DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has made several advances inside the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo today, capturing approximately 40-45 percent of the last jihadist pocket in the provincial capital.

Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture the Sheikh Fares, Haydariyah, and Al-Sakhour districts of east Aleppo today after overrunning the jihadist rebels in the northern pocket of this contested region.

Following the capture of those aforementioned districts, the Syrian Armed Forces seized the Scientific Research Facility in the Jabal Badro area, killing a dozen militants before continuing their advance westward.

Northwest of Jabal Badro, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard, alongside Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), launched their first attack on the Ma’asaraniyah Youth Housing Complex near the ‘Ard Al-Hamra District.

Despite reports of the Syrian Armed Forces capturing the Youth Housing Complex, Al-Masdar News was notified by an army source that this claim is untrue at the moment.

Meanwhile, at the Sheikh Lufti axis, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and Liwaa Al-Quds are attempting to capture this key district located at the southeastern part of this Aleppo pocket – no significant gains as of yet.

With the battle for east Aleppo heating up, the Syrian Armed Forces expect stronger resistance from the jihadist rebels; especially, in the Marjeh, Mayassar, and Sheikh Sa’eed districts.

I’m surprised that Erdogan hasn’t expressed himself about the last 48 hours events.
Well, we can begin to organise the return of the refugee into Syria. There might be huge job creations due to rebuilding. Maybe should we freeze Saudi, Turkish and Qatari accounts in order to fund the rebuilding…
Now Assad should also contact Gollum to tel him : “nice from you to have taken good care of all Aleppo’s industries machineries thus, now, you have to send these all back or replace ’em by new ones. Know your place!”

I fully concur with freezing the accounts of all those who have fermented the barbaric unrest in Syria and Iraq. Perhaps refuse to buy their oil, gas and other good as well. The downside of that would of course be the potential for DAESH/AlNusra Et Al to take over those countries. However the sight of Saudi and Qatari heads on poles would somewhat soften the blow 🙂

Mind you, for this to happen fantasy bubble of the EU plutocrats would need to burst together with their useful idiot Eurocrat Autocrats and for saner minds to come to power.
