The strategic Aleppo-Idlib highway, the M5, is on the horizon for the Syrian Arab Army just west of Al Hadher. Since the capture of the Keweires airbase in Aleppo, the momentum has not stopped, with various villages being captured:

  • Al-Hadher 
  • Al-Eis + hill 
  • Tel Hadiya 
  • Banes. 
  • Tel Bajir 
  • Birnah 
  • Al-Barqoum

Of course, the Russian airstrikes have made this advance possible by driving the Takfiri rats backwards away from the Highway, with al-Nusra vehicles going up in smoke. With this section of the highway secured, Obama’s goons will lose a key supply route, and will suffer a huge blow to morale. Of course, this will anger Turkey too who cannot smuggle weapons to their proxies so easily either. With the recent suicide attacks in Beirut – one would imagine Hezbollah’s determination will be amplified somewhat.

Here is an example from October of an airsrtike in Teir Maalah, a village nearby the M5 highway.
