Aleppo City, Syria (10:45 A.M.) Fatah Halab’s abrupt offensive inside Aleppo City’s northern sector on Wednesday has taken a turn for the worse, as the predominantly Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) foiled their assault at the Sheikh Maqsoud, Bani Za’id, and Ashrafiyah quarters.
According to local reports, the jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab launched an attack from several axes on Wednesday morning; however, they were unable to infiltrate the YPG’s first line of defense inside Aleppo City.
Making matters worse for the jihadist rebels, a massive explosion was just reported inside the Bani Za’id Quarter, killing and wounding several members of their organization.
The explosion took place at weapons and ammunition depot in the Bani Za’id Quarter – the cause of this explosion is still unknown at the moment.
Meanwhile, at the Layramoun-Bani Za’id front, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division continued their push to enter the Bani Za’id Quarter from its western flank; clashes are still ongoing.
