DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:20 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 800th Regiment stormed Sheikh Sa’eed in southern Aleppo, targeting Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) defenses at the western perimeter of this large district.
Backed by Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), the Syrian Arab Army has repeatedly attempted to advance past the Sheikh Sa’eed Brigade; however, their last two attempts have failed due to heavy resistance from Jaysh Al-Fateh.
Preliminary reports from Sheikh Sa’eed this afternoon indicate that the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies have advanced inside the western part of the district; furthermore, they have managed to reach the district’s bridge once again after an intense series of firefights with Jaysh Al-Fateh.
Also helping the Syrian ground forces is the Russian Air Force; they have reportedly carried out more than 20 airstrikes over the southern Aleppo countryside today.
