BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) stormed the western sector of Aleppo City on Tuesday morning, targeting the jihadist rebel positions at the key hilltop of Tal Shuwayhana, which overlooks the Al-Zahra’a Association Quarter, Al-Rashiddeen area, Al-Mansoura village, and Scientific Research Facility.
Led by their Republican Gurd units and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), the Syrian Arab Army attempted to advance at Tal Shuwayhana around 2:30 A.M. (Damascus Time); this resulted in a series of intense clashes that are still ongoing at this moment.
According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army and Liwaa Al-Quds have managed to infiltrate the first line of defense at Tal Shuwayhana; however, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham remain in control of much of the hilltop.
While the Syrian Arab Army attempts to advance at Tal Shuwayhana, the Russian Air Force conducted well-over 40 airstrikes since 2:00 A.M. (Damascus Time), forcing the jihadist rebels to take cover around Al-Mansoura and Al-Rashiddeen, as the onslaught intensified over the last two hours.
