ALEPPO, SYRIA (9:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) managed to capture a large chunk of east Aleppo today after a 48 hour long battle with Islamist rebels of Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the entire Suleiman Al-Halabi District and more than half of the Bustan Al-Basha District, leaving the Islamist rebels with their backs against the wall at nearby Sakhour.

Making matters worse for the Islamist rebels in east Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed fire-control over Halab Hill, which is located at the southwestern perimeter of Al-Bureijj.

West of Al-Bureijj, the Syrian Armed Forces captured 50 percent of Al-‘Oweija after breaking through Nouriddeen Al-Zinki’s first line of defense at the western axis of this district.

If any Al-Zinki are captured its important to find the child murderers that beheaded the 12 year old Palestinian boy and put them on public trial for the world to see.

The terrorists in the Aleppo pocket are doomed as no reinforcements, weapons, ammo and supplies can get through to them. Neither can they evacuate their wounded from the area for treatment. And the more they resist, the faster their ammo supplies will run out. I won’t be surprised if their US and Gulf-Arab backers move for a UN Security Council resolution demanding the SAA to stop “committing atrocities against the unarmed civilians of Aleppo”
