On Wednesday morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces” continued their advance inside the Al-Bab Plateau, attacking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions at the villages of ‘Ayn Al-Jahesh (“eye of the donkey”) and ‘Ayn Al-Bayda (“eye of the egg”).
The Tiger Forces – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – imposed full control over of ‘Ayn Al-Bayda after an intense battle with the ISIS terrorists inside this small village in the Al-Bab Plateau of east Aleppo.
According to a military source near the Kuweires Military Airport in east Aleppo, the Tiger Forces and their allies killed a confirmed 19 enemy combatants from ISIS, while also destroying 4 armored vehicles that were either mounted with anti-aircraft machine guns or doshkas.
The village of ‘Ayn Al-Bayda is situated directly east of ‘Ayishah, which was captured by the Tiger Forces during a large military operation to officially enter the Al-Bab Plateau on Monday morning; it is also located along the road that leads to the ISIS stronghold of Menbeij in northeast Aleppo.
Currently, the Tiger Forces and their allies are attempting to advance at ‘Ayn Al-Jahesh, where ISIS is reluctant to yield any ground to the pro-government forces.
