On Monday, the extremist rebel factions “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and “Jund Al-Aqsa” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) launched a joint offensive in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, targeting the villages surrounding Tal Al-‘Eiss near the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).

According to preliminary reports from social media activists in support of the Syrian opposition, Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jund Al-Aqsa have captured the hilltops of Tal SyriaTel and Tal Qinsarin after a fierce battle with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary).

The aforementioned hilltops are located directly north of Banes, which is another important villages that is located near Tal Al-‘Eiss in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside.

This recent assault by Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jund Al-Aqsa in southern Aleppo is the first offense that these groups have launched since December 2015.

Seems like the cease fire is working for the interests of the Saudis, Turks, USA, NATO. The terrorists are able to regroup and get supplies to launch new attacks. They had been retreating since the Russian air campaign. Forget the cease fire, Syria and Russia, keep bombing ALL terrorists until Syria is free of them.
