Syrian government forces, led by the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, have liberated the villages of Sarbas, Husamiya, Deir Hanta, Um al-‘Amed and Tell Rahal from ISIS terrorists in the eastern countryside of Aleppo city.
With capturing the village of Tell Rahal, the Syrian army de-facto reached the area controlled by pro-Turkish militant groups and the Turkish Armed Forces near al-Bab.
There are almost no ISIS units in the area of Sha’alah. So, it cannot serve as a buffer zone between pro-government and pro-Turkish forces.
Previous reports by pro-Turkish sources and media activists that Turkey-led forces had seized the villages of Tel Rehal and Kharabishah were false.
