On Sunday morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s southeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by Hezbollah, the Republican Guard, and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – captured the village of Abu Al-Karouz after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Khanasser Plains.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the village of Abu Al-Karouz is located in Jabal Al- Souss (Al-Souss Mountains), which is not far from the recently captured city of Khanasser.

The source added that the capture of Abu Al-Karouz is the first step the Tiger Forces have taken to expand their buffer-zone around the strategic Aleppo-Khanasser Road, which ultimately leads to the provincial provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate.

However, despite this recent advance, the Syrian Armed Forces have yet to recapture the Al-‘Azeeb Checkpoint after a number of attempts to reopen this strategic supply route.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are attacking ISIS in the northeastern countryside of the Hama Govenrorate; if they are successful, they will be able to reopen the imperative supply route to the Aleppo Governorate.
