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.

Trump has already tweeted about Barr's interview complaining about his tweets

President Trump has a message for Attorney General William Barr: I will never log off. Barr in a rare rebuke of Trump on Thursday criticized the president's tweets about Department of Justice cases in an interview with ABC News, begging him to knock them off because they're making his job difficult. "I think it's time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases," Barr said in the interview, saying tweets like these from the president "make it impossible for me to do my job." This came amid an ongoing controversy over the Department of Justice reversing its sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump angrily tweeted about it. So what was Trump's response to Barr begging him to stop it with the DOJ-related tweets? Another DOJ-related tweet, of course. Trump on Friday quoted a different part of the interview in which Barr said Trump has "never asked me to do anything in a criminal case," with Trump claiming this is true but only because he has "chosen not to"…
