The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has continued its success in the Aleppo Governorate by capturing the village of Al-Muslimiyya (Free Zone) earlier today. Al-Muslimiyya is strategically located south of the rebel-held “Aleppo Infantry School”, where the SAA and National Defense Forces (NDF) are preparing a siege to capture this vital area.
According to a military source: yesterday, an SAA contingent backed by the NDF, captured the main road between Al-Muslimiyya and the Aleppo Infantry School, killing scores of militants during the attack. The success of this operation paved the way for the SAA to capture the village of Al-Muslimiyya earlier today, linking the village to the main road.
North of the Handarat District, the SAA has engaged Islamic Front militants at Tal Al-Madafa – an area heavily fortified by the latter. Violent clashes are ongoing between the two groups, with the SAA pressing to capture the remaining areas inside this district.
