ALEPPO, SYRIA (5:00 P.M.) – Shortly after the unanticipated blitzkrieg offensive that had the elite Tiger Forces capture the entirety of Hanano district in less than 48 hours, the Syrian Armed Forces would continue their offensive on several fronts of the rebel-held region of Aleppo.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) capitalized on the collapse of insurgent rebel lines capturing Ard Al-Hamra and Jabal Badro, districts adjacent to Hanano and the imperative Sakhour district that links the the northern and southern parts of rebel-held Aleppo.

In addition to the aforementioned advances, the SAA managed to capture Jandoul Factories, Ayn Al-Tal district, half of Ba’ibdeen district, and large parts of the Hallak Fuqani and Hallak Tahtani districts amidst reports of a militant mass retreat from the northern section of the east Aleppo enclave.

To make matters worse for the Islamist rebels, the Syrian Army is currently storming Sakhour district as they hastily execute their unorganized retreat through the district to the southern districts of Aleppo. Thousands of civilians and scores of fighters were able to evacuate from east Aleppo in the past few days thanks in large part to the SAA’s most recent advances.

Previously, rebels would booby trap all the humanitarian corridors and threaten would-be IDP’s (internally displaced people) with force should they attempt to flee the Aleppo war zone.

Remarkably, over 2000 civilians have reached government-held districts of Aleppo in the past 48 hours.

Leading the operations in Aleppo city are the SAA’s elite Tiger Forces, Republican Guard, and Desert Hawks. On the rebel side, the dominant forces are represented by the Fateh Halab operation room and Jaish Al-Fateh coalition.

As the Syrian Army continues its advance all over Aleppo, early reports suggest that Sakhour has fallen to the grasps of the government forces. However, an exclusive military source informed Al-Masdar that the district has not been fully captured as of this moment.

Sorry. Seems not yet. The above mentioned website showed it split into two for the first time but it changed again. Relax. Soon it will be.

It would be rather interesting that after fall/liberation of east Aleppo the real number of civilians would end up to less then 50 K or even lower..

The less there are in, the better it is. I wouldn’t be surprised if many managed to escape through s*x Meqsud as many humanitarian help entered the besieged part of Aleppo from there.

with an estimation of 9k terrorists in and the size of the pocket, probably at least 20k or maybe even 30-40k…
