GOVERNMENT FORCES CAPTURE ANOTHER VILLAGE NEAR ISIS-CONTROLLED JIRAH AIRBASE IN ALEPPO (MAP)
Government troops recaptured the village of Baylan from ISIS terrorists in the Syrian province of Aleppo, according to pro-government sources.
This was the newest in a series of government successes in the area. Earlier the Syrian army captured the villages if Odrisiyah and Jubb Miri in the same area.
Despite the capture of the Baylan village, the Syrian army and its allies are not very close to the liberation of the strategic airbase controlled by the ISIS terrorist group.
The airbase is a strong defense site and ISIS units are set to defend it. In turn, a large part of the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces that has been involved in the government advance in the area is now redeployed to northern Hama.
Thus, the government advance on the Jirah Airbase is not expected in the nearest future if ISIS avoids withdrawing of its forces from the area.
