Gov’t Forces Getting Ready for Fresh Phase of Operations South of Syria’s Aleppo

27 December 2015 15:16


Military sources announced on Sunday that commanders of the Syrian Army troops, popular forces and Hezbollah fighters in North of Syria have held several coordination meetings in preparation for the third phase of large-scale operations South of Aleppo province.

“The Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iraqi Harakat al-Nujaba have been preparing for Phase 3 of their Southern Aleppo operation, which will require them to advance in the South along the important Aleppo-Damascus Highway to enter the Idlib province from the Northeast,” the sources said.

“Phase 3 of the Southern Aleppo operation will also be one of the most violent battles to come in Northern Syria, as several thousands militants from al-Nusra Front, Harakat Ahrar al-Sham, Liwaa Suqour al-Sham, and Jeish al-Islam are waiting for the imminent attack of the pro-government forces along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway,” the sources added.

Observers say 2016 will be a very important year for all parties involved in this war.

Last week, the Syrian army and their allies from Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba, and the National Defense Forces (NDF) completed the second phase of their Southern Aleppo operation after they captured the strategic town of Khan Touman and the village of al-Khalidiyah; this resulted in the obstruction of the terrorists’ main supply line from Idlib to Aleppo.

A report said on Friday that large groups of fresh forces have arrived in al-Hadher to join the Syrian Army and its allies to launch a new phase of operations to take back the strategic Aleppo-Idlib highway from militants’ control.

“A massive wave of Hezbollah and Iraqi popular forces have arrived in the town of al-Hadher in order to begin the third phase of large-scale operation in Aleppo province’s Southern territories,” the sources said.

“The main objective for these reinforcements will be the capture of the Aleppo-Idlib axis that has been under the control of the militant groups well over two and a half years,” the sources added.
