Liwaa Al-Quds, Syrian Army storm the Handarat Camp in northern Aleppo
The Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard, backed by Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), launched their second large-scale assault at the Handarat Refugee Camp today, targeting the eastern neighborhoods that are under Fatah Halab’s control.
According to local sources in northern Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and Liwaa Al-Quds entered the Handarat Camp after securing the Shaher District, which is located at the eastern sector of this former refugee camp.
Intense clashes are ongoing inside the camp, as the Syrian Armed Forces and Liwaa Al-Quds attempt to reestablish control over this key district in Aleppo’s northern sector.
Handarat Camp was initially recaptured by Liwaa Al-Quds last week; however; a swift counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels forced the pro-government forces to withdraw east towards the nearby Bureijj District.
