Aleppo, Syria (5:45 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched a major offensive last week to lift the three-week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City.

This southern Aleppo offensive would yield a significant number of gains for Jaysh Al-Fateh, as they seized several sites from the Syrian Armed Forces, including the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, Al-Ramouseh District, and Aleppo Artillery Academy.

Despite making great progress in the southern sector of Aleppo City, Jaysh Al-Fateh has been unable to resupply the eastern neighborhoods of the provincial capital.

The reason Jaysh Al-Fateh cannot resupply east Aleppo is due to the Syrian Arab Army’s fire control over the main road that leads from the Al-Ramouseh District to the eastern neighborhoods.

As long as the Syrian Arab Army and their allies maintain control over the 3000 Housing Project, the jihadist rebels will be unable to use Ramouseh Road due to security concerns.

It think this offensive is going to end up being too expensive for jihadists… They’re gaining ground by pouring thousands of men into the battlefield and taking all the looses with more reinforcements… The killing spree must be overwhelming in both sides, but I guess the rebels are taking the worst part of it. I think a 4/1 dead jihadists per soldier rate must be near the real one.
In the end, I don’t think they’ll be able to keep their gains for much longer and the counterattack by the SAA is going to be devastating…

I wouldn’t be surprise if SAA made a strategic withdrawal so the Russian could bombard the area with mininum risk to there own forces and civilians.

the real number of jihadists lost so far, never mind propaganda. Is about 350. Rebels always mourn and release info and names. Seems like 350 would be at least the number of dead government ones too. So more like 1:1 atm. Rebels are sending everything into aleppo, this can become another idlib if SAA does not take it seriously and russia stops using pitter pat ‘airstrikes’ and cheap out. Want to see real effective airstrikes, look at the US ones in manbijj. Now those are f*****g airstrikes. Jdam sorties. Proper ones. w*f is russia waiting for to mass Uragan, TOS1,… Read more »

@MarkSleboda1 Question: If East Aleppo is largely depopulated, why is the SAA not able to go in & kill terrorists there?

If the rumors are true 2000 fools have died trying to rescue several CIA/Mossad agents trapped in Eastern Aleppo. “Goyim were born only to serve us.” 2000 pathetic fools + 500 government soldiers = 2500 Arabs. Congrats and happy killing each other. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen… This is stupidity and these “jihadists” are idiots.

I would call east Aleppo under partial siege. Not full siege though as they still have a connection.
