BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – Sources exclusive to Al-Masdar News have revealed what the Syrian Arab Army’s operational plan for the surrounded Islamic State bastion in the country’s northwest is.
In the last 24 hours, the Syrian Army – led by the elite Tiger Forces Division – has made a huge advance against ISIS in the country’s northwest, seizing some 50-odd towns and villages from the terrorist group.
Despite this, the reality is that as the pocket shrinks further and ISIS fighters are pushed into a smaller area, resistance will increase.
To this end, the Syrian Army has devised a plan to split the encircled ISIS pocket in northeast Syria it into multiple, smaller segments.
The logic behind the plan is to dislocate Islamic State defenses from multiple axes, isolate militant combat units from one another and break up communication lines to prevent coordinated regrouping and counter-attack efforts that terrorist fighters will inevitably attempt to undertake.
