Aleppo, Syria (9:00 A.M.) – One day after capturing a number of key sites in Aleppo City, the Syrian Armed Forces have shifted their attention to the imperative village of Kafr Hamra, which sits at the northwestern outskirts of the provincial capital.
With two large military units positioned in the northern sector of Aleppo City, the Syrian Armed Forces are preparing to strike Kafr Hamra from two different flanks, while still applying pressure on the jihadist forces in east Aleppo.
The jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab will not be able to lift the siege on east Aleppo, so the Syrian Arab Army can concentrate a considerable number of soldiers to the Kafr Hamra front, where they will be fighting in a condensed area that will be absent of tanks.
Bani Za’id was the primary launching point for jihadist mortar shells in Aleppo City; however, it was not the only area used by the Fatah Halab fighters.
Kafr Hamra was an important area used by the jihadist rebels to launch mortar shells and hellfire cannons into the western Aleppo neighborhoods; it will now be the primary area they will use to target the provincial capital.
Due to its proximity to the New Aleppo District and Al-Zahra’a Association Quarter, Kafr Hamra will be one the Syrian Arab Army’s top priorities in the Aleppo Governorate.
