ALEPPO, SYRIA (8:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing for a new offensive in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo after nearly six months of inactivity at this front.
According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army is planning to target the territory between the Kuweires Military Airport and Al-Bab.
The main objective will be to expel the Islamic State from the Al-Safira Plains, while also building a buffer-zone around the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District of Aleppo city.
On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army carried out a surprise attack against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham near Nasrallah village, killing a dozen terrorists and destroying 2 of their 4×4 technical vehicles.
There is no set date in place for this planned offensive; however, it is expected to begin in the coming weeks.
