Syrian Army And Hezbollah Get Closer To Besieged Airbase In Aleppo

Syrian Army

The Syrian army together with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah fighters are closing in on the besieged Kuweires Airbase in the northern province of Aleppo, Syria.

The strategic base looks to be on the verge of being liberated from ISIS after being under siege for two years. The joint forces have been conducting fierce battles with the terrorist over several days in Sheikh Ahmad in Eastern part of Aleppo.

Fars News reports:

The latest reports from the battlefield said that the government forces are very close to seize back full control over Sheikh Ahmad after killing tens of Takfiri terrorists.

Last week, the Syrian army, popular forces and Hezbollah backed up by Russian warplanes started massive operations and came almost half a mile closer to the Kuweires airport in a region where advance in every inch has taken days.

The pro-government forces marched on ISIL positions in the region and advanced to the rural district of Sheikh Ahmad after taking full control of the railway crossing.

The Syrian army and Hezbollah deployed their forces in a region only 2 kilometers away from the airbase.

At the time, the government forces were preparing to mop up the rest of Sheikh Ahmad to prepare for a massive offensive on ISIL positions along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway. Some 80 percent of Sheikh Ahmad – that is seen as a milestone in the Damascus war on terrorist groups in the Northern province of Aleppo – was under the control of the pro-government forces.

Army sources said the Russian strikers have played a very crucial role in the operation.
