DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized several sites inside the western corridor of Aleppo on Friday, after a 48 hour long battle with the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).

With both the Al-Assad and Minyan suburbs under their control, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” turned their attention to the Aqrab area of west Aleppo, which is the last site needed to reverse all of the jihadist gains since September.

The Tiger Forces began the day by storming the Al-Soura Checkpoint that is located directly west of the Al-Assad Suburb; this attack resulted in a fierce battle that ended with Jaysh Al-Fateh’s retreat.

Once the Al-Soura Checkpoint was secured, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the northern perimeter of the Souq Al-Jabas area, resulting in another intense battle with the jihadist rebels.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are attempting to capture the Souq Al-Jabas area; if successful, they will have access to the remaining buildings in Aqrab.
