Jihadi groups in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo announced a new full-scale offensive against government troops in Al-Zahraa district in the city’s west.

The attack was initiated with jihadists heavily shelling the area with artillery, tanks and homegrown Hell canons. This was followed by sending a remote-controlled VBIED which aimed at destroying the Army’s defense lines.

However, a military source confirmed that the booby-trapped vehicle was prematurely destroyed before reaching its target.

Pro-rebel social media accounts claimed that jihadists were capable of seizing a small area, nearly the water storage facility and Mahna housing.

The incompetent defenders cannot stop a single truck coming slowly towards them. Aleppo is bound to collapse and Erdoghan will rule over it.

It’s sad but Aleppo’s battle is lost and SAA will never military win this war.

Very dubious conclusion for an offensive with 3 “road-missiles”… Let’s be clear : there’s no real way to win a war without (serious) air-superiority. The only cases where it worked weren’t military victories at all : in the cases of both Vietnam and Afghanistan, it was due to both USA and Soviet Union internal issues… And I continue to consider Assad should have gone the COIN-aircrafts and Gunship way : he even wouldn’t need the VKS (RuAF) help if he had done it. It’s not without reason that the US will have doubled their number of gunship until 2020 and… Read more »

They ask for russian weapos such as jets and tanks next time ? Tired of those automatic parrot frases. Sometimes they look more like excuses from hooligans. I have been looking reasonly very much. They use any weapon, they can get. Kalasnikovs are western arms – russian RPG`s. Old serbish handgrenates. Many weapons are also older but unused weapons from old Warzaw pact or produced by licence – probatly could be Yougoslavia. And true. They have many western arms. But Nusra-Rebels has many donaters incl. Turks and around the Arab peninsula. You ignore again and again, that Assad and the… Read more »

The reason for the ‘situation’ is the Assad regime’s refusal to allow an Arab/Israeli gas pipeline to transit its territory. The involvement of so many jihadists comes as no surprise, especially to those that created, armed, and financed most of the terrorists operating in Syria today.
