BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) conducted a powerful assault against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) forces in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Monday, striking the latter’s defenses inside the contested Deir Hafer Plains.

Syrian Army rocket battalions pounded the Islamic State-held towns of Rasm Al-Hermel Al-Imam and Al-Hermeli in the Deir Hafer countryside, causing significant damage to the terrorist group’s defenses on Monday.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s rocket battalions destroyed as many as 8 armored vehicles belonging to the Islamic State militants in the Deir Hafer countryside, including several pick-up trucks that were fitted with 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

Today’s attack on the Deir Hafer countryside marked the first time this month that the Syrian Arab Army has conducted field operations against the Islamic State forces.

Now just hope they will circumvent taking the town at first and just besiege while rushing to lake Assad if they don’t want Turkey being able to cut the country in two in the end.

Turkey have in the end to retreat back to their borders.
They are just unable to crack Albab – lamenting for US air support (that they don’t get, because of tehir SDF-attacks) – so how they can fight down PKK in their homeland 😉
Turkey should take care not to break in 3 parts – jihadists,kemalists,kurds.

The problem is the end : Turkey try to block the kurds. Until there is an agrement between kurds and Damas, Turkey will not release this territory.
And don’t forget FSA. They probably want to fight the SAA.
So I think the end is not near.

They probably will try to clear the south Aleppo, and after rush to Deir Hafer and later Jirah.
