BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – With the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) recent gains in east Aleppo, the Islamic State (ISIS) is now in serious trouble at one of their most important strongholds in the region.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate three villages from the Islamic State terrorists, leaving only a few sites between their forces and the strategic city of Deir Hafer.

Unlike the Turkish Army at Al-Bab, no group is threatening the Islamic State for control of Deir Hafer; this leaves the city up for grabs for the Syrian Arab Army, as the Euphrates Shield forces are nowhere around this area.

If the Syrian Arab Army successfully overtakes the city from the Islamic State, they will be in position to attack the Jirah Airbase near the Euphrates River for the first time in 4 years.

Hope this offensive goes right to the shores of Lake Assad.
