Government Forces Launch Offensive In Eastern Aleppo – Reports

Support SouthFront

Pro-government forces, led by the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, have reportedly lauched an offensive in the eastern countryside of the Syrian city of Aleppo.

Unconfirmed reports in pro-government sources appeared on January 17 that pro-government forces advanced against ISIS terrorists, seized the village of A`bad  and attacked Rasm Al-Abed. The advance was reportedly backed up by artillery and airstrikes.

If true, this advance can be a government response to the ongoing ISIS advance in Deir Ezzor.

The offensive is led be Suheil Al Hassan.The goal could be Tabqa.It is not sure for now.The offensive was planned for more than a month.


Deir hafer and the water pump near Euphrates and the airstrip is more logical targets.


Yes, agreed. Then hopefully co-ordinated advance down the N4 with 555 Brigade Grouping from ITHRIYAH pushing NE


Longer term strategic objective will be TABQA (dam and airbase) leading to RAQQA. Immediate operational objectives are DEIR HAFER, JIRAH AB, KHAFSAH water stations. You are right ref planning – movement of troops and logistics started mid-December, once Aleppo was liberated forces were re-deployed to Kuweis staging area

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
