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.
