At least four Russian ‘3M-54 Klub’ Kalibr cruise missiles were launched into areas controlled by Jaish al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) on Tuesday, two of which struck militant positions near the town of Saraqib. A further two surface-to-surface Russian cruise missiles hit Jabal al-Hoss in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo.

Meanwhile, joint Russian and Syrian airstrikes continued to do the groundwork for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) over Aleppo, striking insurgents overnight at Bishqatin, and Bustan al-Bashra while SAA missiles struck the Hanano Housing and al-Haydari district.

In addition, one pinpoint Syrian airstrike killed 9 ‘Jaish al-Mujahideen’ militants at the Rashideen suburb, southwest of Aleppo city.

The SAA’s regional commander-in-chief Colonel Suheil al-Hassan has reportedly been weary of continuing Tiger Forces operations on the western fringe of Aleppo city after nearly ten US-manufactured TOW missiles have struck SAA soldiers in recent days and inflicted dozens of casualties among Syrian government troops.

On the other hand, a senior Russian official Franz Klintsevich said the SAA would resume operations to liberate besieged eastern Aleppo neighbourhoods ‘within 24 hours’.

@ Chris Tomson.

You said “The SAA’s regional commander-in-chief Colonel Suheil al-Hassan has reportedly been weary ”

Did you really mean to use the word ‘weary’ or did you in fact mean ‘wary’ ( adjective
feeling or showing caution about possible dangers or problems: ) ?

If I don’t doubt of the efficiency of ‘3M-54 Klub’, it’s still like using a 155mm Howitzer to blow a mouse in such a case.
