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.

IMHO. They will bypass Deir Hafer and its fortifications. Cheaper to go into the depth and watch the IS-militants withdraw before they are totally cut off and surrounded.

p.s. SAA employed that strategy with good success recently. It saves most of the town’s infrastructure for the future. And outside of the towns the better trained and equipped SAA elite forces have an extra edge.

Truly good. Hope the SAA will make the IS pull out without a big shawarma party ( tasty Syrian dish: roasted meat with bread) inside of the town.

Wow, I didn’t expect Humaymah Kabirah to be liberated so fast: it was the frontline against the Kuweires Air Base for years now and who knows how many fortifications and complicated defenses they built over that time. Onward to Deir Hafer!

Regarding the article’s title, though: Wouldn’t Maskanah also be an Aleppo stronghold? It’s basically the gateway to Raqqa Province although it is in Aleppo Province

Lo mejor sería rodearlos por todos los flancos y que se mueran de hambre.
Otra alternativa, dejarlos un camino angosto y al momento de la huida practicar tiro con proyectiles.
