Pro-government forces, led by the Syrian Army Tiger Forces, have made more gains during their advance on the ISIS stronghold of Maskaneh in the province of Aleppo.
Since the liberation of the strategic Jirah Military Airbase from ISIS earlier this month, the Tiger Forces and their allies liberated a large area south of the airbase advancing on the road to Maskaneh.
On Saturday, the Tiger Forces took control of the Thaletha farm and the abandoned railroad station. The railway service was a key component of the logistic in pre-war Syria. However, since 2011, the railway network has collapsed in a major part of the country.
Now, government troops are advancing in the direction of Ras al-Ayn andd Sakarryah, the last villages located on the Syrian army road to Maskaneh. However, government forces will likely attempt to isolate the town before storming it.
