BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 A.M.) – Unprecedented gains were acchieved in the eastern Aleppo countryside on Tuesday as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) wrestled control of over 30 villages from ISIS in less than 24 hours.

Moments ago, the SAA’s Tiger Forces also captured the town of Al-Sukhny, thus setting foot on the western bank of Lake Assad (Euphrates River) for the first time in five years.

Effectively, the SAA’s offensive has almost entirely expelled ISIS from Aleppo province. In addition, the advances cancel any plans by the Kurdish-led ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ about advancing towards Raqqa city from the western bank of the Euphrates River.

As a token of appreciation, the SAA brought two bottles of Euphrates water to Russian generals at Kuweiris Airbase in show of gratitude for their air support. According to AMN correspondent Yusha Yuseef, the symbolic bottles will be flown to Moscow shortly.

Next up, the Tiger Forces will strike southwards along Lake Assad until they encountered ISIS’ last defensive line on the axis between Jirah Airbase and Deir Hafer.

Due to today’s SAA advancements, the Tiger Forces have not only lived up to their reputation as fearsome assault troops, but also arguably proven to be the most effective fighting force in the fight to defeat the Islamic State.

IMHO. Great achievement of the involved men/unit to gain so much and keep IS off balance & on the run for so long.

Liberating the Allepo city was the mother of all battles in Syria and reaching to the Euphrates river was the father of all battles in Syria. SAA soldiers at last achieved to meet their own father. Congratulation 🙂 .

Good news but not good enough – the brave Tiger Forces must push to Deir Hafer and Maskanah and eliminate Daesh from all of Aleppo province. Hopefully, the SAA can launch a simultaneous attack from Khanasir to reach Maskanah making a pincer movement on ISIL. We’ll see what the future has in store, but all I know for sure is that 20 villages a day keeps the jihadists away and that’s what’s most important

Excelente, ahora no podrán ingresar mercenarios desde Turquía, mucho menos armas ni municiones y suministros para ISIS.
