On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Al-Ba’ath Brigades (Liwaa Al-Ba’ath) – stormed the Stone Quarries in southern Al-Bureijj, killing a number of militants from the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) and retaking ground captured by the latter last week. The SAA and its allies were able to fight past the Stone Quarries and continue their push south towards the strategic Hanano District in Aleppo.

The Islamic Front suffered significant casualties at Al-Bureijj over the last 7 days; this was due in large part to the numerous airstrikes launched by the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) inside the village. An estimated 60+ militants are believed to have been killed since last Thursday in the village of Al-Bureijj, including the prominent Islamic Front fighter, Mohammad ‘Abdullah (AKA “Abu Riad Al-Hallaq”).

Identified Islamic Front militants killed at Al-Bureijj:

1. Ramadan Hajj Khamees
2. Zakaria Ahmad Barakaat
3. Di’ab Mohammad Al-Najjar
4. Sobhi Makheebar Al-Shaaghal
5. Hussein Al-Hammoud
6. Murshid Al-Najjar
7. Mohammad Faysal Bakour
8. Mohammad Hussein ‘Ajjou
9. ‘Abdel-Qader Awassou
10. Mohammad Hameed Al-Najjar
11. Zakaria Turkmaani
12. Ahmad Sha’abou
13. ‘Ali ‘Aassi
14. Mohammad ‘Abdullah (‘Abu Riad Al-Hallaq)
15. Mohammad ‘Usama Farou
16. Farouh Deebaan Farouh

At the Al-‘Amariyyah District in southern Aleppo, the NDF destroyed a Liwaa ‘Ahrar Al-Sham (Liberators of the Levant Brigade) military barracks that said to have housed up to 40 militants. The military barracks was planted with multiple explosives below the building and was later detonated on early Wednesday morning – the number of militants killed inside the building is unknown.
