The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, backed by Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, launched a counter-offensive at the Al-Malaah Farms of northern Aleppo on Wednesday in order to recover the territory they lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) this past weekend.

The jihadist rebel assault proved successful after two VBIEDs (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) struck the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the northern farms of Al-Malaah.

As a result of these VBIED strikes, the Syrian Armed Forces withdrew north from the Al-Malaah Farms to the Handarat Mountains in order to regroup against the jihadist rebel factions in northern Aleppo.

According to a member of the Tiger Forces, their units did not suffer many casualties; however, in order to prevent this from happening, they had to withdraw from the Al-Malaah Farms.

The source added that the Tiger Forces are planning to attack once again in order to prevent the jihadist rebels from fortifying their positions at this strategic site.

While Erdogan is apologizing to Putin, his terrorists are still getting arms and reinforcements. Putin should not have normalized commerce with Turkey, yet. Putin should have demanded some concessions from Erdogan, like closing the borders to terrorists, no more supporting of terrorists!

The first ceasefire was the biggest mistake constrained by Russia to Syria and Iran. So called rebels could be equipped later well much more than SAA and its allies to stop their initial advances.

They can’t win the war if they run away when they suffer a few casualties. Al-Nusra doesn’t and that’s why they hang on to the areas they recently took.

SAA are gaining ground in Damascus…where terrorist have been defeated and they dont have any chance in the capital!…terrorist just survive and be strong near Syrian border…maybe Putin and Edorgan agreement can stop financial and weapons resources to them as Endorgan have economic problems and PKK are attacking Turquis army with Russian made ATGM Kornet…
