The Syrian Arab Army’s elite Republican Guard forces arrived to the Al-Assad Military Academy on Monday morning in order to help their embattled comrades recapture a number of sites from the jihadist rebels in southern Aleppo, including the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project and Hikmah School.

ANNA News followed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) into the 1070 Housing Project, filming the soldiers escorting civilians to safety, while they prepare to strike back against the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh.

 

According to a military source in Aleppo City, the Syrian Arab Army has begun their assault on the 1070 Housing Project; however, no gains have been reported as of yet.

The Syrian Armed Forces will need to recover the 1070 Housing Project in order to forestall the jihadist attempt to lift the two week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo.

Here is the truth : “The Syrian army troops and Russian air force repelled a massive militant attack today. More than 800 militants were killed, and 14 tanks, 10 infantry fighting vehicles, and more than 60 technical vehicles with mounted weapons were destroyed,” Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy said on Monday

The eyes of the world is upon you. You are the guardians of humanity and the last home for honor and sacrifice. crush the terrorists and have 0 mercy. Russian airforce aught to be relentless using EVERYTHING available. I think it might be time to battle test the FAOB. Strategic bombers better be on the way. No doubt the SAA will hold strong and recapture all lost on its own, but actually destroying most the terrorists of Syria is a reality today as they are all located in one area. Time for payback for the loss of SAA lives, civilians… Read more »

The SAA are really like the French; they surrender immediately! Two air forces helping them, and they fold in a day. Amazing.

First: SAA is hampered by poor leadership; it is also very poorly armed, devastated by 6 years of war and sanctions. A mere 2 or 3 atgm’s would have likely prevented this collapse by taking out vbied’s from their positions. Militants have been using the very same tactic time after time. But saa leadership coul not learn a new trick even if it were to save their lives

Those enemys are not usual figthers, that mecenarys partly specialists from all over the world. The SAA and some allies is fighting on ground alone and thats for years. The SAA needs fresh and well trained ground forces. The Russians have at the moment only few figther planes in Syria left (I think 12). That not much. They had reduced it in March incresingly. Hopefully these warships and plane carrier comes soon to double up the forces.

Like the fall of Tal Eis, Khan Tuman etc. was back and forth? That entire stretch has been lost since it all fell.

The artilery base is surrounded and about to fall. Russian AF is a freaking disgrace. So cheap they will not use a single guided munition. What complete BS when terrorist are mightier than Russian and Syria combined.

Artilery/missile base is surrounded and about to fall; Russian AF nowhere to be seen. They are likely to come when it falls to drop a few ceremonious bombs, just for show. Turkish military dressed as jihadists is devastating Aleppo. Saa, poorly armed and trained will mot be able to resist on its own. Rumors of Russia complicity in all of this. I guess Aleppo is going to Turkey.
