Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – launched a wide-scale offensive along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway (M-4 Highway) to seize the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant that is currently under the control of the so called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).

The Tiger Forces launched the assault from two different axes: one attack from the village of ‘Ayn Al-Jamjamiyah and other attack from the recently captured village of Wadi’yah in the Al-Bab Plateau.

According to a military source that is embedded at the Kuweires Military Airport, the Tiger Forces and their allies are attempting to establish control over the nearby production facility and the Siasco Chemical Plant that is located along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway in the Deir Hafer Plains.

Originally, the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant was the primary target after the liberation of the Kuweires Military Airport; however, the need to build a buffer-zone around the aforementioned airbase required the Tiger Forces to expand their operations to the Al-Bab Plateau.

If the Syrian Armed Forces capture the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant, they could ultimately fix the electricity issues plaguing the provincial capital.

In addition to fixing the electricity issues, the Syrian Armed Forces will be in position to encircle the remaining ISIS terrorists in the Al-Safeera Plains of east Aleppo.
