Aleppo, Syria (8:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard, backed by the 800th Regiment and Hezbollah’s “Radwan Group,” stormed the strategic Armament School in southern Aleppo on Friday, continuing their large-scale offensive against the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).

A field source told Al-Masdar News on Friday morning that the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are attempting to bypass Jaysh Al-Fateh’s first-line of defense at the Armament School; however, no progress has been reported so far.

The Armament School is vitally located at the southern flank of the Technical College; if captured, the Syrian Armed Forces will have successfully closed off the road to east Aleppo.

More importantly, the Armament School was considered a fortress prior to the Syrian Arab Army’s withdrawal in August; it will continue to be an advantageous military installation for any party in control it.

Since I follow what happens in Syria, never stated a single use of napalm…
From time to time a little white phosphorus or thermobaric. Napalm being very near of soap is great to cleanse dirt and smells great. The ‘greek fire’ roasted saracens and ottomans for 800 years, napalm should logically be used for neo-shithadists…

That’s because Al Nusra that control ‘rebels’ in South Aleppo used suicide cars & trucks – hard to fight against suicide bombers and they are 2 tone vehicles full of masses of explosives and shrapnel that do colossal damage to entrenched checkpoints – all the Nusra progress was spearheaded by suicide vehicles. It is not conventional war it islamist suicide tactics.
