The jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab launched the 3rd phase of their large-scale offensive in Aleppo City on Tuesday, targeting the Syrian government controlled Al-Ramouseh District in the southern sector of the provincial capital.

The offensive started off on the right foot for Fatah Halab, as their combatants managed to enter the Al-Ramouseh District from their positions at the Sadkop Garages after a successful tunnel bombing; however, this success proved to be limited, as they could not find any infiltration point to bypass the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses.

Following a long and gruesome battle, the jihadist rebels were forced to retreat from Al-Huwayz Hill and the nearby sawmills, leaving the Syrian Arab Army in full control of the Al-Ramouseh District.

Making matters worse for the jihadist rebels, they sustained a high number of casualties during the battle on Tuesday, marking this day as one of their most devastating defeats this year in the Aleppo Governorate.

I wish the final victory to SAA,.glory to the brave SAA’s soldiers and their chief Bashar al Assad. As italian and european I want to blame what the usa and their allies (France and Britain) are doing in Syria, and accuse them for their criminal behaviour.
From Italy, Piero.

See what the Russians military advisers have done? They’ve turned Aleppo into a Stalingrad. The terrorists are forced to be on the offensive against heavily defended positions, and will be counter attacked immediately after failing, rolling back any gains. Repeat until no terrorists left.

Nope, the Stalingrad case is more like Deir-Ezzor.

Stalingrad worked because Germans were starved and had no winter clothes.

I would urge SAA to copy the methods used Damasqus to secure hospital and dig 5 to 10 m deep ditches around most important objects. This prevents tunnel bombs and storming militants as well as offer some defense against vbieds.

couple of hundreds or thousand’s. RuAF said 1 or 2 days ago that there were 800 jihadist killed, most of them die because of airstrikes. The total amount of jihadist in this battle started with 8000, which is between 5 and 10% of all jihadist in Syria (including Al-Qaeda affiliates).

The jihadist left in Syria are not up to 30,000. They have all been killed. The death toll is in 10s of thousands.

The total number including ISIS would be around 100 k, but that’s just a personal guess
