The newly formed Islamist rebel group “Liwaa Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki” began their first large-scale operation at the Al-Zahra Association Quarter of west Aleppo over the weekend.

However, the Islamist rebel force did not get off on the right foot, as the aforementioned group stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Great Prophet Mosque in Al-Zahra, only to find themselves sustaining heavy casualties and very minimal progress.

Following their series of failed infiltration attempts over the weekend, the Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki Brigades regrouped and launched another large-scale assault at the Great Prophet Mosque and Building 11 in the Al-Zahra Quarter.

Not long after they launched this new assault on the Al-Zahra Quarter, the Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki Brigades were forced to retreat to the Al-Layramoun Quarter, following a series of unsuccessful infiltration attempts into the Great Prophet Mosque.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the newly formed Islamist group suffered significantly high casualties during the inception of their operations inside the provincial capital; this includes the loss of four field commanders in a matter of 24 hours.

On Wednesday morning, the Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki Brigades refrained from assaulting the Al-Zahra Quarter for the first time in 24 hours; this is likely due to the limited success they achieved over the weekend.
