On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in coordination with Hezbollah and the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City – continued their large-scale offensive in the Aleppo Governorate’s east countryside, striking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions at a number of sites in both the Deir Hafer and Al-Bab Plains.

The Tiger Forces and their allies began their assault on ISIS’ defensive positions at the town of Humaymah Al-Kabeerah, where they attempted to capture this small village’s western sector after a long exchange of gunfire and mortar shells; this Syrian Armed Forces assault is still ongoing at the moment.

South of the Kuweires Military Airport, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance struck ISIS’ fortifications at the village of ‘Aqlat ‘Aqulah, seizing the small hills that leads to the northern entrance of this aforementioned terrorist group stronghold.

North of the Kuweirws Military Airport, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces launched their first assault towards the Al-Bab Plains, striking the controlled village of Nasrallah to the east of the recently captured town of ‘Arbeed; if Nasrallah is captured, the Syrian Armed Forces will have cutoff ISIS’ surrogate supply route along the Al-Bab-Deir Hafer Road.

The most powerful assault that was conducted this morning was done along the Kuweires Military Airport’s western flank, where the Tiger Forces and Hezbollah attempted to advance along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway towards the Thermal Plant; unfortunately, they are stick combatting ISIS at the Sisako Chemical Factory.
