Syrian Army in Full Control over Al-Khalidiyah in Aleppo City
For several months, Al-Nusra Front and their allies have tried to seize the Al-Khalidiyah Industrial Sector that is located at the eastern axis of the Al-Layramoun, however, they have failed to bypass the defenses of the Syrian army so far.
Finally, after more than 8 months of back-and-forth fighting between the Al-Layramoun and Al-Khalidiyah Quarters, the Syrian government forces backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – seized the opportunity and cleared out this part of Aleppo City, capturing several building blocks that leads into Al-Layramoun’s Industrial Sector.
In addition to their success at the Al-Khalidiyah Quarter, the Syrian army backed by the pro-government Palestinian resistance group “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade) and the National Defense Forces – cleared out the remaining pockets of resistance near Building 11 in the Al-Zahra Association Quarter of west Aleppo.
With winter coming, the militant groups inside the provincial capital of Aleppo are facing a serious dilemma regarding their primary supply route from the Idlib Governorate, as the Syrian army continues their offensive along the strategic Aleppo-Damascus Highway.
