Jabhat Al-Nusra (Al-Nusra Front) has launched a wave of attacks on the predominately Shi’i villages of Al-Zahra and Nubl, located in the vicinity of the rebel-held ‘Anadan District. The militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra have fired a barrage of indiscriminate mortar shells and rockets at these villages; this has resulted in the death of a number of civilians. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah forces have repelled the Jabhat Al-Nusra attack, but the fighting has yet to dissipate on the outskirts of Nubl.

Contingents from the Syrian Arab Army’s 2nd Army Corps have successfully cutoff the ‘Ahrar Al-Sham supply line to their positions at the Hanano Barracks. The SAA captured the area between Hanano Road and the Al-Jandoul Roundabout, forcing ‘Ahrar Al-Sham militants to retreat towards the western sector of the Hanano Barracks in order to reinforce their contingents against the 2nd Army Corps’ onslaught. Firefights are still ongoing at the Hanano Barracks, but for the first time in months, the SAA is advancing in this rebel-held area.

In the Ashrafiyya Quarter of Aleppo City, members of the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) continue to pound this area with mortar shells and rockets. According to a military source, the militants are specifically targeting the fuel tanks inside the Ashrafiyya Quarter that is being used by the Syrian Government to provide heat to civilians in the surrounding areas. The Islamic Front has been unsuccessful thus far; however, the civilians living inside Aleppo City continue to be deprived of running water and continuous electricity due militants disrupting these services.
