Aleppo, Syria (5:45 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched a major offensive last week to lift the three-week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City.
This southern Aleppo offensive would yield a significant number of gains for Jaysh Al-Fateh, as they seized several sites from the Syrian Armed Forces, including the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, Al-Ramouseh District, and Aleppo Artillery Academy.
Despite making great progress in the southern sector of Aleppo City, Jaysh Al-Fateh has been unable to resupply the eastern neighborhoods of the provincial capital.
The reason Jaysh Al-Fateh cannot resupply east Aleppo is due to the Syrian Arab Army’s fire control over the main road that leads from the Al-Ramouseh District to the eastern neighborhoods.
As long as the Syrian Arab Army and their allies maintain control over the 3000 Housing Project, the jihadist rebels will be unable to use Ramouseh Road due to security concerns.
