The Tiger Forces are rolling through the eastern Aleppo countryside, where they are making a push towards two different ISIS strongholds that have relatively untouched since the terrorist group first seized them from their former allies in the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).

On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces” – in close coordination with Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over the village of Ayishah after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) inside the Al-Bab Plateau of east Aleppo.

However, following the capture of Ayishah, the Tiger Forces, the National Defense Forces, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra did not remain idle; instead, they decided to clear 4 small villages in the surrounding area in order to clear the path towards the ISIS stronghold of Al-Bab.

According to Shadi Hulwe of Syrian TV, the Tiger Forces were unable to identify the names of these villages due to their relative obscurity; however, they are now at the ‘Ayn Al-Jahesh axis, which leaves them only a few kilometers away from Al-Bab’s southern perimeter.

It appears the Tiger Forces are going to make a move towards the city of Al-Bab before they attack Deir Hafer, which is the gateway to the Raqqa Governorate’s western countryside.

I wish there was a list of all the places captured and liberated that we could throw in the faces of those still banging on about Russia bombing children and ”evil” Assad slaughtering and starving his own people..

Well done SAA and allies. However is it a god idea to telegraph your punches? If you make your opponent keep guessing where you are going next or what you are going to do, gives him a greater opportunity to make errors in planning.
