Syrian Army, Hezbollah capture Air Defense Base in southern Aleppo
Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah made their first major push at the southern outskirts of Aleppo in several weeks, capturing a number of sites from the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).
The assault began with the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah surprising the jihadist rebels along the Khan Touman Road, killing a number of militants in the process.
As a result of this surprise attack, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah managed to impose full control over the Air Defense Base and small hilltop of Tal SyriaTel along the main road to the jihadist-stronghold of Khan Touman.
Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are pushing south towards the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway), which is also the location of Khan Touman and the ICARDA Farms.
