DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:00 P.M.) - The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their eastward advance in the Al-Bab Plateau on Saturday, liberating several sites from the so-called "Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham" (ISIS) in east Aleppo.

Led by their republican guard forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate Tal Al-Khashkhashat and its nearby hilltops after a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorists protecting this small village at the outskirts of the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District.

Launching an assault from the northwestern flank on Saturday morning was the predominately Kurdish "Syrian Democratic Forces" - their assistance helped propel the Syrian Arab Army to break-through the Islamic State's front-lines.

This advance on Saturday has positioned the Syrian Armed Forces within 8 km of Al-Bab's western flank; it is also the first time that they have approached the Turkish-backed rebels frontline in eastern Aleppo.

“Turkey vowed on Thursday to retaliate over Damascus’ attack on its soldiers, however they did not say how they planned to do so.”-Rudaw

High time to put up a no fly zone for all Turkish aircrafts crossing the border.
Remember that Syria has S-300 on order… Just deliver them, it’ll avoid Russians to shoot down Turkish aircrafts in order to keep the actual relations “on”…

Its all negotiable between Syria, Russia, and Turkey as they have common goals on future security and sovereignty.
