ALEPPO, SYRIA (2:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive in the northeastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City today, targeting the Bustan Al-Basha District and the area just north of the Hanano Youth Housing Complex.

Led by the 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), the Syrian Armed Forces launched a powerful attack at the Bustan Al-Basha District’s central neighborhoods, striking Fatah Halab’s positions at several buildings.

According to a military source, the Syrian Armed Forces still control approximately 40 percent of this district; however, the Islamist rebels are attempting to reestablish their presence in the southern neighborhoods after losing much of Bustan Al-Basha during the first week of the assault.

Meanwhile, northeast of Bustan Al-Basha, the Syrian Armed Forces made their first push towards the Hanano Youth Housing Complex; this resulted in a fierce battle at the southern outskirts of Tal Al-Asfar.

Intense clashes are still being reported outside the Hanano Youth Housing Complex, as the Syrian Armed Forces continue their onslaught in northeast Aleppo.
