Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in coordination with Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – launched a fresh offensive assault in the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside, targeting the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen’s positions at the Al-Malaah Farms.

According to a military source in the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are specifically targeting Jabhat Al-Nusra’s missile site that is the primary source for the rockets/missiles fired into the northern suburbs of Al-‘Aziziyeh, Al-Ashrafiyeh, Suleimaniyeh, and Al-Khalidiyeh.

The military source added that this operation is currently ongoing and will seek to dismantle Jabhat Al-Nusra’s capabilities to inflict terror on the densely populated neighborhoods of Aleppo City; these  indiscriminate rockets/missiles and hell-fire cannons launched towards the provincial capital has become a daily occurrence as the Islamist rebels continue to lose ground all over the province.

Mazra’a Al-Malaah (Al-Malaah Farms) are strategically located west of the Syrian Government held town of Handarat and east of the rebel stronghold of Haritan; if the Syrian Armed Forces want to attack the Islamist rebels in west Aleppo, this is the gateway to that front.

The terrorists seeking to dismantle orderly society in Syria will be defeated. With the help of Russian air power, their days are numbered. No amount of CIA or Mossad satellite intelligence can save them now. Realizing that they are being abandoned by the West, they will lash out at their enablers as punishment. The imminent demise of those Sunni head choppers will cause much anxiety in Gulf capitols, probably leading to escalation and open conflict in areas not yet at war.
