Syrian Army, Hezbollah launch new attack at key military site in southern Aleppo
Syrian Armed Forces, backed by Hezbollah, launched a new assault at the strategic Artillery Academy in southern Aleppo after sending a large number of reinforcements to this front yesterday.
Led by the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard and Hezbollah, the pro-government forces stormed the eastern perimeter of the Artillery Academy, where they were confronted by a large contingent of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) militants.
No gains have been reported at the Artillery Academy thus far; however, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are still in the first phase of their assault on this imperative military installation.
Meanwhile, south of Aleppo City, the Syrian Armed Forces, alongside the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), launched a new assault on the village of Al-Qarassi.
Al-Qarassi is considered the gateway to the strategic town of Khan Touman; and if captured by the Syrian Armed Forces, it will give them fire control over the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).
