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.

The advance was conducted solely by the Tiger Forces, the SAA’s elite chock troops.

Effectively, Syrian government forces are now just 1500 meters from cutting up rebel-held Aleppo in two pockets, a scenario which would lead to the inevitable demise of Fatah Halab, a coalition of Islamist factions entrenched inside Aleppo city.

Now, following the capture of the imperative ‘police hill’ in southeastern Aleppo yesterday, the SAA’s Tiger Forces will turn their attention to the Sakhour district, Jabal Badro district and Ard al-Hamra axis.

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.

Good job SAA. Hope to see this map updated tomorrow again painted with more red and less green even though so called rebels territories deserve to be colored black not green.

“Chock troops” are lethal, particularly the Cadbury division!

I believe the Saudi/Qatar dream of a Salafist/Wahabi Caliphate over Syria is fading away. Also serious doubt regards the ARAMCO/Qatar pipeline through Syria.

Now things will accelerate : once the outer defence lines pierced, it’s domino theory. I feel Bilal Abdul Kareem will soon return to New-York… Very likely in a plastic bag. If not, let’s hope for him there is an efficient cure for the Stockholm Syndrome although he might pay a visit to Gitmo…
