Aleppo, Syria (4:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) announced on Sunday the next phase of their Aleppo City offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies.

According to the statement released by Jaysh Al-Fateh, their forces will begin an offensive to capture all of Aleppo City, marking the inception of their second large-scale operation to seize a Syrian provincial capital.

This latest announcement by Jaysh Al-Fateh comes just two days after their jihadists lifted the three-week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City.

In response to this jihadist announcement, the Syrian Army’s High Command has sent necessary reinforcements from the western countryside of Hama to the provincial capital of Aleppo.

The majority of these reinforcements are members of the National Defense Forces (NDF), a pro-government paramilitary group that operates in conjunction with the Syrian Arab Army and their allies.

Not to be outdone, the jihadist rebels also sent a large convoy of reinforcements to Aleppo City on Sunday, as they prepare to storm the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses.

“The majority of these reinforcements are members of the National Defense Forces (NDF)” – might as well put the white flag up!

Look, if they do not care about their own country, let them lose the war. Am I going to stress over this? Surely no.

clearly they are encouraged by their victory which was achieved much earlier and easier than expected

What victory?..to take abandoned air artillery base while they have been lost Damascus,Dara and latakia?…terrorist dont have air force and air defense..so its a matter of time that they cannot keep a safe corridor to supply 600.000 east parts people.

They have the artillery base with huge amount of munition so situation is critical. Probably they also have their agents inside Aleppo City and even among Syrian soldiers. I’m not any expert but in my opinion the whole operation is running by Mossad and the CIA. Russians and Syrians underestimated the enemy. This is not spontaneous “revolution”, this is well planned and organized action aimed at partitioning of Syria (and Iraq too).

Well can they do that and gain anything.

If they are as tuff as they were making a new door, it should be possible to cut off the eastern lifeline for the Assads. Might help if ISIS gave a small hand.

And my oppinion. Everybody should go home and give all their weapons to women and children and let them shoot anyone, they dont like.

After that, all the more peacefull ones could return and make the rest of the world happy too.

I dont understand how these idiots cant defend their positions when they have one of the most powerful airforce bombing jihadists non – stop. Basically, everything is on their side but they still cant fight.

“This latest announcement by Jaysh Al-Fateh comes just two days after their jihadists lifted the three-week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City.”

So you finally admit that they broke the siege, which you haven’t reported at all, your journalists staunchly denied this repeatedly. We don’t come here for propaganda, to ignore the failures of the SAA, we come here for NEWS, good and bad. This is why I stopped going to Al Manar and the like.

They reported everything. There are 2 kinds of breaking siege: First, a land connection from outside and second a safe supply route without enemy fire control. The second kind of siege is not broken (comes perhaps today, dont know).
