It is in the area Huwaysis VKS at the time, lost a Mi-35.
The occupation of the district Huwaysis allows you to develop the offensive in Akerbat from the South-East. Given the fact that the main forces of the militants are concentrated in the Western part of the boiler and the high momentum of the SAA, the militants will find it very difficult to organize a full defense from the East.
