BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – It did not take long for the Syrian Arab Army to repel the jihadist offensive in west Aleppo today, as their forces not only halted Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s advance, but also, launched their own offensive.

Led by their Republican Guard forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed several points in the Al-Zahra’a and Layramoun quarters of west Aleppo; this resulted in a fierce battle between their forces and the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

According to local sources in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army has made some preliminary gains at the Layramoun axis; however, it is still too early to tell whether or not they will be able to maintain control of this area.

While this assault is likely to yield no significant progress, the purpose of this counter-offensive is to test the jihadist defense in west Aleppo and deter any more attacks in the near the future.

El ejercito Sirio no debe estar esperando por mucho tiempo, debe tomar la iniciativa de lanzar la ofensiva, Los mercenarios están probando y están acumulando mas hombres provenientes de Edlib, junto con los transferidos de otros lugares, mas el apoyo de Turquía por donde ingresan armas y municiones, seguro que habrá una ofensiva por parte de los mercenarios.
