On Friday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized a large chunk of territory west of Aleppo International Airport and entered several rebel-held neighborhoods which have not seen government control since 2012.

Following up on a string of advances, the SAA’s Tiger Forces (elite assault troops) gained ground inside Halwaniyah, Tariq Al-Bab, Karam Al-Jazmati, and the Al-Maysar districts.

New footage of urban warfare operations in the nearby Ma’asaraniyah district also shows scores of dead insurgents and hundreds of civilians seeking safety in government-held areas.


Despite almost four years of relative deadlock, the current rate of government advances suggest Aleppo could be fully restored under government control in weeks.

Notably, all the SAA’s elite factions have been deployed in the battle for Aleppo, suggesting its liberation to be the top priority of the Military High Command.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
