Jihadi fighters seized, today, a strategic hilltop in southwestern Aleppo following fierce battles with government troops, thus concluding what they called the ‘first phase’ of the attack.

The jihadist gains are part of a wide-scale offensive which was launched yesterday to lift the two-week long siege on rebel-held districts of the city.

Al-Mushrifah hilltop is situated less than 1300 meters from the Artillery School of Ramouseh; the last and most fortified defense line for the Syrian Army.

A military source told Al-Masdar News that jihadi fighters are attempting to break into the Artillery School from two frontlines; Al-Mushrifah hilltop and 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project. No progress has been been made so far.

In a related context, at least 1 college student was killed, 12 others wounded as rebel rocket attack hit Science Faculty in Aleppo.

The are not “jihadi fighters” they are Israeli proxy-fighters. If Mossad has its own agents inside Syrian Army, they are working hard too. Perhaps this is a clue.

Russian Mod : 800 shithadists killed 14 tanks, 10 APCs and 60 ‘technicals’ destroyed since the begining of the offensive. Well, it looks like a nice kill-zone. Seems that, as it was already the case during the 1991 Gulf-War, petroleum matters’ smoke doesn’t works against targeting systems… Even the french cyber-rifle sees through fog and smoke so, aircrafts being able to carry much heavier systems, well, except polluting the whole area, it won’t work at all… In fact, if the Vietnam war happened today, jungle wouldn’t be a coverage anymore and there are even ways to see thru walls… Well,… Read more »

Ahrar Sham claim 80 killed from SAA & allies, 7 vehicles destroyed, 9 locations captured & spoils/booty. I have no scores by SAA but the russian score is… well… Like the russians know how to do since forever 🙂 I’d love our air-force to help the RuAF and SyAAF : I make no difference between Qaeda, Daesh and any other takfiris, all are heads from the same hydra and well, nonetheless we ave to cut them all, but it’s high time to strike the heart of the hydra too, I even consider there are several hydras. If we want it… Read more »
