Syrian Army Scores More Victories against Terrorists East of Aleppo City
After the liberation of the strategic al-Zohour heights that is near Old Sheikh Najjar Industrial Zone and taking control over Hananou Housing Project, the terrorists’ positions and control have been significantly weakened in the Eastern part of Aleppo.
In their large-scale operation, the army soldiers and popular forces advanced against terrorists in the flank near the factories in Old Sheikh Najjar and Jabal Badrou district.
The army men managed to fortify their positions in a major part of Arz al-Hamra and Jabal Badrou and expanded their offensives against militants in the Youth Housing Project and the Hananou Housing Project and advanced in these two battlefields too.
Jabal Badrou is adjacent to Sheikh Najjar and Aleppo international airport and the current battle in this region could decide the fate of the war in Eastern Aleppo.
Pro-government forces, meantime, took control of several workshops in the Old Sheikh Najjar Industrial Zone.
The Syrian Army troops and the Lebanese Hezbollah Fighters continued their advances against Jeish al-Fatah in Hananou Housing Project and seized control of a number of regions on Tuesday.
After wining control over terrorists’ operations room in Hananou Housing Project and capturing five bases of militants on Monday, the Syrian government forces, including soldiers and Hezbollah fighters, continued their advances and took back al-Sha’abi Bazaar and al-Atfa’eh square.
The army units also seized control over a highway parallel with this flank.
The army’s artillery units also shelled terrorists’ centers and positions in Hananou.
The army men also managed to advance against militants’ positions from the direction of al-Jandoul square towards al-Ba’eidin.
The government forces increased their control over the positions along the street connecting al-Jandoul to al-Ba’eidin.
In the meantime, a military source disclosed that the army troops are about to expand their operation in the neighborhoods of al-Ba’eidin and al-Oweijeh in Northeastern parts of Aleppo city in order to increase pressure on the terrorists trapped in the Eastern districts.
Opposition-linked internet websites said Nouralddeen al-Zinki and Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) militant groups have dispatched a large number of fighters to Hananou Housing Project to slow down the army’s rapid advances in the district.
