The Russian Air Force played a critical role in the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) advance on Sunday, as they destroyed several jihadist sites in order to clear a path for the government forces at the Bani Zaid District of Aleppo City.
A security source in Aleppo City told Al-Masdar News on Sunday that the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division captured the Barhou Al-Saleh School inside the Bani Zaid District after a violent battle with the jihadist rebels of Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki.
The school was used by the jihadist rebels as a command-and-control center before it was captured by the Syrian Armed Forces on Sunday morning.
In addition to their advance inside the Bani Zaid District, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division launched another attack at the Al-Layramoun District’s Industrial Zone.
No gains have been reported from the Industrial Zone as of yet; however, the assault has also just started.
