The Kurdish YPG under the brand of the Syrian Democractic Forces have seized 2 villages in North Aleppo, Syria: Hrbul and Tall Malid. Kurdish units were able to made these advances because of the ISIS withdrawal from the region.
On June 7, ISIS units withdrew from the areas near the strategic cities of Marea and Azaz. No clashes between ISIS and other militants were observed. The terrorist group just passed the areas to the so-called “moderate opposition”, proving the fact of the cooperation with it.
Experts believe that the ISIS redeploys forces from North Aleppo to the areas of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor. The goals are to strengthen the defenses near Raqqa and to prepare an advance on the Syrian government forces, besieged in the city of Deir Ezzor.
