Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division –in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), Kataeb Hezbollah (Iraqi paramilitary), and Firqa Fatayyemoun – launched a counter-assault in the Khan Touman area, striking the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki at the northeastern perimeter of the city.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division and their allies were able to break-through Jabhat Al-Nusra’s frontline defenses after a series of intense firefights that resulted in the pro-government forces reentering the strategic city of Khan Touman; this aforementioned city is located along the imperative Aleppo-Damascus Highway.

Following their entrance into Khan Touman, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division and their allies seized several points at the east district of the city, killing several enemy combatants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jabhat Al-Nusra, while also destroying a confirmed 3 armored vehicles that were mounted with a variety of anti-aircraft machine guns.

With their reentry into Khan Touman, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies appear poised to seize this integral city after almost taking full control of it last month when they made a big push from the village of Al-Qarassi.

Recently, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jabhat Al-Nusra conducted their own offensive last week that resulted in the recapture of the ICARDA facility and several other sites before the Syrian Army forestalled this assault.
