Aleppo Governorate:

 

Perhaps the most important development to take place in the Aleppo Governorate during the month of November was the lifting of the Kuweires Military Airport’s two year long siege that was imposed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

 

In southern Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – captured the imperative towns of Tal Al-‘Eiss and Al-Hadher in a matter of 24 hours after a violent battle with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki.

 

The month of November was bad for both the Islamist rebels and ISIS as they conceded several villages and large swathes of territory to the Syrian Arab Army.
