"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

ISIS prepares to launch an east Aleppo offensive- Al-Masdar News

Three weeks after losing the eastern countryside of the Khanasser Plains, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has decided to launch a large-scale counter-offensive to recapture several kilometers of territory in east Aleppo. 

According to the Russian Defense Minister, intelligence reports revealed that the terrorist group has mobilized a large force in order to counter-attack the Syrian Armed Forces near the strategic cities of Al-Bab and Deir Hafer. 

If true, this would be the perfect time for ISIS to attack the Syrian Armed Forces in east Aleppo; this is due to the large number of inexperienced soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) that have been tasked to replace the veteran “Tiger Forces” in the Al-Safira and Deir Hafer plains.
