BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army had another productive day in the Aleppo Governorate this week, capturing several sites from the jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab and Jaysh Al-Fateh, while also shrinking the remaining pocket in the provincial capital’s eastern sector.

The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces,” alongside the Republican Guard, began today’s offensive by storming the Tariq Al-Bab Quarter of east Aleppo, capturing more than 50 percent of this area after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels.

Following the assault on Tariq Al-Bab, the Syrian Armed Forces launched several attacks along a number axes in the east Aleppo pocket; this resulted in the collapse of the enemy defenses at the Karm Al-Tarrab and Karm Al-Jazmati quarters.

With the aforementioned quarters under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to clear the remaining territory west of the Aleppo International Airport, marking the first time since 2013 that the Syrian Air Force is able to use this large site.

The Syrian Armed Forces have now turned their attention to Mayssar, where they have already captured large chunks of this small district in east Aleppo.

Very pleasing map, as is to learn that there are only about 900 terrorists left in eastern Aleppo and that they finally let the civilians flee.
Due to how things are going, we will soon learn that there were many many less civilians under siege than the crapaganda said.

So that’s what, 40 to a mile long frontline? Then why is it taking the government so long, if they outnumber their enemy over 10 to 1? They should be able to take the whole thing in an afternoon!

That map needs enlarging but anyway, having that airport available is going to be huge; jets available from just 10km away from the frontline.
