Government forces have retaken two more villages – Afrin and Rasm al-Abed – from ISIS terrorists in the area south of al-Bab in the Syrian province of Aleppo. The Syrian army has also entered Shamer, but the village still remains contested.
The Syrian army, led by the elite Tiger Forces, launched an offensive against ISIS in northern Aleppo on Monday. Since then, government forces have liberated 3 villages and Moscow and Ankara have intensified airstrikes against ISIS targets in the area.
If Damascus, Moscow and Ankara agree terms and conditions of cooperation, they can launch a major-scale anti-ISIS advance, aiming to retake from the terrorist group waste areas in eastern Aleppo.
