Syrian Government Forces Advancing On Jihar Air Base (Map Update)

Donate

Syrian government forces are advancing along the Euphrates River in order to reach the Jihar Airbase from the northern and northeastern flanks and to recapture this strategic site from the ISIS terrorist group.

While no intense clashes were reported in the area of Khafsah and villages northwest of it, ISIS units will likely attempt to keep control of the Jihar Airbase.

The control of the airbase allows the terrorist group to keep defended the eastern flank of another ISIS-held town – Deir Hafer.

According to unconfirmed reports, forward units of the Syrian army have already reached outskirts of the Jihar Airbase and engaged ISIS terrorists in firefights.

    The airbases in Syria are not easy to capture if you dont have air support.Kuweires airbase and T 4 airbase are good example.Even Menagh airbase which fell manged to hold for a long time.

    I’ve noticed a mistake in all these Northern Aleppo Province maps, to the southeast the recent gains of the Kurds are not yet corrected, as ISIS is still shown to be in control of the northern shores of lake Tabqa. It should be orange, not dark brown.
