BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale assault on Tadef this morning, striking the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses from the town’s southern flank.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” once again began their assault at dawn this morning, making a steady advance despite the heavy resistance from the Islamic State terrorists.

According to a military source in east Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army is expected to liberate Tadef in the coming hours, as the Islamic State forces continue to mass retreat north towards Al-Bab.

The military source also added that the Islamic State has planted several mines around Tadef in order to delay the Syrian Arab Army’s entry into the town.

The Islamic State forces have relied on suicide bombers to defend Tadef; however, these constant VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) attacks have been relatively ineffective, despite their frequency.
