Moments ago, the Syrian Armed Forces fully reclaimed the Minyan neighbourhood after two Jaish al-Fateh suicide bombings paved the way for Islamist militants to infiltrate the western Aleppo district earlier today.

After fierce urban warfare raged for hours, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Interior Ministry’s special forces were finally able to retake the entire neighbourhood and push Jaish al-Fateh militants back into the Dahiyat al-Assad district, further south.

Control of the Minyan district is highly important to the SAA as it safeguards hundreds of thousands of civilians in the densely populated New Aleppo suburbs.

A military source informing Al-Masdar News on frontline events in Aleppo confirmed that the government counter-offensive was conducted exclusively by Syrian troops. Nevertheless, pro-government paramilitary factions such as Hezbollah and Harakat al-Nujaba maintain a heavy presence in the countryside south of Aleppo city.

Effectively, due to the recapture of the Minyan neighbourhood, the SAA has reversed all of Jaish al-Fateh’s territorial gains in Aleppo today.

Meanwhile, news also emerged on Saturday that the Tiger Forces’ renown commander-in-chief Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan had arrived in Aleppo city alongside the Desert Hawks Brigade to spearhead attacks on besieged rebel-held districts in eastern Aleppo.

In the past 48 hours, a dozen Jaish al-Fateh suicide bombings have targeted the SAA in western Aleppo. Among the volunteer jihadists were several foreigners, including Batah al-Jazwari (Jabhat Fatah al-Sham fighter from Saudi Arabia), Hozefa al-Terky and Abdel Aziz al-Turki (both Turkistan Islamic Party militants from western China) and two other unnamed individuals from Turkey and Egypt.

Good, good, good. The jihadis must be pissed to see their main offensive failed. Maybe it’s time to crush them by sudden counter-attacks and create a kotek. But are the allies strong and numerous enough to do that ?

Why doesn’t sheikh Muheisni drives a VBIED? He’d also be in paradise tonight! In fact, according to their logics, I don’t understand why they do not ALL make suicide attacks! Well, at least Jim Jones’ Guyana or the Order of the Solar Temple had the guts to practise what they preached as they all committed suicide! Moreover, they could do all their suicide attacks vs. Daesh. And why seeking to rescue their ‘brothers’ in eastern Aleppo? If tey’re “martyred” by SyAAF or VKS or SAA+allies, thy’ll go to heaven too! Their strategy makes no sense! If I was sure to… Read more »

Like they did months and months and months ago, they need to get back to where they used to be, Tal Eis, Khan Touman, cutting off the M5, we shouldn’t be settling for the scraps around the 1070s, why can’t we see the SAA have gains on the scale of the rebels? Like how the rebels took a mahusive chunk from Eis to Rashideen in mere days.

You can see that Saudi cockroach Al Muheisini is overflowing with hiocrisy, however most expressions from suicide bombers rises seriouus doubt abot their IQ. I just cant wait to see Al Muhesini captured and sent to a concentration camp , put on a diet work hard enough to last 2 months

AMN is generally very accurate for such infos while, as taqiyya (deceive/lie) being one of the principles of jihad, you simply can’t trust anything these terrorists are saying Remember the false flag they did in east-Goutha in 2013, launching sarin nerve gas (analysed as coming from Libyan arsenals) against civilians then accusing SAA. Same thing for the alleged strike on a school in Idlib yesterday.
AMN may not be the fastest source of info but at least, they verify what they publish most of the time.
And well, your drone pic comes from al-Zinki, you know, those who chop Palestinian children’s heads!

AMN is mainly based on sources in SAA and Hezbollah which are unreliable sources with motivation to show only their success and never their failures.
Of course I condemn any barbaric acts like beheading people, but lets not start to discuss war crimes as you know the SAA and Putin have bad reputation about it, and it is not related to the picture that I posted.
This picture was taken today by the rebels showing that they apparently control this neighborhood, of course it may be a lie but I didn’t see a better proof yet.

Again mentally deranged… can you please explain how that picture proves that your terrorists control the neighbourhod?

Indeed it doesn’t prove with high degree of certainty, but first you can’t see there any SAA units as should have been if it was recaptured, and second it make sense that if a rebels drone will fly above the SAA they probably will shoot it down, but you see noting like this. In any case a picture is a better proof then words.

AMN also quotes the SOHR as a presumably reliable source. The SOHR is not exactly government friendly. So, I think you can throw your insinuation of bias out the window.

When you start to talk like a civilized person, then I will answer you, but I guess that when people have no knowledge they start to curse like an animal because they have nothing smart to say. Till then I think the admin of this site should ban you for using such disgusting language.

Like you Said, it is a “movie” I dont care about your movies, terrorists made many movies dressed themselves as security forces, in any case it is excellent that your terrorist friends got wrecked and hunted down wherever they are, did you think you can kill civilians and then run inside a mosque???? wi will hunt you down even under your bed, inside your toilet, everywhere.Oh i almost forgot calling yourself david wont hide the fact that you are a wahabi terrorist, we will waste you even if you cal;e yourself Alice you retard
