Aleppo, Syria (11:45 P.M.) – Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) managed to recapture all of the points they lost to the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies on Thursday after a fierce battle that lasted several hours.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed by Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba, seized the key town of Al-Qarassi on Thursday morning, along with ‘Amarah village and Tal Jamiyat.

However, the jihadist rebels launched a quick counter-offensive before the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies could fortify their positions; this would prove to be vital for Jaysh Al-Fateh, as they quickly reversed their losses.

The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies will likely make another attempt to capture Al-Qarassi in the coming days, as they look to alleviate the pressure applied by Jaysh Al-Fateh on the southern Aleppo districts.

what happened to almost 100 years old artillery barrage fire? It could stop any infantry attack.

They are suicide squads, they have enough of them.
They come from all over, and the ones who survive get still treated in Turkish and Israeli hospitals. While the SAA is a draftee army, do you see the difference ?

Quick counter attacks are paramount. Nevertheless; kudos to Syrian defenders making the advances in the first place.
