The Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces successfully recaptured the southern parts of Mallah Farms in Aleppo’s northern outskirts, inching closer to the Castello Road, the main supply route to the rebel-held districts of Aleppo.

Ferocious battles broke out this early morning with heavy artillery and short-range rockets, aided by Russian airstrikes, before infantry troops marched on, positioning itself some 1 km from the Castello road.

A military source confirmed to Al-Masdar News that the main supply route has been totally cut off with every inch of it now under the Army’s firepower.

“Huge numbers of militants were killed and injured, while the rest fled the battleground before being completely besieged by the Army”, the source added, “all rebels reinforcements intended for Mallah battlefield have been literally wiped out; thanks to Russian airstrikes”.

The Farms bears a strategic importance as it overlooks the Castello route and other militant-held bastions in Mseibin to the north and Hritan to the west.

The Castello road has been and last and only lifeline for Aleppo Islamist factions – including al-Qaeda Syrian branch – through which they received weapons, ammunition and reinforcements.

I have heard good news including the term “we now have firecontrol” too often to be hyped yet.

Still waiting for the islamists counter attack to reverse all gains. That will happen at the latest when Tiger Forces will be deployed somewhere else.

Thank you for these videos Amin! I watched both of them. To complete the picture you may want to look at this too:

I now understand, the true Muslims are:
– extreamely feeble minded
– extreamely manipulative (and not good at it)
– have no idea where Islam is originated from
– totally ignorant about the world around them
Thank you again, be assured I have a clear picture now!

None of you understood what he said (just one Sunnie) because you did not like to. All he wants to say is that God is one but not limited. Finished.

ANOTHER OPTION. IT IS SPLICED WITH ALEPPO THROUGH THE KURDISH DISTRICT. IT WOULD BE MORE SIMPLE. I HOPE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND

Yes, but the kurds may not like the idea to have their many civilians shelled by the shithadists.

Good news but the place should now be heavily fortified and gunships close by to give fire support when required. Expect daily counterattacks like deirezzor organized by terrorists and their backer intel agencies.

I hope that SAA and allies got enough forces and supplies in place to finish that campaign in the same way as when they cut-off Azaz border crossing from Aleppo. Now those positions are entrenched in cooperation with YPG.
