Aleppo, Syria (10:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah continued their southern Aleppo counter-offensive on Wednesday, targeting the remaining buildings under jihadist control at the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Republican Guard and Hezbollah attacked the southern sector of the 1070 Housing Project, resulting in a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) this morning that is still ongoing at the moment.

A military source told Al-Masdar on Wednesday morning that the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are pushing their way to the Hikmah School, which has been under the control of Jaysh Al-Fateh for nearly three weeks.

More importantly, as long as Jaysh Al-Fateh controls the Hikmah School, they will maintain their fire control over the southern buildings in the 1070 Housing Project.

While the Syrian Armed Forces continue their attack on the 1070 Housing Project, the Russian Air Force is carrying out several airstrikes over the Aleppo Artillery Academy.

This specific assault on the Aleppo Artillery Academy is meant to weaken the jihadist defenses, while paving the way for the Syrian Armed Forces to attack its eastern flank.

According to a senior officer in the Syrian Arab Army, reinforcements from the Republican Guard in Tartous have arrived at Al-Safira this morning; they are destined for the Artillery Academy area.

  1. Recently Russian Caspian Flotilla is in the southwest part of that sea, i.e. the location closest to Syria. Other Russian naval ships are conducting a live-fire exercise in the eastern Mediterranean off the Syrian coast. From both places they can easily fire “Kalibr” cruise missiles against targets at Syria.
    At the same time Russian Air Space Forces’ Tu-22M3 and Su-34 bombers from the Hamedan airbase (located in western Iran) already hit the targets in the provinces of Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor and Idlib.

  2. OK real talk:

    (A) How are airstrikes directed? Who gives coordinates and how does it work exactly? Does it always work with a spotter directing the aircraft?

    (B) How does a militant group know when to advance, how does it know when the others have abandoned and retreated from a building where in urban warefare you cant see shit and most of the time you are just hoping the bullets hit?

    I always wondered ….

    • your questions give the answers. You need a spotter. Americans fly e.g. two planes, one illuminates the target via laser and the other one flyes closer and releases the weapon. USA uses also a spoters on the ground, who illuminate the target with the laser from the ground. Russians use in those battles only the ground spotters. (the laser illumination is in invisible spectrum of light and is shot as implus in certain intervals)
      b) how? they coordinate via radio with other groups more people see more things. there is a command and they have to move, or their own military policemen (running in the “second wave” will shoot them, if they do not follow the orders. Never heared about it? deserters are being shot. On both sides.
