Aleppo, Syria (7:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division began their assault against the jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab inside the northern sector of Aleppo City today, targeting the latter at the Dahret ‘Abd Rabbo and Al-Zahraa quarters.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent inside Aleppo City, the Syrian Army’s 4th Division, backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Al-Ba’ath Battalion, launched a large number of mortar shells and rockets towards Fatah Halab’s positions in Dahret ‘Abd Rabbo and Al-Zahraa, killing several enemy combatants in the process.

Preliminary reports from the provincial capital indicate that the Syrian Armed Forces have already begun storming the Dahret ‘Abd Rabbo Quarter; however, this has not been confirmed by the Syrian Arab Army.

In addition to the Syrian Arab Army’s ground assault, their allies from the Russian Air Force are pounding Fatah Halab in the northern countryside of Aleppo, striking several villages inside the ‘Anadan Plains.

On Sunday, the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh announced the next phase of their Aleppo offensive, which includes the entire provincial capital; this attack is expected to begin in the coming days, as they mobilize more forces from the neighboring Idlib Governorate.

May God soundly punish each U.S. political figure who is responsible for money, arms, training to terrorists who are wreaking havoc on innocent Syrians – making it more and more intense until they stop this cruel illegal immoral activity! Many Americans are good, but Obama, John Kerry, Samantha Powell, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton are rotten to the core. God powerfully deal and keep dealing with them.

If it wasnt for all the killing, it would almost be a funny stupid comment. The articel above is about russians pounding civilians of Syria and the SAA is doing it as well. Lets take again even a lot of soap would not help. Rebels are mainly financed by oil solded to everybody and not US. The Turks – good and friendly neighbors of the best more and more muslim sort are given support incl. bying oil. US is supporting Your friends in Bagdad and Iran as well. They are supporting Kurds figthing ISIS and are not alone helping You.… Read more »

Are you stupid or just pretending to be? Syrian rebels never controll any important oil pipes/fields or rafinery facilities, only ISIS do this job, so we both agree that ISIS is strong ally to “syrian” rebels or better to call them Jihadists. 🙂

Nope, he’s just explaining to you that things are not as simple as you consider. You wouldn’t have problems to notice that the DoD and DoS clearly don’t agree… DoD doesn’t cares about nasty geopolitics, their goal is in fact the same as the russians : terminating the terrorists. Get info and you’ll notice that USAF pilots are complaining about stupid ROEs edicted by politicians that blocks ’em doing their job! In fact, if the DoD was given carte blanche, IMHO, qaeda, daesh and talebans would be history for a while now… But they’re not unable to act because the… Read more »

What should God do about SAA and RuAF bombing everything they see? Bombs are killing much more civilians, then rebels will ever be able to. What the point of blaming rebels for their existence, if every bombing of every city, or village will only make more people rebel against Assad?

I think you never properly know anything about this conflict, it is proxy war, and nobody cares about civilians… In every war civilians are first victims, but you are wrong, people dont rebel against Assad now because all rebels are radical Jihadist and Syria have much of Christian, Druze, Yazdi etc. minorities which will die under their rules.

They are not rebels but terrorists. The areas they operate in Aleppo have been evacuated and don’t worry about the russians : they know where to strike : during the 2003 invasion in Iraq, there was a russian site giving the position of EVERY US tank or APC in real time and even predicting their moves! You know, the Ilyuchins now based in Hmeimim Air Base are not transport aircrafts! They are the equivalents to the E-8 J-STARS and the EC-130 Compass Call. But the terrorists hide in the middle of the population and use civilians as human shields. Do… Read more »

Oh, please, James, give God a break, there are more than enough religious freaks making their ugly s**t nowadays and his kingdom is cleary not of this world which, because of all hese freaks just looks like h**l. I partly agree with you but it’s really too easy to always accuse the US of all the evil that happens on earth and to be frank, there are no good guys in this sad mid-east story.

I feel for some of the minorities under Takfiri rule, like Assyrian Christians and Yazidis.

I do hear what you are saying just remember only 10%(ish) of them are Wahabbis.
