The long-awaited Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) offensive in the Aleppo Governorate has just commenced after several weeks of limited military activity.

Jaysh Al-Fateh launched this new offensive at two different fronts on Sunday morning after a fierce artillery exchange with the government forces these past two days.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, Jaysh Al-Fateh attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses near the Al-Castillo Highway, resulting in an intense battle that is still ongoing.

The primary objective of this jihadi attack on the Al-Castillo Highway is to lift the one week-long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of the Aleppo Governorate.

In addition to the battle taking place at the Al-Castillo Highway, Jaysh Al-Fateh began a major push in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate to recapture the key village of Al-Hadher – so far no gains have been reported.

The Russian Air Force has joined the battle in the Aleppo Governorate, as they aim to help drive back the jihadist rebels from the government controlled areas.

The SAA always buckles under pressure (Latakia, the absolute embarrassment that was the unprecedented retreat in South Aleppo) so I expect both offensives to succeed.

Both times you speak of are after the SAA had sent many men from those areas to fight ISIS. Raqqa offensive and northern Aleppo offensive. You have been witnessing a huge shift in this war since Nov 2015. All of the Dara area will be reconciling with government.

How completely random, thanks for the history lesson, I knew all of that though, I don’t see how any of that has to do with what I typed, which is of how weak the SAA is, as proven by the gigantic rebel gains over the last day and a half.

Some of them held out for years, and ISIS has never managed to capture Deir-es-Zor.

Don’t be a d**k, my point’s valid, they cave easily from a far weaker enemy, one with no airforce.
