DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s High Command announced on Tuesday evening that their forces are preparing for a new military operation in Aleppo’s northern countryside.
“Our military operations will focus on the towns of Haritan, Anadan, Hayyan, and Kafr Hamra,” the commander of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces,” Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan, stated on Tuesday.
“We will unleash hell onto those towns if the terrorists do not surrender to our forces,” Colonel Hassan added.
The aforementioned towns are located in the ‘Anandan Plains of northwest Aleppo; they have long been under the control of the jihadist rebels, beginning in early 2013.
Earlier this year, the Syrian Armed Forces began a military operation to capture these towns in northwest Aleppo; however, they were forced to halt the attack in favor of the Palmyra offensive.
