DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued its major advance inside the western corridor of Aleppo on Thursday, targeting the key Al-Assad Suburb that was mostly under Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) control.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to break-through the jihadist front-lines, capturing much of the Al-Assad Suburb’s southern sector after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels on Thursday night.

According to a military source that is embedded in Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to capture the Science Academy and nearby church after breaking through Jaysh Al-Fateh’s first-line of defense in the southern sector.

With the aforementioned sites under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces were now in control of half the Al-Assad Suburb, leaving only the western sector left to capture from the jihadist rebels.

So far today, the Syrian Armed Forces have only shelled the western part of the Al-Assad Suburb; they are expected to launch another major attack in the coming hours, as they look to expel the remaining Jaysh Al-Fateh fighters from the area.
