ALEPPO, SYRIA (3:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Liwaa Al-Quds have announced the complete seizure of the Handarat Refugee Camp in northern Aleppo after a three-day long battle with Fatah Halab.

According to Liwaa Al-Quds, the Syrian Armed Forces captured most of the district after breaking through Fatah Halab’s primary-line of defense, leaving only a small portion of the western neighborhoods under their control.

Not long after entering the western neighborhoods, the Syrian Armed Forces expelled the remaining members of Fatah Halab to the Shaqayf District, where they are now attacking the aforementioned jihadist group.

The seizure of the Handarat Refugee Camp will now pave the way for the Syrian Armed Forces to attack the Kindi Hospital and Shaqayf District; these two sites have been under the control of the jihadist rebels since late 2013.

The shithadists suffered great losses in Aleppo. This new offensive is FAR to be as powerful as the one they did to break the siege and maintain it open for a few weeks. This push is FAAAR to be as powerful, they just attacked a much softer and less risky area. SAA is just relocating forces there and will simply wipe them out. Now, the habitual regular troop that held the area simply prefer to retreat to avoid mass casualties : if you try to contain a serious offensive while really outnumbered, you just end with counter-productive severe losses.

Syrian army is a mess. I’m sorry but that’s the truth. Elite forces win the attack, regular army promptly retreats.

That´s why it´s called regular . They are supposed to hold it until they are reinforced or cant hold no more . If you are not hard pressed against the wall retreat . And SAA is fantastic concerning who they have to fight against….I mean 5 years of this bloody war , both on the ground and in the diplomatic arena .

Did you see the video where a general is instructing “soldiers” how to cover behind the tank before the attack? Sorry, but this is just pathetic.

I really wish SAA to be much better trained and determined to kill all the wahhabi retards!

“And SAA is fantastic concerning who they have to fight against”

A rag tag alliance of air force-less jihadis? Should be easy for any real army.

Like I said, ragtag, nowhere near as co-ordinated as a proper army, with standard weapons, no planes, helicopters, none of that. As for their fanaticism, the Syrians are defending their homes, their country, they have no excuse for not matching and even exceeding the fanaticism of their enemies.

kit – Ha…..they are more then well coordinated , especially when it comes to the offensives , Hitler´s blitz is nothing compared to the ability of those fuckers to appear out of nowhere , they have plenty of meat for the grinder + support form Turks , Israelis , USA and Gulf States that provide them with money and modern toys .
