The Syrian Army’ elite tiger forces, backed by Syrian and Russian airstrikes, made a significant progress in Malah Farms in southern Aleppo, capturing the al-Asamat area following fierce battles with the Islamist militants.

Al-Masdar News’ reporter accompanying the campaign underlined the peculiarity of the battles with the militants moving through a complex network of well-equipped and highly-entrenched tunnels.

The Turkish-backed rebels desperately seek to maintain their control on Malah area as it bears a strategic importance being a main supply route into the rebel-held districts of Aleppo.

You can use some Earthquake bombs too or… serious fuel-air like the FOAB : this is pretty nasty against bunkers etc as it will consume all the oxygen around and so, create a serious vacuum so, first, you’ve got a gigantic explosion followed by an as gigantic implosion, this is not tunnel/bunker friendly at all..

Clear! Israelis use it : Hamas is getting completely mad with it…
A very dirty trick to do : using a tank or truck engines then fill the tunnels with the gasses from the engines… Absolutely nasty : they go out or suffocate…

filling with hydrogen or any non smelling detonating gas can be interesting too, but more risky
