After extremely intense clashes in the Zahraa Quarter in west Aleppo and the Cement Plant in southwest Aleppo, the situation has calmed exponentially with the risk of escalation at any given moment.

So far today the following accurately describes the situation:

  1. Dozens of jihadists were killed by the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces in the Cement Plant following a calculated ambush that led the ‘inghimasi’ forces of Jabhat Fath Al-Sham and the Turkistani Islamic Party forces into a minefield. The area they were lured into was under the fire control of the Tiger Forces who mowed them down with all sorts of weapons.
  2. The Islamist major offensive that was led by Ahrar Al-Sham on the Family House axis in the Zahraa quarter was fully repelled after two failed VBIED bombings and approximately 60 militants killed. The Tank Commander of Ahrar Al-Sham ‘Saif Allah’ was killed in the clashes. Some analysts claimed that it was a diversion attack from the grinding southern fronts of Aleppo. However, it was too costly of a battle to be a diversionary assault.
  3. On the 1070 Project axis, units from the Syrian Army’s Special Forces secured an additional 25 building blocks. At minute 2:28, the location of the captured building blocks along with a map of the controlled areas of the neighborhood could be seen in the following video by Anna News.

Shithadists seem to be in dire straits : it’s clear that Erdogollum switched sides and that Turkey struck a deal with Assad, it’s not even a secret now, BTW, last week, SAA even shelled these so-called rebels inside of turkish territory without Turkey complaining, now, daeshbags are getting arrested in hospitals. Well, it’s clear that Gollum played all sides and is greatly responsible of all the s**t happening in Syria, now, he needs to cover his own a*s and the sunni shithadists will be used as fuses for this purpose. Well, nobody should trust Gollum, even his buddy shitlamists, if… Read more »

Reports from last week suggest the terrorists through literally their best with best equipment at breaking the siege and suffered between 30 to 50% casualties. Al-Nusra has no vangard anymore. Their elite spearhead was wiped out. Al-Nusra can’t can’t conduct offensive operations anymore. That’s why the attempt failed with so many casualties. They’re throwing new recruits at defended positions without armour.

There is much speculation as to SAA & rebel intentions here. The rebels themselves have to break the siege of east aleppo, this is almost impossible from mallah farms. In theory, the rebels are using massive forces in an area where the government is quite weak, inexperienced, and dependent upon to supply W aleppo. The attack itself is, as you said, highly risky due to the small corridor and use of their best troops in a dangerous location. The rebels need to expand rapidly such that they can secure the corridor and put the government under pressure. The government on… Read more »
