ALEPPO, SYRIA (12:50 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), continued their large-scale offensive in the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo on Monday, targeting several axes under the control of Fatah Halab militants.

Led by the 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their advance near the Al-‘Oweija District, capturing the large hilltop of Tal Safir after a fierce battle near the Jandoul Roundabout.

With the capture of Tal Safir on Monday, the Syrian Armed Forces now have fire control over the Jandoul Roundabout from two different flanks; however, the aforementioned site is still contested because of Fatah Halab’s positions near the southern axis.

Meanwhile, at the Suleiman Al-Halabi District, the Syrian Armed Forces made another push to expel the Fatah Halab militants from the eastern neighborhoods, but this attack ultimately failed as the latter was able to retain control over this small area.

Perhaps the most intense assault on Monday took place at Bustan Al-Basha, where the Syrian Armed Forces stormed the central district in order to breach Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki’s last-line of defense.

Fierce clashes are still ongoing tonight at Bustan Al-Basha, as the Syrian Armed Forces look to expel the remaining Islamist rebels from the district.
