DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their assault in the western corridor of Aleppo today, targeting both the Al-Assad and Minyan suburbs that have been the scene of intense clashes for several days.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to break-through Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) first-line of defense in the Al-Assad Suburb, resulting in the capture of several sites, including the Science Academy and nearby church.

According to a military source in Aleppo City, the Tiger Forces are continuing to advance from the southern sector of the Al-Assad Suburb, seizing a number of villas en route to the central sector.

In addition to their advance in the Al-Assad Suburb, the Syrian Armed Forces also making another push in Minyan; however, no significant gains have been reported by local sources.

People in eastern Aleppo are complaining the food rations just ended and they’re about to starve…
JihadiJulian is accusing Assad and Putin to starve them, but who is shooting at humanitarian corridors? Isn’t it his Nusra or Zinki friends?

It’s good they’re trying to advance but also the focus here is to make the terrorists offensive fail so they will become so weak, they will lose land like crazy to the extent that they will disappear in Idlib and such.

It’s the purpose of the air strikes in the back country, now that they had serious scores, it’s time to counter-offensive.
BTW, the al-Assad suburb seem to have been retaken now :
