Units of Syrian government forces, led by the Tiger Forces, are rapidly advancing along the M5 highway in the direction of the militant-held town of Al-Eis in southwestern Aleppo. Over the past day, government forces have liberated over 10 settlements and deployed in a striking distance from al-Eis itself.
Al-Eis is the stronghold of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other terrorist groups. A Turkish observation post is also located there. The post has been established to monitor the ceasefire regime established by the Astana agreements. Nonetheless, it seems that terrorists, officially excluded from the ceasefire, tricked the Turkish Army and drew them into a trap. So, now the Turkish observation post is located a step away from al-Qaeda positions.
The Syrian Army to the rescue!
