The Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – alongside Hezbollah (both Syrian and Lebanese), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and several Iraqi paramilitary units – are steadily advancing through the northern Aleppo countryside, capturing several sites from the Islamist rebels this morning after the ceasefire agreement in Munich was announced by the U.S. and Russia.

According to a local military source in northern Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies imposed full control over the Tannourah Quarries after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

With the Tannourah Quarries under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are now in position to strike Tal Al-Souda (hilltop northwest of Bayyanoun), Tannourah village (south of the quarries), and ‘Araymah (east of the quarries and west of Bayyanoun) on Mount Simeon in northwestern Aleppo.

As a result of capturing the Tannourah Quarries; this military operation marks the first time in 3.5 years that the Syrian Armed Forces have reentered Mount Simeon in the northwestern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

Mount Simeon is an imperative part Aleppo because of its proximity to the Turkish border with the Hatay Province.

So basicly just an area from where not Bayanoon, but just hilltops around Bayanoon CAN be captured? What is going wrong for SAA? Why this huge loss of momentum with just TEN days left before cease fire?
