Syrian Forces Capture Aleppo Village from ISIL
On Friday, the Syrian Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces”, backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), gained full control over the village of Nasrallah after a violent heavy clashes with the ISIL terrorists on the Northern outskirts of the Kuweires airbase.
The Syrian armed forces purged the entire area surrounding of the ICARDA Farms, an informed source said, adding that this paved the way for the pro-government forces to liberate the village of Nasrallah from the control of the ISIL terrorists on Friday evening.
After the capture of Nasrallah village, the Tiger Forces and their allies are now in a position to cross into the Al-Baab Plains, after a three-year absence from this front in the Eastern countryside of Aleppo, which is deeply entrenched with ISIL terrorists as their strongholds of Menbaj and Al-Baab are located in this region.
The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces and their allies are currently fighting ISIL at the strategic hilltop village of Tal Al-Ahmar, South of the Kuweires Military Airport; if captured, the airbase will be completely secure at its Southern perimeter.
In November, the Syrian army, popular forces and Hezbollah forces, backed up by Syrian and Russian air force, lifted the two and a half-year-long siege of Kuweires military airbase after killing hundreds of ISIL terrorists.
