The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) have sent hundreds of reinforcements to the southern Aleppo front in order to help drive back the jihadist rebels near Khan Touman.

Last night, the jihadist rebels captured the villages of Khan Touman and Al-Khalidiyah after a fierce battle with the Syrian Armed Forces and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary).

This latest jihadist advance has put the Syrian Armed Forces in a difficult position in southern Aleppo because Khan Touman overlooks the Syrian government controlled villages to the east.

Since the inception of this nationwide ceasefire, the Syrian Armed Forces have lost two major villages to the jihadist rebels: Tal Al-‘Eiss and Khan Touman.

its because the deceitfulness of the cease fire they are caught off guard plus saa is figthing on several fronts its impossible to repel all attacks in all areas , what they can do in the future employ better Intel on future attacks and call in airstrikes in an event where rebels come in sheer number other fortify the town in order to prevent infiltration as well , to oversee atacks but this proves difficult if you dont have proper tools to do it since attacks comes with explosives these jihadist are supported by other countries like the west
