Reports have emerged this morning of a large Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) force amassing in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate in order to continue their long-awaited offensive at Al-Hadher.

A source from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) confirmed to Al-Masdar on Thursday morning that Jaysh Al-Fateh is indeed preparing for a massive offensive in both southern and western Aleppo.

These jihadist offensives are meant to alleviate the pressure applied by the Syrian Arab Army on the northern districts of Aleppo City; however, this is likely too late after the government forces seized almost all of the key Bani Za’id Quarter on Wednesday.

Jaysh Al-Fateh’s primary target will be the strategic hilltop village of Al-Hadher, which has been under the Syrian Arab Army’s control since January; it has been heavily fortified since then.

Previously, Jaysh Al-Fateh mobilized a large force to capture Tal Al-‘Eis and its surrounding villages in May; but, this will be a different battle because Hezbollah and the Iraqi paramilitary units are no longer spread across Aleppo.

The date for this upcoming offensive is still unknown.

The newely acquired SyAF Su-24M2 aircraft are a perfect platform to exploit the amassment of jihadi suicidals in S. Aleppo. I would very much appreciate to see SyAF utilizing KAB-500OD, a TV guided thermobaric variant, with explosive yield equalling 150 kg of HE; as well as its big bro KAB-1500OD with yield equalling that of 650 kg of HE. Cmon SyAF; let the world see the application of KAB500 and especially KAB-1500.
