Syrian Army approaches important town to cutoff last militant supply line from Aleppo to Idlib

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The situation in northwestern Syria is getting worse by the day for the militant forces, as they now find themselves on the verge of losing their last supply line between Idlib and Aleppo. READ ALSO: Russian Military Announces Aleppo-Damascus Highway is Fully Under Syrian Army Control According to a Syrian military source in the provincial capital of Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army is approaching the strategic town of Al-Atareb, which is located along the main road between Aleppo and Reyhanli (Turkish city). This approach is imperative because Al-Atareb is one of the last towns along the roadway leading to the Kafr Lousen Crossing at the Turkish border. Should the Syrian Army capture Al-Atareb and push Sarmada, the entire militant-held pocket in northwestern Syria will be split in two, with Aleppo and Idlib only being accessible from Turkish territories.

Will the Nevada Democratic caucuses be able to avoid the catastrophe of Iowa? That's the question on everyone's mind eight days out, with early voting set to begin on Saturday. Although Nevada Democrats were originally set to use apps by the same company behind the disastrous Iowa one, CNN reports they'll now use a new tool that they've been "scrambling to promote": a "caucus calculator." Precinct chairs are to use this tool on iPads to "work out viability and delegate results during the caucuses by adding together caucus results and early vote data," CNN writes, although Nevada Democrats said Thursday "caucuses can operate without this calculator."
