The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” conducted a successful operation to liberate the integral village of Jbeileh near the Aleppo Central Prison. The Tiger Forces, led by their commander Lt. Soheil Al-Hassan, besieged the village, killing a number of Ahrar Al-Sham militants before declaring the village under SAA control. Jbeileh was an Ahrar Al-Sham stronghold used to launch attacks on the Aleppo Central Prison; its capture provides the Syrian Arab Army breathing room in the area.
At the Handarat Palestinian Camp, the Syrian Air Force targeted Islamic Front bases inside the camp, destroying numerous I.F. installments. The Handarat District remains besieged by the Syrian Army, with clashes intensifying over the three days. Meanwhile, at Saffahiyah in the Old City, the Syrian Arab Army has advanced near the Grand Umayyad Mosque, pushing the Islamic Front forces east.
