BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Monday, liberating several sites from the Islamic State terrorist organization.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by liberating the village of Humaymah Al-Kabira after a short battle with the Islamic State terrorists.
Following the liberation of Humaymah Al-Kabira, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the northern perimeter of Humaymah Al-Saghira, where they were confronted by an exhausted Islamic State force.
Within two hours, the Syrian Arab Army had overrun the Islamic State’s defenses and imposed full control of Humaymah Al-Saghira.
As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army is now within 2km of the Islamic State’s last stronghold in Aleppo: Deir Hafer.
