The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces and other pro-government units, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, are storming the village of Ras al-Ayn located north of the important ISIS-held town of Maskanah.

On Monday, the SAA and its allies recaptured Tal Faddah and Samjaliya from ISIS near Ras al-Ayn. On Tuesday, government troops reached the vicinity of Ras al-Ayn engaging ISIS units in an intense fighting in the area.

The government advance was started amid an intense Russian bombing campaign against ISIS units between Maskanah and Ras al-Ayn. According to local sources, at least 12 airstrikes have been delivered in the area since the Tuesday morning.

If government forces get full control over Ras al-Ayn, the villages of Wadha Jadidah and Sakariyah will become obvious targets of the government forces advdancing on Maskanah.

    Iran’s pilots are useless cause of a lack of any air training time, and no real combat experience.
    It is high time Iran begins 3-4 air strikes a day against ISIS and Terrorist in general.
    They need to train, so if Israel/Saudi Arabia go to war against Iran, Iranians pilots will know how to drop bombs with some degree of accuracy.
