The extremist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Jund Al-Aqsa (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Ajnad Al-Sham have launched a joint offensive in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate to seize the strategic hilltop of Tal Al-‘Eiss.

Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies began the offensive by launching several mortar shells and rockets towards the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses at Tal Al-‘Eiss’ southwestern flank.

Following the barrage of mortars and rockets, Jabhat Al-Nusra and their stormed the southwestern flank of Tal Al-‘Eiss, launching 3 VBIEDs(vehicle borne improvised explosive device) at the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses.

However, the 3 VBIEDs did not reach their intended targets, thanks in large part to the observant soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army that were protecting the village’s southwestern flank.

In addition to preventing the rebel infiltration, the Syrian Armed Forces also killed 3 commanders from Jabhat Al-Nusra and several of their combatants during this battle on Friday.

Fighting is still ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and rebel fighters; however, the main attack has been repelled by the former, despite some setbacks between Tal Al-‘Eiss and Banes.

in all it seems that the Aleppo offensive of the loyalist forces has stalled, isn’t it?

They stopped it first for Securing East Aleppo and North Aleppo and then for Palmyra.
Just because Rebels loose 200 fighters for 3-5 villages in South Aleppo and then 2-3 Days later they will withdraw due to Reinforcements, Artillery and RU Airforce 😉
