Aleppo, Syria (3:30 A.M.) – Day 6 of the jihadist offensive in the southern districts of Aleppo City turned out to be a tug-of-war match between Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), as they both exchanged a number of small offensives inside the provincial capital.
The day began with Jaysh Al-Fateh launching an offensive that managed to yield them a small advance at Al-‘Amariyah; however, their main attack at Al-Ramouseh was repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces after a 90 minute battle.
Following the first jihadist offensive on Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army launched their own series of attacks on the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Complex, but they were unable to infiltrate Jaysh Al-Fateh’s main line of defense.
Video footage from Thursday’s battle showed the sheer intensity of the firefights taking place between Jaysh Al-Fateh and the Syrian Armed Forces:
Small skirmishes are still ongoing, despite the coming 4th phase of the Jaysh Al-Fateh offensive.
