ALEPPO, SYRIA (12:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) have begun their long-awaited offensive to lift the siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City.

Launching 3 VBIEDs (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) in the western and southwestern neighborhoods of Aleppo, Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and their allies attempted to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the Dahiyat Al-Assad, Minyan, and 1070 districts.

Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham claimed control of the Minyan Sawmills and Al-Surah Checkpoint after scoring a direct hit with their suicide attack.

Intense clashes are now taking place at several axes in western Aleppo, as the groups in Jaysh Al-Fateh attempt to lift the two month long siege on the eastern neighborhoods.

At the same time this assault in the west began, another group of jihadist rebels launched a powerful attack in northwestern Aleppo, targeting the Al-Layramoun District and Al-Malaah Farms under the Syrian Arab Army’s control – no gains have been reported yet.
