DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:40 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab are completely surrounded and facing a crushing defeat in east Aleppo after losing more than 45 percent of the territory they controlled last week.

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of this imminent defeat for the jihadist rebels is the velocity at which they have lost these east Aleppo districts to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies.

District after district have fallen to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), forcing the jihadist rebels to rapidly retreat south in order to avoid being overrun and outflanked by the pressing forces in eastern Aleppo.

On Monday morning, the jihadist rebels suffered another string of defeats at the hands of the government forces, resulting in the capture of the entire northern pocket of east Aleppo.

According to a military source in Aleppo City, the Syrian Arab Army has captured all of the districts that border Sakour’s northern and eastern axes after a swift assault this morning.

With the northern part captured, the Syrian Armed Forces can now turn their attention to the last half of the east Aleppo pocket; this will arguably the most difficult battle they face inside the provincial capital.

I thought it would go fast now but not as fast as it went since the beginning of the WE. Thus, who knows, maybe some areas can be taken very fast too, i.e. the Bab an-Nayrab or the triangle between Sakkari and Sheikh Saeed, the last district could be taken in a pincher movement.. The Guardian tittles : “Syrian rebel forces in Aleppo suffer ‘biggest defeat since 2012’ ” Thus, they keep on relying on the dubious SOHR as source. Thus, considering the speed of the advance and the size of the swath of land taken, we can assume few… Read more »

Had the major news outlets been doing their jobs correctly then the rise in alternative media that they are complaining about right now would never have happened. But MSM has shown itself to be dead wrong on so many important issues (and not just wrong with some minor mistakes, but with humongous and important mistakes) that most people question what they report (and rightfully so).

Is “thus” your word of the day lol?

With militants and civilians now clustered in the remaining area, casualties for the SAA and civilians could be quite high, so I bet that they’ll bus the militants out. Which is a very bad idea at the same time, with so many posing a big threat. Tough to say what should and will happen but then again, half of the entire pocket was crushed in 2 days, with presumably minimal casualties, so who knows.
