ALEPPO, SYRIA (5:38 P.M.) – In line with the Syrian Army’s recent advances that place the government forces in position to split what remains of rebel-held east Aleppo in two, the insurgents have begun the process of mass retreating from the northern section of the blob to avoid being split.
Fateh Halab factions are currently abandoning their positions in Haydariyah and have reportedly abandoned Bustan Al-Basha according to rebel sources. Pro-government sources have just announced the capture of the adjacent Ba’ibdeen district.
To ensure their complete withdrawal, they would have to maintain control over large sections of the central Sakhour district or else they’ll be prone to splitting apart. As less than a kilometer separates the government troops at Sulayman Al-Halabi district from their counterparts in Hnano, retreating rebels are under the mercy of the Syrian Army’s relentless bombardment on the district as it lay under the fire control of the Syrian Armed Forces.
