Last night, the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) – in close coordination with Jaysh Al-Thuwwar of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – imposed full control over the Bani Zayd Youth Housing Complex in Aleppo City after a fierce battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah.
The YPG and SDF were able to fully seize the Bani Zayd Youth Housing Complex after almost 6 days of intense firefights.
Last week, the extremist rebels launched a counter-offensive to recapture this strategic site located near the Al-Ashrafiyah District of Aleppo City; however, they only managed to seize part of the facility.
All of the extremist rebel gains were officially reversed by the Kurdish forces in the past few days, including the Salahiddeen Mosque and several building blocks in the Al-Ashrafiyah District.
Currently, the extremist rebels have their backs against the wall inside the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, thanks in large part to the YPG and SDF soldiers that are capturing several sites from these opposition fighters.
