"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. "

Syrian Army set to storm Jirah Airbase after liberation of ISIS-held village in rural Aleppo- Al-Masdar News

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:25 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is slowly, but surely expelling ISIS forces from their last stretch of land in Aleppo province as government troops liberated another village on Wednesday evening.
Following the capture of two neighboring villages on Monday, the SAA’s Tiger Forces liberated the village of Baylan, thus coming within 200 meters of Jirah Airbase.
In recent weeks, ISIS has heavily fortified Jirah Airbase in face of a looming SAA assault; however, should the Tiger Forces pursue a pincer around the airport, it could easily fall without a battle similar to recent events at Deir Hafer.
