Aleppo, Syria (8:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces launched a powerful assault in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate on Tuesday, targeting the important town of Al-Qarassi that is located directly east of Khan Touman.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attempted to break-through the enemy front-lines at Tal Qarassi this morning; however, Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) managed to repel the attack after several hours of battle.

The Tiger Forces would regroup and then launch a second attack at Tal Qarassi, which proved successful after a short firefight with Jaysh Al-Fateh.

Following the capture of Tal Qarassi, the Syrian Armed Forces seized Tal ‘Amarah, Barandeh, and Qarassi village after breaking through Jaysh Al-Fateh’s first-line of defense.

With the capture of Qarassi, the Tiger Forces are now within striking distance of the strategic village of Khan Touman.

Khan Touman is located along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway); it is the primary roadway used by the jihadist rebels to transport supplies and reinforcements to Aleppo City.

Really? No-one else is reporting this, Liveuamap says that the SAA won Qarassi very briefly before losing it again, have the SAA since won it again or is Masdar very late in their reporting?

Which I ask, WHICH?!?!?!?!?

Liveuamap seems really biased towards the moderate beheader’s gains. Also they take a lot of time to update territorial gains. I hope SAA is still on control of Qarassi.

No-one else is reporting it, they reported the brief capture then losing it again to the rebels, I think that’s just what it is; Masdar late to the punch as always.

LiveUmap is a bias site … Beyond any propagnada comes from all rivals . It is a green (fake rebels color) spamer and very very propagandist . All time “fagot hit pro gov ” just to reboost morale for jihadists

The propaganda is nauseating yes, but they’re honest about government failings and quick to report that, where Masdar aren’t on either regard.

totally agree with you, can’t believe that site isn’t taken down, cause they surely know how to cheer up the jihadists,saudis (only wahhabis) ,qataris,far-right ultra-nationalist fascist chauvinist ukrainians (mainly from lviv) and small part of US government (a.k.a hawks) officials, while slandering everybody else.

We wouldn’t have to go there if a pro-SAA person could do a remotely comparable site.

Might be. There isnt anything better. Do as you do – Add and subtract put inflation up and down and take away lies.

Im really doing my best and Im good at it reading many newssites from several english written sites. Its very difficult.

Made a comment yesterday – not an important one, but all the KDP, YPG, PYD,FSA and others went to be some strange mixing completly wrong.

Even if You take a long vacation, the war will still be there…or another one…

This time SAA have to bomb the h**l of east Allepo and force terrorists to surrender just like in.DARAYA… if this happens this war will end in just one year in favor of president Assad

This Is A Very Good Development… Let The Front Be Extended Into The Rest Of Occupied South Alleppo, Thus Making A Bigger Siege!!! The Rats In The Academies Will Autometically Fail, Instead Of Wasting Precious Resources And Time In Countless Assaults To Free Them!!! Victory To SAA!!!

Did they kill many militants? Syria has to greatly reduce their numbers or else Syria will be fully submerged in militants. Don’t just shuffle them off or allow them to run away (unless it is completely out of Syria and the border is sealed behind them).

SAA need jamming devices to disable drones jihadists use. Jihadists have civilian DJI Phantom Quadcopters. It is possible to disable them by jamming locally GPS positioning signal and wi-fi connection beetween drone and the control device. It is not so difficult to obtain such jamming devices. Ask chinese or even russians 😉 For example… http://jammers4u.com/drones-jammer

But things are simpler than they may look : if it ain’t SAA, if it ain’t SDF, if it ain’t Daesh, it’s al-Qaeda! The devil is known by many names, you know… 😉

If turkey wants to have tie with Syrian people , they have to close the borders so the terrorists could not have no supplies and without supplies coming terrorists could not sustain the war for too long. The SAA will have victoy near the corner.
