Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched a large-scale offensive inside Aleppo City on Sunday morning that targeted the southern and northern districts under the government’s control.

The purpose of this massive jihadist offensive was to lift the two-week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City; however, this has not been achieved as of yet.

Jaysh Al-Fateh did make a considerable number of gains on Sunday, capturing the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, Al-‘Amariyah District, and the Hikmah School after a violent battle with the Syrian Armed Forces.

On Monday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces struck back against the jihadist rebels, firing a barrage of artillery shells and missiles towards their positions, while also attempting to recover the sites they lost yesterday.

According to the Aleppo-based journalist, Kinana Alloush, the Syrian Armed Forces cutoff the road between the Hikmah School and 1070 Housing Project, leaving Jaysh Al-Fateh besieged at the aforementioned site (this has not been confirmed by the Syrian Army).

Meanwhile, at the Sabiqiyah District, the Syrian Armed Forces repelled a major attack by the jihadist rebels, killing a large number of enemy combatants before securing all flanks.

The Russian Air Force is working overtime today, carrying out a significant number of airstrikes on the southern districts of Aleppo city.

A senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar News on Monday morning that the Russians have destroyed at least 4 armored vehicles near the Hikmah School in the last 2 hours.

Clashes are still ongoing between the opposing parties in southern Aleppo; however, the Syrian Armed Forces have taken the initiative to recapture the territory they lost.

Leith does not care for accurate reporting it seems. So many times he has been corrected on the different forms of parachute bombs and bunker busters, as well as keeps calling turkistan islamic party of syria the turkmen brigades – one is uyghur the other turkic people, they are very different though they do form part of the same coalition of jaysh al fatah / fatah halab in some parts.

In case you wouldn’t know, Syria is ally to Iraq and Iran, this is the shia crescant mutual help. Syria is ally to Russia too, so they’re not mercenaries, they’re guest stars 🙂
FSA, IS, al-Nusra, Jaysh al fucktards etc etc are mostly constituted of foreign mercenaries and foreign low IQ morons they use as cannon fodder…

I could be wrong but I think the ultra rich are trying to overthrow any country that doesn’t have their banks. Look at Ukraine’s multiple color reveloutions, and Libya is the perfect example of a successful mid east country destroy by the west/Saudi Arabia /Israel. Their trying to do the same with Syria and Yemen but it’s not so easy this time, and these rebels are the same rebels that took ghaddafi out?

look up for M40. Very old and simple weapon, but lot of armies (Egypt, Turkey, Greece in that part of the world) still use it. as it is relatively cheap to operate and maintain and very fine for training, live shooting. However, dangerous for the crew except the one, who triggers the weapon. Being still used for training of young soldiers in Austria or Switzerland for example.

M40 from WWII still common weapon in the whole world.
Basically its main purpose is antitank gun.

The VBIEDs explosions from the initial attack were impressive, probably several tons of fertilizer.
Seems the goatfuckers love pollution : they are really burning a lot of tires.
There’s a good way to get rid of petroleum derivated products fires, I was told buy a guy who used to stop derrick fires : a good explosion blowing it…
Time to use good old methods although radars can make pictures through the fog : carpet bombings 🙂
