Desperate jihadists in Aleppo city launched a new offensive today on Al-Breij, Al-Manasher axes south of Handarat Camp in the vicinity of the Industrial Zone.
Thought they were able to make a slight advance the quarries region, the air force has just began its tenure to push the advancing jihadists back. Heavy clashes are still ongoing near Breij hilltop.
Should the Fateh Halab coalition of jihadists capture this region, they would have secured one of the flanks surrounding their stronghold of Handarat Camp. This would make it much harder for the government forces to capture the camp that had been for long a thorn in the face of the Syrian forces.
However, it is unlikely that the jihadist rebels would be able to secure this area and make important headway due to the upcoming intense air strikes and MLRS bombardment of this region.
Ever since the rebels in east Aleppo have been cut off from their comrades who failed to lift the siege on multiple times, they have grown too desperate and have since launched numerous offensives in Aleppo city attempting to break through government lines and open new fronts to weaken government pressure on other regions in Aleppo, like Mallah and Layramoun/Bani Zaid axis.
