The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” are on a roll in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside, seizing 4 villages in the last 4 days from the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS), while also closing the gap between the Al-Bab Plateau and the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District inside the provincial capital.

On Sunday morning, the Tiger Forces – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – established full control over the village of Tal Maksour in the Al-Bab Plateau after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham terrorists occupying this area of eastern Aleppo.

With the capture of Tal Maksour this morning, the Syrian Armed Forces are now just 13.5 km away from the 3rd Zone of the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District in Aleppo City; this means that the ISIS terrorists inside the Deir Hafer and Al-Safira Plains are on the verge of being completely encircled.

While the ISIS central command concentrates on Deir Ezzor and northern Aleppo, they have left their remaining fighters in the east Aleppo countryside at the mercy of the Tiger Forces and their allies, who have gained several hundred kilometers of territory in the last 3 months.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
