On Tuesday morning, two dozen tanks and over 900 fighters from the civilian-led “National Defense Forces” (NDF) in the Hama Governorate have arrived to the tense battlefront inside the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, amid the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) prepared assault on the strategically located Scientific Research Facility in the Al-Rashideen Quarter.

The National Defense Forces’ reinforcements are believed to be the first wave of pro-government fighters to arrive to the Aleppo Governorate; however, their location and objective is still unknown, as these militiamen are only 1/3 of the scheduled reinforcements that are set to arrive to this volatile front in northern Syria.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the recent reinforcements traveled from their positions in the Hama Governorate’s southwestern countryside to the only government supply route along the Khanasser Highway; these men make-up half of the scheduled Syrian reinforcements to Aleppo, while a large contingent of Iraqi militiamen are set to arrive any day now.

Meanwhile, inside Aleppo City, the Syrian Arab Army – in coordination with the predominately Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigades) – have restarted their operations at the Scientific Research Facility in the Al-Rashideen Quarter.

If the Syrian Armed Forces are successful in recapturing this strategic building in west Aleppo, they will be in a prime position to reverse the gains made by the Islamist rebel fighters of Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” in the months of June and July.
