The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is falling apart in the east Aleppo countryside after weeks of fending off the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies from taking the strategic Aleppo Thermal Power Plant.

Over the course of 72 hours, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and the Cheetah Forces “Team 3” – have been steadily advancing west along the imperative Aleppo-Raqqa Highway in order to complete the east Aleppo encirclement.

However, the ISIS terrorists in the Al-Bab Plateau and the Al-Safira Plains were not going to concede any territory to the government forces without a violent battle.

Determined to complete the encirclement, the Tiger Forces launched a vital assault to capture the last village located between their positions along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway and the Jibreen District of Aleppo City.

The assault proved successful as the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over Umm Turaykiyah in the Al-Safira Plains.

As a result, 800 ISIS terrorists that were fighting the Syrian Armed Forces at the strategic city of Al-Safira and its nearby village of Tal ‘Aran found themselves encircled for the first time in this war.

The 800 ISIS terrorists have no outlet to retreat and they have no available supply lines; this means, they will either surrender to the Syrian Armed Forces or fight till the death.

Given ISIS’ history; it is very likely that they choose the latter…

If you are a Turk, you occupied Armenian lands and almost extincted them. So shut up. If you are American, you killed 200000 humans in less than one minute. So shut your mouth up. If you are Zionist … better not to continue.

War is very much propagated by territorial demons that use humans like puppets. This is why the New Testament says our battle is not with flesh and blood. Scripture supports just war because God uses authorities in earth as well as in heaven. Quit being such a racist. There are some incredible stories about people in time of war and how they are impacted, in stories like the Christmas Truce. In retrospect, I read that an 11 year old boy prophesied the Armenian holocaust 50 years before it happened. A family that escaped was Demos Shakarian, used to spark a… Read more »

When wars end and peoples lives return to normal, you may have a Muslim co-worker, an Armenian neighbor. A Vietnamese friend. You know war happened. Your own countrymen were slain. But you say to yourself… My co-worker, neighbor, or my friend cause it. They didn’t kill anybody. Your religion may view the other as a pagan, an unbeliever or an infidel, but you are not rude to them. But with this Syrian war we observe the fruit of this rude, selfish, even murderous mindset. The Syrian war has been a real eye-opener to the world, that tends to be idealistic.… Read more »

Rima, thanks for your racist comment. I suppose if I had come down to your level of mentality, I could have replied, you as an islamist apologist, could not say or think otherwise, but then again I am no bigot.
