The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division began the second round of their offensive in northern Aleppo tonight after a series of violent battles on Saturday morning.

According to local media correspondents, the Syrian Armed Forces are storming the jihadist rebel defenses at the Al-Layramoun, Al-Khalidiyah, Bani Zayd, and Al-Zahra districts of Aleppo City.

While the Syrian Army attempts to advance on the ground, the Russian Air Force is providing necessary air cover over several sites in northern Aleppo.

Fighting alongside the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division are several pro-government militias, which include Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and the National Defense Forces (NDF).

The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” are absent from today’s battle, despite the fact they make up one of the largest units in northern Aleppo.

I think the Syrian army forces will capture Aleppo this time because terrorists are on run and they will not much with 4th division power. This division is known for toughest and hardest fight which could weaknesses the terrorists inside Aleppo and after Aleppo they will march to Raqqa and get terrorists out from Syria land. The whole world will be free and thanks to fourth division.

In the real world a ‘Division’ has about 10,000 men. How many men are in a Syrian Division ? Its seems a lot less to me. Possibly only 500 men. Or even less.
