On Friday afternoon in the Aleppo Governorate’s northwestern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and several Iraqi paramilitary units – continued their push south towards the strategic city of ‘Anadan, striking the rebel defenses at the village of Al-Tannourah and the nearby Hayyan-Bayyanoun Industrial District.

The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies began their assault on Friday afternoon by targeting the front-line defenses of the extremist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra(Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) inside Al-Tannourah, killing several enemy combatants while attempting to seize the remaining territory under the latter’s control.

According to a military source from the 154th Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies control 70 percent of Al-Tannourah, leaving only the southern sector of the village under rebel control.

Meanwhile, east of Al-Tannourah, Hezbollah led the charge at the Hayyan-Bayyanoun Industrial District, where they were confronted by a large force comprised of Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham fighters – clashes have been reported throughout the night.

With the extremist rebels concentrating on west Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies attempted to take advantage of this and seize several sites.

Despite making minimal gains, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are in position to strike the imperative city of ‘Anadan in the coming weeks, as they press deeper into the rebel heartland.
