The jihadist rebels, led by Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), captured their third village in the southern Aleppo countryside after a brief battle with the Syrian Armed Forces on Saturday.

Jabhat Al-Nusra, backed by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Faylaq Al-Sham, imposed full control over Burnah after the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah withdrew from Khalsah and Zeitan near the strategic town of Al-Hadher.

With these three villages now under jihadist control, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies now find themselves with their backs against the wall at Al-Hadher.

If they are unable to stop the jihadist progression in the southern Aleppo countryside in the coming days, they will find themselves under a heavy attack at Al-Hadher’s western flank.

Iran should better withdraw from Hader and S. Aleppo all together, rather than risk yet another catastrophically embarrassing string of defeats.

Syrian soldiers everyday died… This whole situation is very strange because Syrian Army is supported by Russians helicopters and jets. It seems that Russian technique is quite poor and not very precise. Progress is too small and the losses are too high. I know that Russians are good people and they want to help Syria but these thugs from Nusra, FSA etc have strong support from the US, Turkey, Israel so it is hard.

I can’t understand why the army always seems to give up areas so quickly when they had to fight so hard during weeks to conquer them?
