DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in the southwestern corridor of Aleppo on Wednesday, targeting the jihadist-controlled Hikmah area near the recently captured 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army forced the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) to withdraw south of the Hikmah School after pounding them repeatedly with mortar and artillery shells.

It took several hours to approach the Hikmah School after the jihadist rebels withdrew; however, once they were able to clear the area of any mines or IEDs (improvised explosive device), the Syrian Armed Forces established full-control over this strategic site.

Following the capture of the Hikmah School this morning, the Syrian Armed Forces made their first push towards the Rashiddeen 5 Suburb that is located south of the aforementioned site – clashes are currently ongoing.
