The jihadist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) reportedly repelled the Syrian government’s offensive in northern Aleppo on Thursday after the latter launched two different assaults at the same location.

The first attack was conducted by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) at the Mallah Farms; this assault was foiled by the jihadists rebels after they seized a government BMP.

Following the first assault by Liwaa Al-Quds and the National Defense Forces, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” launched their attack at the Al-Mallah Farms in northern Aleppo, where they were able to capture the southern flank of this rural area.

However, as dusk approached Aleppo on Thursday, the Tiger Forces pulled out of the Al-Mallah Farms and withdrew south towards the provincial capital.

The Tiger Forces media wing mentioned that this was an attack to test the enemy defenses in the area; they allegedly did not seek to capture the Al-Mallah Farms.

The NDF are about as much use as a t**d on a stick! Send them back home, they are incompetent cannon fodder, and quite why they are sent in first to only lose a BMP is beyond stupid. And where the f**k was the air support.

Turkey has send reinforcements, weapons and even some special forces into the area, but without air support, it’s just a matter of time for them to wear down and fall…Rusia has commited to mak meore air raids in the area as soon as the pacted truce with ” moderates” ends, so, I think, the advances will start to be seen within a week…

In an otherwise brilliant campaign, the decision to remove most of the Russian aircraft and forces was the first bad move by Putin. His next mistake was allowing 7,000 jihadists and their equipment to enter Idlib unopposed. These miscalculations have proven to be a complete disaster that has cost the lives of hundreds of soldiers and the loss of several critical towns in Aleppo. Now they are overwhelming government forces in battle after battle. Let’s be honest, The two attacks today (in the optimum location) were not “to test the enemy defenses”. The government forces were beaten on the battlefield.… Read more »
