BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) gave the jihadist rebels until October 15th to withdrawal their forces from the Al-Zahra’a axis in west Aleppo before they would make their decision regarding whether or not they would launch an offensive at this front. 

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies refused to leave the Al-Zahra’a axis in west Aleppo on October 15th, despite repeated by threats by the Syrian Arab Army and the Russian military.

The jihadist group would send their response to the Syrian Army in the form of a barrage of missiles on the densely populated New Aleppo District, prompting the Syrian Arab Army to unleash a flurry of projectiles on their supply lines to the Al-Zahra’a Association Quarter.

Since October 15th, the jihadist rebels have heavily attacked west Aleppo everyday in a defiant act to egg the Syrian Arab Army and their allies on.

The Syrian Army has now responded by sending a large number of reinforcements to the fringes of the Al-Zahra’a Association Quarter, where they joined forces with the Republican Guard troops that have been at the front-lines with the jihadists since the battle of Aleppo in 2012.

It appears as of now that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to kickoff their operation in the coming weeks, as they look to end Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s last presence around the provincial capital.

Bad strategy targeting civilian areas. This is why these losers never have and never will amount to anything. I would think almost everyone in Syria knows somebody who has been victims of attacks. I predict when SAA rolls into town the civilians amongst the losers will get their revenge.
