A week ago, the final assault for the strategic Aleppo was launched, and the persistence of those fighting with the Syrians has paid off as hundreds of ISIS terrorists were killed in one of the fiercest battle so far that put the critical Kuweires airbase under government control as of today.
This successful recovery of the airbase is made possible with the help of the Iranian Quds Special Forces under the command of Major General Qassem Soleimani who was reportedly seen personally directing the operations on the ground, reports said.
This should be another devastating news for Washington warmongers and another huge slap on the face of Obama’s non-existent efforts against the terror group.
Syrian Army, Hezbollah Lift ISIL’s 2.5-Year-Long Siege of Kuweires Airbase in Aleppo
Tue Nov 10, 2015 7:3
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army, popular forces and Hezbollah forces, backed up by Syrian and Russian air forces, lifted the two and a half-year-long siege of Kuweires military airbase after killing hundreds of ISIL terrorists on Tuesday, as unconfirmed reports said the groundbreaking victory was gained under the leadership of Iran’s renowned Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani.
The Syrian troops and Hezbollah forces rolled into the Kuweires airport at the end of their daylong last phase of massive operations.
Heavy clashes were underway around the Kuweires airport since early this morning and the Syrian army was defusing ISIL’s minefield before they could reach their friends in the base.
There are unconfirmed reports from the battlefield about witnessing Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani leading the battle.
Sources from both sides of the war said General Soleimani was the top field commander and has been leading the CentCom of the Syrian army-NDF-Hezbollah at least for the last two days.
FNA is unable to confirm or reject these reports independently.

The Syrian army, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah combatants, backed up by Russian warplanes, launched the last round of their over one-month-long joint operations against the ISIL terrorists’ positions in Eastern Aleppo near the Kuweires airbase this morning, and won full control over the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.
The attack started from multiple directions and ended up in cleaning up several villages from ISIL. Hundreds of the ISIL militants were killed or wounded in this morning operations.
In the next stage, Syrian and Russian Air Forces massively targeted the last strongholds of the ISIL militants around the Kuweires airbase.
In addition to the Syrian and Russian airstrikes, the artillery and mortar units of the army also shelled the ISIL strongholds to weaken their defense lines as much as possible to lay the ground for the combatants of Hezbollah, the army soldiers and the National Defense Forces to launch the final phase of their joint operations to lift the nearly 2.5-year-long siege on Kuweires airbase.
Intelligence sources said hundreds of ISIL militants were fleeing the Kuweires region to safer areas to save their lives after suffering heavy casualties in the joint massive attack of the Syrian Army and Hezbollah with the Russian air backup.
After cleaning the region, the pro-government troops had to defuse a minefield planted by the ISIL before they could reach the gates of airbase.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists have besieged the Kuweires airbase for over 2.5 years now, but the base itself is under the Syrian army’s control.
Hundreds of Syrian forces are under a tight siege at the airbase as a result of the occupation of vast areas surrounding the airport by the terrorists.
The Syrian army’s helicopters supply foodstuff and other needs to the Syrian troops defending the airport.
Cheetah Forces Lift the Three Year Long Siege of the Kuweires Military Airbase
Leith Fadel November 10, 2015
One month ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces branch) began their arduous journey across the Deir Hafer Plains to lift the three year long siege imposed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the Kuweires Military Airport in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Cheetah Forces elite “Team 6 Brigade” – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – broke-through ISIS’ final line of defense at the east Kuweires village and military housing in order to liberate the remaining area and lift this brutal three year long siege.
Over 300 soldiers trapped at the Kuweires Military Airport were greeted by the military personnel from the Cheetah Forces after they liberated east Kuweires village and the military housing; this jubilant event marked the conclusion of this saga.
According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army, the total number of casualties for the Syrian Armed Forces from this Kuweires Military Airport offensive was 57 soldiers, with another 200+ wounded-in-action (WIA) – ISIS’ casualties could not be verified, but it is likely much higher than the Syrian Armed Forces’ death toll.
With the liberation of the Kuweires Military Airport in the Deir Hafer Plains, the Cheetah Forces will be redeployed to the northern Hama front, where they are expected to help forestall the enemy advance and recapture the territory lost to the Islamist rebels.
