ISIL Demands Rival Militants to Start Coalition Following Devastating Defeats in Northern Aleppo


The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS) offered other terrorist groups operating in Northern Aleppo province to give up infighting and start a coalition to slow down the growing trend of the Syrian army victories in the region in recent weeks.

ISIL’s offer includes a 12-paragraph proposal issued after the Syrian army, popular forces and Hezbollah backed up by the Russian air force and Iran’s military recommendations and strategies scored a growing number of victories in almost all lines of engagement, specially in the provinces of Aleppo, Lattakia, Hama and Damascus.

The ISIL proposal includes a ceasefire and establishment of a coalition of all terrorist groups that will last 6 months. The internationally blacklisted terrorist group has given rival militant groups one week to respond to its offer.

The ISIL decision was made after the Syrian army managed to break the siege of strategic Nubl and al-Zahra towns in Aleppo after four years.

Syrian Army troops alongside Hezbollah fighters drove the militant groups back from their main supply lines near the border with Turkey and imposed full control over the highway.

The Syrian army men and Hezbollah ultimately cut off the terrorist groups’ main supply route from the Turkish city of Gaziantep, marking the first time in nearly 3 years that they have had a presence along the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway that stretches through the Aleppo province’s Northern countryside.

With the recent recapture of Ratyan and Mayer in Northern Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces have finally reached the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway near the contested villages of Bayanoun, Kafr Naya, and Hayyan after an intense battle with the terrorists of Nusra Front, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Jeish Al-Mujahiddeen, Harakat Nouriddeen al-Zinki, and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
