The Syrian Arab Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces” reportedly captured the village of ‘Aqulah after a fierce battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Kuweires Military Airporf’s southern countryside.

Accoeding to a military source that is embedded with the Tiger Forces in east Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army – backed by Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City – captured Aqulah after breaking through ISIS’ last line of defense at the village’s northern sector.

The source added that at least 20 enemy combatants were reportedly killed during this military operation to liberate ‘Aqulah.

‘Aqulah is situated between the villages of Kaskays (south of the Kuweires Militaey Airport) and just north of the imperative hilltop village of Tal Al-Ahmar; if the aforementioned village is captured by the Tiger Forces and their allies, they will be in position to cutoff all of the ISIS supply lines to the western countryside of the Deir Hafer Plains.

The Tiger Forces will now shift their attention to the strategic hilltop village of Tal Al-Ahmar, where the ISIS militants are deeply entrenched inside its northern perimeter in order to protect it from the advancing Syrian Armed Forces.
