VIDEO: Syrian Forces Launch Operation to Recapture Handarat Camp in Aleppo
“The Syrian pro-government forces have stormed terrorists’ positions in the Eastern neighborhoods of Handarat Camp after they secured the nearby Shaher district,” the sources said.
“Syrian forces have already managed to break through the first defense lines of the terrorists in Handarat Camp,” the source said, adding that “another round of attack would be needed to push back Takfiri militant”.
“A large number of terrorists have been deployed in the camp, so, this time the terrorist groups will suffer more casualties due to the preparedness of the government forces and their familiarity with the camp’s streets and neighborhoods,” the sources underlined.
Earlier reports said that Syrian Army commanders pulled their forces back from Handarat Palestinian Refugees Camp in Northern countryside of Aleppo city on Sunday morning to evade more casualties.
“Syrian Army soldiers and their Palestinian allies from Liwa al-Quds, who had captured Handarat camp on Saturday morning, repelled several large-scale attacks of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists on Saturday night, but on Sunday morning army commanders ordered forces to retreat from the battlefield temporarily,” the sources said.
“The Syrian army soldiers and their allies seem to have regrouped and are ready to launch fresh rounds of offensives to recapture the camp,” the sources added.
Some military analysts believe that government forces’ withdrawal from Handarat was a tactical move, FNA reported.
