The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have just captured the town of Afesh in East Aleppo province. This capture of the town is the first step in the SAA’s effort to liberate the thermal plant.
This is the latest in a string of victories since the siege of Kuweires air base was lifted months ago.
Since then, a rapid liberation process has begun under the guidance of Major General Suheil al-Hassan.
The assault for the thermal plant is set to take place from Sheikh Najjar Industrial Zone. The SAA and Iraqi militias have begun gathering there to prepare for the assault.
