Syrian Army liberates 97 east Aleppo villages in nearly 50 days


On January 13th, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a massive offensive in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, marking the first time since November 2015 that they have carried out any operations at this front.

Within hours of launching this offensive, the Syrian Arab Army liberated several sites from the Islamic State (ISIS), including a number of villages west of the Kuweires Military Airport.

Some 50 days after beginning this large-scale offensive, the Syrian Arab Army now finds themselves in control of 97 villages and several hilltops inside the Islamic State’s heartland in eastern Aleppo.

As of March 3rd, the Syrian Arab Army is still pushing further east in the Aleppo countryside, where they hope to reach the provincial border of the Al-Raqqa Governorate for the first time since their Ithriya offensive.
