled city of al-Bab is now within striking distance of the SAA.

At some point the SAA will make an attempt to seize Maduona in order to expand their zone of control over the M4 and N212 highways further north and consolidate their advance on al-Bab, if indeed the city is the target of their offensive.

It is worth mentioning that the closer the SAA gets to al-Bab, the closer they will be to sealing their front-line with Turkey-led Islamist forces and those of the Turkish Army proper. The ability of the Turkish polity to control the proxy militant forces under their leadership and hold them back from attacking SAA troops whom they (armed groups such as the Free Syrian Army and Ahrar al-Sham) have historically been opposed to will be a critical test of strength for the supposedly new found Moscow-Tehran-Ankara-Damascus alliance.

Four different “forces” on one spot. This should get interesting…

Yep ! Let’s think :

-ISIS is against everyone and will always be
-Kurds and Turks can’t stand each other and will not ally
-the Afrin kurds are in good term with Syrian government (they took several villages together some months ago )

the only unknown therefore , is what will happen between Turks and SAA ?

Ahrar al-Sham grupo terrorista patrocinado por Turquia en este momento participa en negociación en Astana, este grupo terrorista ya había desaparecido en la zona, pero con ayuda de Turquía avanzo y tomo la parte norte de Alepo. Espero en un futuro que el ejercito Sirio expulse este grupo terrorista de la zona y que ellos aseguren su frontera para que no sigan ingresando suministros de armas, mercenarios hacia ISIS y otros grupos terroristas.

Ich nehme das als Zeichen, dass nach der verlorenen Weltherrschaft nun auch Englisch als Weltsprache auf dem absteigenden Ast ist.
