Syrian Army storms strategic airport in east Aleppo


The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their assault at the strategic Jirah Military Airport today, striking the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses at the western perimeter of this installation in east Aleppo.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces hit the Islamic State’s positions at dawn, sending two waves of infantry personnel to infiltrate the terrorist group’s defenses.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Islamic State is putting up a heavy fight at the Jirah Airport, despite several claims by opposition activists claiming they have retreated from this installation.

If the Syrian Arab Army is successful in their attempt to liberate the Jirah Airport, they will be in prime position to begin their military operations in the Maskanah Plain.
