DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), advanced deep inside the Bustan Al-Basha District of east Aleppo on Saturday, capturing several sites after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels.

Led by the 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to seize the southern and central sectors of Bustan Al-Basha, leaving only a small portion of the district left to capture from Fatah Halab.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces are in control of 75 percent of Bustan Al-Basha after killing at least 11 jihadist rebels amid their renewed offensive.

With this latest advance at Bustan Al-Basha, the Syrian Armed Forces are on the verge of closing another important gap in east Aleppo, while also shrinking the last rebel pocket in the provincial capital.
