The Islamist rebels from the newly formed Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki Movement have launched a large-scale offensive in the provincial capital of Aleppo, targeting the Syrian Armed Forces’ frontline positions at the Al-Zahra Association, Salaheddine, Bani Zayd, New Aleppo, Al-‘Ashrafiyahand Al-Khalidiyah Quarters.

However, the Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki Movement were unable to achieve any success in the aforementioned areas, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Al-Ba’ath Battalions, and Liwaa Al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigades) – withstood the Islamist rebel assault and beat back the encroaching militants.

Following the failed assault by the Islamist rebels, the Syrian Arab Army – in coordination with Liwaa Al-Quds and the National Defense Forces – conducted their own counter-offensive at the Salaheddine Quarter in southern Aleppo City, capturing a number of building blocks near the Ard Al-Sabbagh Quarter that were under the control of the Islamist rebels.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces killed over 20 enemy combatants inside the Salaheddine Quarter, including the leader of Harakat Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki, Isma’eel Nasyaf.

Firefights were also reported between the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels at a number of sites in Aleppo, including the Bani Zayd, Bastan Al-Basha, Al-Layramoun, Al-‘Amariyah, and the Hanano Districts.
