Last night, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” withdrew from the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant’s compounds after a series of intense firefights with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists that were entrenched inside this strategic site in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.
However, at dawn this morning, the Tiger Forces – backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – launched another powerful assault on the Thermal Power Plant’s northern perimeter, resulting in another violent battle with the ISIS terrorists that were spread around its compounds.
Assisting the government forces from above, the Russian Air Force conducted a number of air raids this morning in order to help propel the Tiger Forces and their allies to penetrate ISIS’ defenses and reenter this strategic site in eastern Aleppo.
Currently, the Tiger Forces and their allies are still attempting to break-through ISIS’ front-line defenses at the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant; however, they have yet achieve any significant progress, thanks in large part to the terrorist group’s reinforcements that arrived last night.
The coming hours will be very critical for both sides; if the Syrian Armed Forces can reenter the Thermal Power Plant’s compounds, they will most likely seize the entire facility this time.
