Domino Collapse of ISIL in Eastern Aleppo Continues, Syrian Soldiers Capture More Regions
The army units continued to push back the ISIL terrorist group from the Eastern part Aleppo province with rapid advances toward Maskana plain, recapturing more lands.
Military sources in Northern Syria reported that the army, backed up by the country’s Air Force, has continued its advances against ISIL and has now reached positions only seven kilometers away from ISIL-held town of Maskana.
The sources added that the army soldiers have pushed ISIL back from the villages of al-Mazran, al-Kanaviyeh, Rasm al-Homam al-Qarbi, Mohseneh and al-Jamileh after hours of non-stop clashes.
Another military source pointed out that after the army’s advances against ISIL in the last two days, the pro-government forces will soon take control of the Sugar Factory because ISIL is not capable of defending the region and has preferred to pull forces back from the battlefield to evade more casualties.
The source added that the ISIL has planted a large number of landmines near the Sugar Factory and inside the factory to delay the army’s advances in the area and also to slow down the soldiers’ push towards Maskana.
The source underscored that if the factory falls into the army, the town of Sukriyeh will remain the last defense line of ISIL before Maskana.
