Syrian Army Liberates Northern Part of Aleppo City Video
The Syrian Army and its allies broke militant defenses and liberated significant areas in northeastern Aleppo. Last weekend, Syrian government forces liberated Hanano, Jabal Badro, Inzarat and Handariyah neighborhoods, the Ba’ideen Roundabout and the Ba’ideen Square and seized significant areas in Al-Sakhur neighborhood. On November 28, government forces liberated Handariyah and al-Shakhur neighborhoods, encircling Sheikh Khizir. Now, the operation is ongoing in Sheikh Khizir. Local sources say that most of militants have fled to the Old Aleppo. So, the main work is to remove explosive devices and secure the area. Sheikh Khizir will be under the full control of government forces in the coming hours. De-facto, nrthern Aleppo fell into hands of the Syrian army and its allies.
wow that was about 1/3 of the rebel held area. At this pace SAA just needs 2 more weekends. haha. Probably during the past month or so SAA and its allies were just testing the defenses and coordinating logistics to deliver a heavy weight punch. The Russian air force then soften the rebels with sustained heavy air campaign. Classic. Russians might not have the precision of US weapons but given its budget, the strategic coordination of logistic, military, diplomatic, and media was first class. Maybe Aleppo will be liberated before the end of 2016.
Now that is a gain! This is a big step toward the end of the war!
South Front how many more will fall in this pointless war of attrition? there is no Aleppo any more. only the ruins of what once was. when will this end? can your “analysis and intelligence” tell me that?
rebels given lot of chance…what else can be done…city would be built again but rebels and fanatics if left alone would have made this a birth place for terror effecting the whole world…Infact SAA fight is for us all and I salute them….from India.
