On Tuesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Liwaa Al-Quds – carried out a fierce assault on the militants from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham at the Al-Bureijj District in northeast Aleppo, killing 17 enemy combatants, while also seizing a large cache of weapons the from the militants.

As a result of this powerful assault, the SAA and their allies were able to advance their positions at the Al-Bureijj District for the first time since Fall of 2014; this attack was coupled with the Syrian Armed Forces assaulting the Stone Quarries located near this district.

To counter, Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen attacked the NDF and Al-Ba’ath Battalions at the villages of Duwayr Al-Zeitoun and Bashkoy in northeast Aleppo, where they attempted to break-through the latter’s frontline defenses from nearby Rityan and Hardatineen; this assault was forestalled by the Syrian Armed Forces.

Clashes are still ongoing at Bashkoy and Duwayr Al-Zeitoun, as the Syrian Armed Forces attempt to force the enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen to withdraw west towards Rityan.

Jabhat Al-Nusra attempted to breach the SAA’s frontline defenses at the Great Prophet Mosque in the Al-Zahra Association Quarter of west Aleppo; however, the attack was repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces.

In southern Aleppo, the NDF – in coordination with the Al-Ba’ath Battalions – took control of three building blocks at the Al-‘Amariyah Quarter after engaging Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham in a violent firefight on Tuesday morning.
