DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive inside the eastern pocket of Aleppo on Monday, targeting several axes under the control of Fatah Halab.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies launched a powerful attack inside the Haydariyah Neighborhood after securing the nearby Helok District during the massive advance yesterday.
At approximately 7:30 A.M. this morning, the Tiger Forces successfully secured the Haydariyah Neighborhood of east Aleppo, killing several members of Fatah Halab before overrunning their last-line of defense.
As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Armed Forces have now flanked the strategic Sakhour District from two different axes, making it very difficult for the jihadist rebels to launch a counter-attack inside the eastern pocket of Aleppo.
In addition to the advance in the northern sector of the east Aleppo pocket, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard forces, alongside Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), managed to break-through the jihadist front-lines at Sheikh Lufti eastern axis, resulting in the partial seizure of the east neighborhood.
