DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:00 P.M.) – With the Tiger Forces gearing up to restart its counter-insurgency operations in rural Aleppo, Russian airstrikes hammered ISIS positions in the Maskanah Plains throughout the day, killing countless ISIS insurgents in the process.

With airstrikes off-limits in Idlib, Daraa, northern Homs and the East Ghouta, the Russian Air Force is now able to focus its sorties exclusively on ISIS-held territory. Russian air raids were also observed in the Palmyra, Deir Ezzor and east Hama/Homs regions on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the SAA – led by its elite shock troops and tribal reinforcements – is drawing up plans to liberate Jirah Airbase as we speak. Tiger Forces contingents are still arriving in the area, scouting out ISIS fortifications before striking southwards through the Maskanah Plains.

Suheil Al-Hassan, commander-in-chief of the Tiger Forces, will reportedly command two simultaneous offensive in eastern Aleppo and eastern Palmyra against the Islamic State after finishing an overwhelmingly succesful counter-offensive in northern Hama.

The renown SAA commander was also deployed to the eastern Aleppo countryside earlier this year, liberating some 200 villages in a remarkable blitz offensive that expelled the Islamic State from its rural areas in Aleppo province.

It’s clear he’s a excellent commander. Nevertheless, don’t forget that Tiger Forces are an elite troop. Unfortunately, no army can only have elite troops, even the professional ones.

During these new campaigns it would be interesting to read about the overall condition of ISIS fighters found dead or captured alive along with their captured weapons and vehicles. Soldiers can’t fight very well when malnourished plus are stuck with worn out guns and vehicles. I’m thinking that’s what the SAA had noticed earlier when running off ISIS from outside Palmyra and what was left behind when ISIS assaults in the west were driven off, so came to the conclusion that the rest the fighters in those regions were suffering the same or even worse.
