The ISIS terrorist group has launched a large-scale offensive against the Syrian army south of the Syrian town of Khanaser in order to cut off the road to the government stronghold of Aleppo.
According to local and pro-opposition sources, ISIS terrorists have seized several villages south of Khanaser and are further developing an advance.
The government supply line to Aleppo is now de-facto cut off, according to reports. However, pro-government sources deny this.
The Russian Aerospace Forces have responded to the ISIS advance with a sworm of airstrikes. Government troops are regrouping for a counter-attack.
