Aleppo, Syria – The Syrian Arab Army initiated the second phase of its Aleppo offensive on the morning of December 2nd.
A military source informed Al-Masdar that elite forces in the Syrian Armed Forces advanced in the neighborhoods west of the Aleppo International Airport where army units stormed the districts of Halwaniyah and Tariq Al-Bab from their positions in Furouj Al-Sharq and Tariq Al-Bab Roundabout while the districts of Karam Al-Jazmati and Al-Maysar were attacked from the Ma’asaraniyah Youth Housing Complex axis.
The source also confirmed that the Syrian military captured many blocks in Halawaniyah and over half of Jazmati district along with the eastern section of Karam Al-Qaterji and a number of blocks in Maysar district after heavy clashes with the newly formed Army of Aleppo militants who lost dozens of lives attempting to forestall the Syrian Arab Army’s advance.
This advance comes two days after the government forces captured the entirety of the Ma’asraniyah Youth Housing Complex after a storming operation that proceeded without the use of air support.
In these moments, the government troops continue to advance with the aim of securing the entirety of the airport’s vicinity and reopening its highway.
