The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces and the National Defense Forces (NDF) are storming the town of Tadif in just few kilometers from the ISIS stronghold of al-Bab in the Syrian province of Aleppo.
Reports appear that Tiger Forces and NDF troops have entered Tadif and clashes between them and ISIS terrorists are now ongoing inside the town.
If Tadif is captured by government forces, the army and the NDF will be in less than 2 kilometers from the southern gates of al-Bab.
Meanwhile, rumors have appeared that government forces are going to enter al-Bab despite the fact that pro-Turkish forces are also storming it.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been given the green light by their high command to enter Al-Bab City in east Aleppo, Al-Masdar’s Syria correspondent Yusha Yuseef reported on late Friday.
According to Yuseef, the Syrian Arab Army will enter Al-Bab once the strategic town of Tadef is liberated from the remaining Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists.
The only stipulation that may prohibit them from entering this Islamic State stronghold in east Aleppo is whether or not the Turkish Armed Forces seize the city before them.
Similar to the Syrian Arab Army’s other large-scale offensives, this military operation will be led by their elite Tiger Forces and their Russian allies, who will be providing necessary air coverage over Al-Bab.
