SouthFront: Syrian Army tightens the noose around terrorist-held Aleppo
News emerged this morning that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had advanced further in Aleppo’s Layramoun district, capturing some 12 building blocks from Islamist insurgents.
This brings SAA soldiers in Aleppo city even closer to the Tiger Forces which are still held up at the Castello road, north of Aleppo. If these two government forces reach each other, rebel districts in Aleppo city will be cut off not only by fire control but actual checkpoints.
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported that a secret U.S. military base had been struck by Russian jets at the Al-Tanf border crossing in southeastern Homs in a rare case of direct hostility between the two countries.
