ALEPPO, SYRIA (6:30 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 800th Regiment of the Republican Guard, backed by the Ba’ath Battalions and Hezbollah, launched their second attack on the southern districts of Aleppo, striking the jihadist rebels at Sheikh Sa’eed and the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.
Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah continued where they left off last night, advancing eastward inside the Sheikh Sa’eed District, despite fierce resistance from Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).
According to preliminary reports from southern Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah managed to capture an important hilltop inside Sheikh Sa’eed after an intense battle with the jihadist rebels.
The hill was identified by a Syrian field journalist as Tal Sheikh Sa’eed, which is considered one of the most important sites inside the district.
Meanwhile, at the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are attempting to capture the remaining building blocks under jihadist control.
Thus far, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have managed to capture a few buildings in the 1070 Housing Project; however, they have yet to seize something significant inside this district.
