Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) imposed full control over the Hanano district and Hanano Housing following a three-day long battle with the Levant Front, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front), and Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki in northeastern Aleppo.

Should the Syrian military seize full control of Aleppo city, it would free up tens of thousands of SAA soldiers to other regions across Syria.
