The Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Regiment of the 4th Mechanized Division made their first major push across the Al-Hoss Plateau’s southwestern countryside on Thursday, capturing the entire mountain range from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki.

This advance inside the Al-Hoss Plateau is rather significant for the Syrian Armed Forces because it helps build a larger buffer-zone around their only supply route to the Aleppo Governorate.

As long as the Khanasser-Aleppo Highway remains under their control, then the Syrian Armed Forces can continue their military operations in both the southwestern and southeastern parts of the Aleppo Governorate.

The capture of Jabal Hoss also allows for the Syrian Armed Forces to make an important push to reopen the Ramleh-Aleppo Road that is adjacent to the Khanasser-Aleppo Highway.

A major problem that is plaguing the Syrian Armed Forces is the absence of an alternative supply route to Aleppo; this has been an issue since they lost the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).

The capture of Ramleh and its nearby villages that are under rebel control in northeast Hama would not only open this new supply route, but also, alleviate much of the pressure on the Khanasser-Aleppo Highway.
