DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces, alongside Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), have launched another powerful attack at the eastern sector of Aleppo City today, targeting a number of districts under the control of Fatah Halab.
The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” began the day by storming the Hanano District’s eastern flank; this resulted in a significant advance and the subsequent capture of 80 percent of the jihadist rebel territory in the area.
With Fatah Halab sending reinforcements to the Hanano axis, the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard, backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra, attacked Sheikh Lufti and ‘Ard Al-Hamra, where they managed to capture a large chunk of these jihadist-controlled districts.
According to a field report from east Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to capture Hill 420 (Police Hill) after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels this afternoon.
Meanwhile, next to the ‘Ard Al-Hamra District, the Syrian Arab Army and Liwaa Al-Quds resumed their assault at Jabal Badro, killing several militants from Fatah Halab, while Syrian jets rained airstrikes over the latter’s defenses.
INtense clashes are ongoing at several axes now, as the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies continue the onslaught on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo.
