Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – established full control over the village of Tal Maksoura in the Al-Bab Plateau after a violent battle with the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

As a result of this successful attack, the Tiger Forces and their allies have now seized 4 villages in the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate over the last 4 days, as the ISIS terrorist continue their massive retreat across this province in northern Syria.

However, the Tiger Forces and their allies were not done today; instead, another contingent pushing west from the Kuweires Military Airport struck ISIS’ defensive positions along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway (M-4 Highway), killing several terrorists while also advancing to the nearby Production Facility that neighbors the Siasco Chemical Factory – which is also the last site before reaching the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant.

According to a battlefield correspondent at the Kuweires Military Airport, the Syrian Armed Forces have launched a barrage of rockets and mortar shells towards ISIS’ positions at the Aleppo Thermal Plant; this attack is likely to continue in conjunction with Tiger Forces advance towards the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District.

The ultimate goal for the Syrian Armed Forces in the coming days will be to liberate the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant; this site is not only strategically located on the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway, but also, a potential remedy for the electricity crisis in Aleppo.
