DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:35 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh and Fatah Halab attempted to reverse the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) territorial gains on Monday, targeting the imperative neighborhoods of Al-Mayssar, Al-Qartarji, and Zibdiyeh.

Fatah Halab and Jaysh Al-Fateh began their counter-offensive near the Seif Al-Dawla area of east Aleppo, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s defensives at the Zibdiyeh Quarter; this resulted in an intense firefight that cost the jihadist rebels several combatants.

Following their attack on Zibidiyeh, the jihadist rebels attempted to recapture territory they lost in the Al-Mayssar and Al-Qatarji neighborhoods; however, they were once again unsuccessful in this military endeavor, as the Syrian Army and their allies repulsed the Fatah Halab advance.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces killed over 20 enemy combatants in the eastern pocket of the provincial capital on Monday, marking a bitter end to the jihadist counter-offensive.

It was more than easy to forsee : the shithadists are outnumbered, outgunned and nowhere near to have their buddies come to help.
In fact, the best things these idiots could do would be to accept to be moved to Idlib or even better, as it was proposed, to Turkey but, as many of them seem willing to have their 72 virgin goats to shag…

It is now time for France and Great Britain to regain some of their lost dignity as nations and to speak out against the barbaric crimes of the Takfiri , Turkish et al terrorists in Syria.

If France and Great Britain do not do this they will be remembered throughout history for their ignominious acts in Syria that is the Cradle of Civilisation.

If the siege is air tight then this counter offensive has costed them more weapons and ammunition.
If airstrikes or strategic bombing can take out more ATGM positions then the end is near.
