On Wednesday morning in the east Aleppo countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces – alongside Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalion) – launched a major assault on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions at the villages of Al-Si’in, Rasm Al-Alam, Jubb Al-Kalb, and Barlihiyah.

The large-scale assault began at the large village of Al-Si’in, where the Tiger Forces and their allies attempted to recapture the territory lost to the terrorist group over the weekend.

In addition to striking Al-Si’in on Wednesday morning, the Tiger Forces and their allies also attempted to seize the nearby villages of Jubb Al-Kalb, Barlihiyah, and Rasm Al-Alam; however, the ISIS terrorists refused to yield any territory to the government forces that were attempting to press towards both the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant and the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District.

While they were unsuccessful in this military endeavor on Wednesday, the Tiger Forces were able to stake their positions outside of these village, which will allow them to strike once again.

The primary objective at the moment is to recapture Al-Si’in from ISIS.

By recapturing Al-Si’in, the Syrian Armed Forces can push south towards the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant, while another force attempts to cutoff ISIS’ final supply route that flows between the Tiger Forces’ positions in Barlihiyah and the village of Al-Ta’aneh.
