BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab and Jaysh Al-Fatah launched a massive counter-offensive in east Aleppo this morning after spending nearly two weeks on the defensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
Fatah Halab militants began the counter-offensive on Monday by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the Mayssar, Al-Qaterji, and Zibidiyeh districts; this resulted in a series of intense clashes are still ongoing at the moment.
Despite claiming that their militants have captured several sites from the Syrian Arab Army in east Aleppo today, Fatah Halab and Jaysh Al-Fatah have been unable to gain any significant ground due to the fierce resistance from the government forces.
Moreover, Fatah Halab’s inability to retake the Seif Al-Dawla area of east Aleppo has left them crippled against the Syrian Arab Army and their allies, as this small region played an integral role in the recent jihadist demise.
