Jihadist rebels continue, for the third day, their wide-scale offensive in southern Aleppo aimed to lift the siege on the districts they control in the eastern parts of the embattled city.

Today’s battles have, so far, granted the insurgents full control on Sawmills area in Minyan following fierce battles with the government troops; now holed up at the adjacent Cardboard factory.

In Ramouseh district, several Army troops were reported dead when the hardline militants in Sukkari district detonated a tunnel under a building used as a barrack.

Pro-rebel accounts on social media claimed that dozens of Army soldiers, including officers, have been captured by the jihadists in Ramouseh. Al Masdar News could not verify the authenticity of these claims.

A military source told Al Masdar News that the whole Ramouseh district is now being attacked by rebel rockets

“A homegrown rocket also hit the perimeter of the Assad Military Academy. Only material damage reported”, he added.

According to the State-run news agency SANA, 6 civilians have been killed, 11 others injured as Islamist rebels shelled a government-held neighborhood with rockets filled with toxic gas.

Why in the h**l didn’t Russia keep the fight going when they had these terrorists on the run? Instead they “negotiate” with the lying United States who stall to re-arm the terrorists. Can Russia really be that gullible?

Sytian front liners call HQ and say “we are in carboard factory; enemy is in factory to our west or nort”; then HQ gives coordinates to RuAF who come by with 2 Aircraft and deliver 4 KAB-1500 on top of thos buildings. That militant wave is done and counter attack can ensue. Also; SAA troopers can use yellow smoke to help pilots see where militants are causing trouble. A mere “100 m west of smoke” is giod enough for AF to focus in on.

One thing about militants and those supporting them: they care little about “col. damage” and go all out targetting everything in non friendly zone. This may cost Syrians greatly, as it gives militants huge advantage.

If Assad had decided to take the COIN/Gunship aircrafts way, they’d all be finished for long. And Russia+EU should HIGHLY consider it, and FAST.
SyAAF has shrank too much to be effective and, anyway, fast flying jets or not what you need for CAS, and over expensive. You need to loiter & swarm from the air and interdict huge areas… You’ll just call jets when you need to drop 4 KAB1500 on a building or some fat thermobarics…

FYI, SyAAF, has indeed shrunk in size, but they are MUCH MUCH more effective, technical, and better equipped than before. ALL their jets got major upgrades, and FYI majority of sorties being flown lately is SuAAF
