Syrian Army liberates Maskanah, ISIS expelled from Aleppo


Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) announced the full liberation of the key town of Maskanah in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Islamic State (ISIL) forces withdrew from Maskanah and its surrounding villages after losing much of the high ground overlooking the town.

This operation to liberate Maskanah was led by the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces; they have been the main unit carrying out the east Aleppo offensive this year.

With Maskanah under their control, the Syrian Arab Army will now shift their attention to the eastern countryside of Hama, where they hope to expel ISIL from central Syria once and for-all.
