The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and their allies have officially routed the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) after a one week long battle that began with the aforementioned terrorist group cutting off the government’s only supply route to the Aleppo Governorate.

With the government supply route cutoff at two different sections of two different roads, the Tiger Forces, the Republican Guard, and Hezbollah were deployed to the Khanasser Plains to recapture a dozen villages that were seized by ISIS in a 48 hour time span.

The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies were able to recapture all the villages along the strategic Khanasser-Aleppo Road earlier this week; however, the final task required them to clear the checkpoints seized by ISIS along the Sheikh Hilal-Ithriyah Road, which had been cutoff on the first day of the terrorist group’s offensive.

Despite several reports that indicated ISIS was defeated along the Sheikh Hilal-Ithriyah Road, multiple sources in the area denied these claims over the course of 24 hours until Sunday afternoon, when it was revealed that the Tiger Forces and their allies captured the Al-‘Azeeb Checkpoint from the terrorist group.

As a result of their success, the only government supply route to the Aleppo Governorate has been officially secured by the Syrian Armed Forces after a long week of battle against the ISIS terrorists.
