Minutes ago inside the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, the U.S. backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) – alongside the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units (YPG) – imposed full control over the Younis Al-Saba’wi School and Jama’ Al-Istaqmat in the Al-Ashrafiyah District after a violent battle with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen.
In addition to capturing the two aforementioned sites, Jaysh Al-Thuwwar of the SDF captured several building blocks from the extremist rebel forces in the northern sector of the Al-Ashrafiyah District.
This successful counter-attack by the Syrian Democratic Forces comes just two days after the extremist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki attempted to recapture the Youth Housing Complex in the Bani Zayd District.
The Syrian Democratic Forces were backed by the Russian Air Forces this morning; these airstrikes provided the rebel forces with much needed cover against the extremists hiding in the condensed areas of Aleppo City.
Yesterday, the YPG and their allies captured the Salehiddeen Mosque in the Bani Zayd District after a 48 hour long battle that started with the extremist rebels attempting to retake the Youth Housing Complex.
