Syrian Army, Hezbollah begin new assault at strategic southern Aleppo district
Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard, backed by Hezbollah, began a new assault in the southern sector of Aleppo, striking the southern portion of the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project that is under the control of the jihadist rebels.
The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah began the new assault by storming the southern buildings inside the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project of southern Aleppo; this resulted in an intense battle with the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) that is still ongoing at the moment.
According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Aleppo City, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah managed to capture several buildings from the jihadist rebels this morning; however, without Hikmah Hill, these gains could be reversed rather quickly by Jaysh Al-Fateh.
Hikmah Hill is considered the key to capturing the southern sector of the 1070 Housing Project because it overlooks this imperative district.
