Earlier today, a rebel TOW missile crew of the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Division 13 targeted and killed around a dozen fighters of Kata’ib Hezbollah, an Iraqi paramilitary group which is allied to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The SAA maintains only a minor presence in southern Aleppo as it seems to be prioritizing its manpower on other frontlines.

The video follows an ongoing offensive in southern Aleppo which has seen rebel factions of Jaish al-Fatah capture at least 2 villages from pro-government troops in southern Aleppo.

Footage of the incident is available here:

Those weapons… It’s imperative for SAA and RUSAF to destroy rebel warehouses and weapons depots and to close the Turkish frontier as soon as possible…

It’s more imperative to send some Raduga built big fat suppository or some thermobaric bomb on those who pay for these TOWs : it’ll definitively cut the supplies… Time to send a Sukhoï with Khibiny aboard or some cruise missile…

Yes, but from 4km… Knowing that, at the actual moment, the longest sniper shoot ever on a 120*130cm target is 3695m since august 2015 and that it took a team of five and the target was only touched at the 21st shot and knowing that the shooter is the sharpest shooter we have in the french military… The longest military sniper kill is 2815m, there were only 5 kilss @+2km in history, one of them being a lucky shot with a Browning M2 machine gun in Vietnam. Well, there are now some new rifles with integrated balistic computer that are… Read more »

One of the men was waving a white flag! probably rebels who were surrendering to SDF checkpoint if you look at the yellow flag above the shed. Those men were in a queue being processed.
