An alliance of jihadi groups have taken over Minyan on October 29 as part of a wider offensive to lift the siege imposed on rebel-controlled areas in the city’s east.
A field correspondent told Al-Masdar News that the pro-government Desert hawks fighters – who have been recently deployed to Aleppo – are now leading the military operations in Minyan.
