ALEPPO, SYRIA (6:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’ (SAA) returned to the strategic Castillo Highway after the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) opened fire on the Russian military and Syrian Red Crescent Society.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the Syrian Arab Army returned to the Castillo Highway after rebel fighters attacked the government controlled portion of the roadway.
The return of the Syrian Arab Army to the Castillo Highway comes just two hours after they withdrew as far north as 3.5 km in the Al-Malaah Farms area of northern Aleppo.
A military source in Aleppo city told Al-Masdar News that the Russian Marines near the Castillo Highway are furious with the Americans over their failure to control their “moderate” rebels.
Making matters worse, the people of east Aleppo will go another day without humanitarian aid, thanks in large part to the Free Syrian Army’s refusal to open their portion of the Castillo Highway.
