Aleppo, Syria (10:15 A.M.) – As of 4 A.M. on Saturday morning, the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) have been full control of the Aleppo Artillery Base, marking a successful conclusion to the third phase of their large-scale offensive.
According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces were unable to maintain their last line of defense after Jaysh Al-Fateh launched several VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) attacks at the southern perimeter of the base.
With the Artillery Base under their control, the jihadist rebels are now in position to lift the three week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of the provincial capital.
In addition to seizing the base, the jihadist rebels have also captured a large cache of ammunition that was left by the Syrian Armed Forces at this imperative military installation on Saturday morning.
The Russian Air Force is now bombing the Aleppo Artillery Base in order to stop the jihadist rebels from fortifying their positions.
