Just as jihadists from Jabhat Al-Nusra, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Ahrar Al-Sham were beginning to mobilize for a major offensive in North Aleppo, the elite Tiger Forces destroyed 7 armored vehicles, including 3 BMPs and 4 tanks, before the militants had a chance to launch their attack. This was preceded by the destruction of a VBIED in rebel-held territory before it had begun its journey to the Mallah region.

The failed offensive went from bad to worse for the jihadists as the Syrian Army went on to capture 4 BMPs as well as 2 tanks (T-72 and T-55) while the remaining militants fled the battle, and to further exacerbate their woes, the Tiger Forces managed to surround and capture a group of 20 militants in the vicinity of the Mallah farms.

News of this failed offensive comes at a sensitive time for North Aleppo, as rebel forces desperately attempt to lift the siege that has been imposed upon the eastern neighborhoods of Syria’s largest city. Should the jihadists fail to do this, they will most likely be forced to succumb to the terms of the Syrian government in order to resolve the conflict there, as basic supplies have become scarce and have already begun to sky-rocket in price.

If it’s wasn’t already clear to the terrorist groups, it should be now. Turkey switched sides on them.

I would be overjoyed if that were true but recent events around Kinsibba seem to indicate otherwise.

Honestly hope you are right.

Those captured should be stuck on poles as Vlad Tepes did! Inside a*s and outside mouth! No mercy to jihadists!

Simply, as they have a gigantic number of pigs as they use ’em as main meat : just contract China to make body-bags with pig skin and bury all jihadists in (and advertise). Even if they’d deserve it, we shall NEVER become the same kind of animals they are… But we may be nasty by securing them a place in h**l doing this. In fact, the impalement of carcasses (bonded in pig skins!) is more interesting if you live in a village : plant them at the gates and, as fore sure, their buddies will want to rescue, you booby-trap… Read more »

Tiger Forces are really pros. Constellis Holdings (Blackwater/Academi+Triple Canopy) will offer them big money to go in the private military sphere…

Napalm is of no particular advantage in the open terrain you pointed out. Its purpose is to defoliate an area.

Cluster munitions, on the other hand…
