Syrian Army launches fresh assault in southern Aleppo
Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed by Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) and Ba’ath Battalions, launched a fresh assault on the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project in southern Aleppo, targeting the southern sector of this strategic district.
Led by the elite “Tiger Forces,” the Syrian Arab Army and their allies stormed Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) first line of defense at the 1070 Project’s southern sector; this resulted in a fierce battle that is still ongoing at the moment.
Backing their ground units storming the district, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) conducted their first airstrikes over the southern Aleppo countryside, hitting several Jaysh Al-Fateh targets along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).
This latest attack by the Syrian Armed Forces does not violate the ceasefire agreement because it is not against “moderate” rebel groups.
Jaysh Al-Fateh is comprised of several jihadist rebel groups, making them a legitimate target for the Syrian Armed Forces and the Russian Air Force, per the ceasefire agreement.
