Syrian Army’s Elite Troops Advance in East Aleppo After Crushing ISIL in Al-Shuwaylekh

8 December 2015 7:09


The Syrian Army’s Special Ops known as the “Tiger Forces” struck again in the Eastern parts of Aleppo province, imposing full control over Al-Shuwaylekh village after a violent battle with the ISIL Monday afternoon.

Media sources accompanying the Syrian Armed Forces near the Kuweires Military Airport, the Tiger Forces – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Al-Salamiyah (East Hama city), Hezbollah, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) troops – completed control over Al-Shuwaylekh following their advance from the nearby village of Nasrallah, directly to the North of the frontline.

With Al-Shuwaylekh under the control of the Tiger Forces and their allies, they have the large village of Humaymah Al-Kabeera surrounded from two different flanks, while also holding the high ground after capturing the strategic hilltop of Tal Humaymah, army sources said.

Should the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies seize the village of Humaymah Al-Kabeera, they will be in position to strike at the ISIL stronghold of Deir Hafer, which is only located 3km East of the aforementioned site in the Aleppo Governorate’s Eastern countryside, they added.
