Aleppo - SMART

The Islamic State has entered the administrative borders of Aleppo, Northern Syria, after Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, which is a military entity of fighting groups, withdrew from the villages south of the province. Meanwhile, ISIS gained control of new villages east of Idlib.

On Tuesday, local activists told SMART that yesterday the members of ISIS advanced in the Kharaij area south of Aleppo, which includes a number of villages, such as Khawarij and Rasem al-Jahash, after HTS’ members withdrew for fear of being besieged by ISIS and Syrian loyalist forces.

Activists pointed out that ISIS entered the region coinciding with the loyalist forces' advance. Other activists said that ISIS captured two members of the loyalist forces and another of HTS during their advance.

Loyalist forces have advanced to dozens of villages south of Aleppo after HTS' withdrawal, to become about three km away from Abu al-Duhur Military Airport east of Idlib.

ISIS gained control of six villages east of Idlib, near Abu al-Duhur Military Airport, including Jib al-Othman, Jib al-Rumman, Mas'ada, Tarfawi and Tal Halawa, after HTS withdrew from the area for fear of being besieged after loyalist forces gained control of the town of Sinjar and the surrounding villages east of Idlib.

ISIS media said that ISIS killed, wounded and captured a number of members of the loyalist forces east of Abu al-Duhur Military Airport. ISIS also seized heavy and medium caliber weapons and anti-tank missiles. Media published photos of two people destroying graves in an eastern village of Idlib.

The advance of ISIS coincides with the broad advance of the factions of the Free Syrian Army and Islamist battalions in the southern countryside of Idlib during battles with the loyalist forces. Earlier, two battles were launched with the participation of many factions without the HTS, which fights alone.
