The government forces almost completely surrounded the last ISIS stronghold to the East of Aleppo city.
Military sources report that the “Tiger Forces” brigade tactical group, which leads the offensive on Maskana has recently managed to surround the citadel of Daesh from the three directions. The terrorists are being sieged from the North, West and East.
Our field sources say the ISIS militants are now only able to retreat along the Maskana – Tabqa – Raqqa highway. Report also indicate that ISIS units might have abandoned Maskana, leaving there only shaheed squads and so called ingimacy (those who go for death) in order to detain “Tigers” and to slow down the advance of SAA.
