BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) launched a surprise offensive in the northern outskits of Aleppo City on Monday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near the Al-Malaah Farms.

Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham began the attack by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s checkpoints near the western part of the Al-Malaah Farms; this resulted in a series of clashes that lasted for only two hours on Monday.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army foiled the jihadist offensive, killing a dozen enemy combatants that tried to infiltrate their points in the Al-Malaah area.

The military source added that the militants used the current ceasefire in the Aleppo Governorate to build-up their forces around Haritan’s eastern perimeter; this is where they attacked from.

Ex-Nusra is not part of any truce. So the military source that added that the militants used the current ceasefire talks MSM style bullshit.

This could be a probing attack, to see how SAA would respond. There may be more serious attacks coming. Russia announcing drawing down of its AF in Syria is a wrong tactic and an even worse message to send. Instead, it should deploy additional AF assets to enforce the cease fire, break enemy resolve, and help SAA morale, just by being there. Remedying the situation in DZ will mainly depend on ruasf and it ability to coordinate with saa in DZ pockets and precision strike enemy forward positions, in near proximity to SAA positions, like in Jairiya neighborhood.
