The extremist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Jund Al-Aqsa (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Ajnad Al-Sham have launched a late night assault in southern Aleppo after being repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces on Friday evening.

The first assault began after a barrage of mortars and rockets hit the Syrian Army’s defenses; this was followed by Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies storming the southwestern flank of Tal Al-‘Eiss.

The aforementioned rebel groups would then launch VBIEDs(vehicle borne improvised explosive device) towards the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses.

However, the 3 VBIEDs did not reach their intended targets, thanks in large part to the observant soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army that were protecting the village’s southwestern flank.

In addition to preventing the rebel infiltration, the Syrian Armed Forces also killed 3 commanders from Jabhat Al-Nusra and several of their combatants during this battle on Friday.

Undeterred by their failed assault earlier in the day, Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies launched another assault, but this time with more fighters.

According to the preliminary reports from southern Aleppo, the rebel forces have been able to to enter Tal Al-‘Eiss; however, the status of the village is currently unknown.

Rebel activists claim they have seized the village, but there has been no confirmation from the government side.
