BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their rapid advance in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Friday, liberating more territory inside the southern part of the Al-Bab Plateau.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” overran the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses at the village of Shamer, killing and wounding a number of terrorist combatants en route to their advance north towards Al-Bab.

The Tiger Forces were able to liberate Shamer on Friday afternoon after advancing northeast from the recently captured village of Ta’anah in the Al-Bab countryside.

As a result of their recent gains, the Syrian Arab Army is now at the outskirts of Souran; this is one of the Islamic State’s last strongholds south of Al-Bab.

Erdogan no puede salir con su gusto, Siria tiene que hacer respetar su soberanía y Assad su palabra, por estrategia el ejercito Sirio es quien tiene que asegurar su frontera para que no sigan ingresando armas, suministros y mercenarios desde Turquía.
