BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) had a rough night in east Aleppo, thanks in large-part to the Syrian Arab Army’s rocket battalion.

ISIS was attempting to reinforce the Al-Bab countryside from their positions in the Deir Hafer Plains, when the Syrian Arab Army’s rocket battalion caught the terrorist convoy heading through the village of Umm Al-Mari, south of Deir Hafer city.

According to a military source in east Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s rocket battalion scored a direct hit on 5 vehicles carrying Islamic State reinforcements, killing and wounding a large number of these militants.

Umm Al-Mari, which is located approximately 3km from the Syrian Army’s positions is located along an alternative supply road to the Islamic State’s front-lines in the Al-Bab Plateau.

Due to the Kurdish offensive near the Tabaqa Dam, the Islamic State has been forced to find an alternative supply route to their fighters in the eastern countryside of Aleppo; this is especially important near Al-Bab, where they are currently under attack by the Turkish Army.

Precisely what I anticipated as the basis for action in this area. SAA will use this position to attack ISIS forces on the move. Initially, as in this instance, as they move to reinforce Al Bab, and, ultimately, as they move in retreat from Al Bab. Now, if SDF would only take Taqba airbase, and cut the road from Al Bab to both Raqqa and Deir ez Zor, we might begin to see the end of ISIS in Syria.
