BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:55 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has kicked off the next phase of their offensive in southern Aleppo, targeting the last towns near the eastern railway.

Led by the 124th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Army stormed the towns of Al-Malameh and Atshana Al-Sharqiyah in a bid to expel Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham from this important area.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army has captured the aforementioned towns, putting them within striking distance of the eastern railway in southern Aleppo.

The source added that only 5 towns remain before the Syrian Army clears the entire area of jihadist rebels.

This latest offensive by the Syrian Army comes just 24 hours after the Turkish military attempted to move their convoy to the southern countryside of Aleppo.
