Aleppo, Syria (4:15 A.M.) – On Tuesday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah, backed by Russian airstrikes, stormed the remaining jihadist controlled buildings in the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, capturing several sites after a fierce day-long battle.

Led by the Syrian Republican Guard and Hezbollah, the pro-government forces managed to break-through Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) first line of defense, giving them access to the southern part of this district for the first time in two weeks.

According to a military source in Aleppo City, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah now control 80 percent of this key district; however, the jihadist rebels still have fire control over the southern sector because of their positions in Hikmah School.

OK real talk:

(A) How are airstrikes directed? Who gives coordinates and how does it work exactly? Does it always work with a spotter directing the aircraft?

(B) How does a militant group know when to advance, how does it know when the others have abandoned and retreated from a building where in urban warefare you cant see shit and most of the time you are just hoping the bullets hit?

I always wondered ….

A. It depends on the type of operation. On the frontline I guess ground troops first identify firing positions of the enemy and them give directions to the aviation, which building to hit. In case of Idlib province regular airtstrikes, may be some local under cover intelligence agents provide hints on where weapon storage, bomb factory, or just planned enemy meeting will be. But I think most of this information are just guesses and not reliable, because the amount of airstrikes on Idlib province is much greater, than number of targets any intelligence could possibly provide.

so true!
A: in addition the fighting in aleppo happens in an area which the syrian army held for a long time. They should know the strategic locations quite well.
Once being in new enemy territory the focus will turn over to scouting by drones planes or satelite, creating movement patterns and the local people.

I doubt airsuport in Syria is directed in real time. I think Saa gives a coordinates and then wait until they come and unload, and that takes some time. Su 25 would do direct gound troops support at low altitude, or helikopters. Su 24 is just unloading at already predetermined targets
