Aleppo, Syria (11:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces, alongside Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), stormed the key village of Al-Qarassi this morning after failing to maintain control over it on Wednesday.
According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah attacked Al-Qarassi from the Huwayz axis, while the Syrian Air Force targeted Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) at the nearby town of Khan Touman.
Al-Qarassi is considered the gateway to Khan Touman; this is one of the reasons why it is a top priority for the Syrian Arab Army’s high command.
If the Syrian Armed Forces capture Khan Touman from Jaysh Al-Fateh, then they will have fire control over the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).
So far, no gains have been reported from this front; however, Jaysh Al-Fateh was cutoff from their forces inside the Aleppo Artillery Academy after the Tiger Forces captured ‘Aqra Hill along the Khan Touman-Ramouseh Road.
