Backed by heavy airstrikes from their Russian counterparts, the Syrian Arab Army capitalized on its recent advance at Khan Al-‘Assal in southwestern Aleppo last night to attack the jihadist defenses at nearby Rashiddeen 4.

According to a military source in Aleppo city, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) was finally able to break through the jihadist lines at Rashiddeen 4, seizing the entire sector for the first time since 2013.

The capture of the Rashiddeen 4 sector by the Syrian Arab Army is a major blow for the jihadist rebels in Aleppo, as this area had long been used by the latter to launch attacks on the provincial capital.

Lastly, the capture of Rashiddeen 4 by the Syrian Army now opens the possibility of a new attack on the jihadist stronghold of Al-Mansoura, which is located at the western outskirts of Aleppo city.
