Earlier this morning inside the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Ba’ath Battalions), and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – imposed full control over the village of Tanouza after a violent battle with the so called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).
According to a military source embedded at the nearby Kuweires Military Airport, the Tiger Forces and their allies seized the village of Tanouza after advancing north from the recently captured town of Al-‘Afesh in the Al-Bab Plateau of east Aleppo.
As of recently, the Tiger Forces and their allies have launched a major offensive from two different axes in order to capture the strategic Aleppo Thermal Power Plant from the ISIS terrorists occupying this site along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway (M-4 Highway).
Currently, the Tiger Forces and their allies are approximately 3.5 km away from the Thermal Power Plant; however, they have made rapid progress around this site in last 72 hours.
The Syrian Armed Forces possess the ability to reach the Thermal Power Plant, but they will have to secure the roads around this strategic site before they make an attempt to seize it from ISIS.
