Syrian Army captures 2 towns in southwest Aleppo (MAP )

Led by the 25th Special Mission Forces Division (formerly Tiger Forces), the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture two towns this afternoon, following a short battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF).

According to a field report from the southwestern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Army’s 25th Division captured the towns of Arbikh and Arnaz, which are both located just west of the strategic Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5).

Furthermore, Syrian troops are also attempting to capture the towns located immediately west of the Aleppo-Damascus Highway, so that they can eventually open this roadway to the public.
