The Syrian Army troops blocked the city of Maskanah in the east of Aleppo from the north, west and east. Thus, the positions of ISIS terrorists were cut off from the supply routes.
According to the commander of the operation, Colonel Suheil al-Hassan, ISIS forces have already begun to flee from Maskanah, leaving behind only suicide bombers who unsuccessfully try to slow the progress of the Syrian government troops in the area.
Earlier, the government forces had liberated some strategically important positions in Syria’s Aleppo. Nowadays, the Syrian Army completely controls Al-Jarrah airbase and some villages of Al-Arida, Al-Ashini, Rasm Al-Hamam, and Tanouza.
