The Islamic State (ISIS) was surprised in mid-January when the Syrian Arab Army launched a massive offensive in the southern countryside of Al-Bab, despite the rumors of a possible government of attack on their other stronghold in east Aleppo.

In approximately 2 weeks, the Syrian Arab Army liberated a large chunk of territory from the Islamic State forces, leaving the aforementioned terrorist group wedged between the government and Turkish Armed Forces in Al-Bab.

With the Turkish Armed Forces stuck in a stalemate with the Islamic State in northeast Al-Bab, the Syrian Arab Army has taken the initiative to liberate this large city and put an end to the terrorist group’s presence in the area.

 

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army has liberated at least 25 villages since the start of their Al-Bab offensive, making this assault their most successful of the year.

As they inch closer to Al-Bab, the Syrian Arab Army will find the remaining Islamic State forces much more difficult to overrun due to their well-fortified positions and territorial advantage.
