Aleppo, Syria (8:45 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Armed Forces, alongside Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), launched their long-awaited counter-offensive at the southern districts of Aleppo City.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies attacked several points that are under the control of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) in the Al-Ramouseh District of southern Aleppo.
A source from the Tiger Forces told Al-Masdar on Thursday morning that the Syrian Armed Forces launched their offensive from four axes; these attack points include the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, Wassout Al-Jabless, Tal Al-Sanoubrat, and the Aleppo Cement Factory.
The military source added that the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are currently engaged in a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels near the Al-Ramouseh District – no gains reported yet.
While the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies attack Jaysh Al-Fateh from the ground, Russian jets are pounding these same jihadists from the air, hitting several targets in southern Aleppo.
