Syrian regime forces surround Daesh forces east of Aleppo

On 20 February 2016, the Syrian regime offensive resulted in the encirclement of Daesh [ISIS] forces in the area between Aleppo city and Kwaires military base.

The offensive has been going on during the recent weeks, with towns of Arran and Barlehiyah being taken by the Assad’s forces on 15 February and the town of As Sin on 18 February.

On 20 Assad’s forces took Aleppo Thermal Power Plant and village Turaykiyah. This latest achievement cut the last link between the bulk of Daesh territory and the area around Daesh-held town of Rayyan, that has been surrounded as a result.
