Kuweires a strategic airbase has been under ISIS siege for two years now.

According to the military source, the pro-government forces are preparing to mop up the rest of Sheikh Ahmad region to prepare for a massive offensive on ISIL positions along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

Some 80 percent of Sheikh Ahmad that is seen as a milestone in the Damascus war on terrorist groups in the Northern province of Aleppo is now under the control of the pro-government forces.

"Commanders of the Syrian Army, popular forces, Hezbollah and Russian Air Force held a meeting in Sheikh Ahmad frontline on Monday to coordinate the last phase of their joint operation for removing the two-year-long ISIL siege on Kuweires airbase, Southeast of Aleppo, according to FNA report."
