URGENT: Syrian Army Kicks Off New Phase of Military Operations in Eastern Aleppo
The Syrian army started fresh military operations in Baeedin district just to the North of the Eastern districts in a bid to increase pressure on the terrorist groups already besieged by the government troops in those areas.
In the early hours of the military operations, Iraqi popular forces managed to take control of nearly 40 residential complexes from the terrorist groups.
Earlier on Sunday, a field source said that the recent victories of the Syrian government forces in Eastern Aleppo, specially the capture of Hanano Housing Project, have pushed Jeish al-Fatah to the threshold of complete collapse.
The source said advances of the Syrian Army troops and popular forces in the district of Jabal (mount) Badrou earlier today, seizure of Hanano Housing Project district on Saturday and taking control over more positions in al-Ard al-Hamra district have pushed the terrorist front in the Eastern part of Aleppo city into unavoidable failure.
The source added that imminent liberation of Jabal Badrou by the army men is also expected any moment.
After the capture of Hanano Housing Project by the army soldiers, the terrorist groups retreated towards nearby districts, including the districts of al-Heidariyeh and al-Sakhour.
Fierce clashes are currently underway between the government forces and terrorists near the districts of al-Heidariyeh and al-Sakhour and the army men are about to free these districts too, according to two army officers.
“Exit of a number of civilians from al-Heidariyeh district has made the terrorists so nervous and disappointed that some of them have decided to hand over this district to the army soldiers,” they added.
The army is also about to carry out a large-scale offensive towards terrorists’ positions in the district of al-Sakhour that is one of the main strongholds of the terrorist groups and has witnessed popular protests calling for the exit of terrorists from this district.
A field source disclosed earlier today that hundreds of fresh soldiers have arrived in Aleppo city to join the Syrian government forces’ operation in the Eastern districts of the city.
“Approximately a thousand fresh soldiers have joined the Syrian army to accelerate government forces’ advances against Jeish al-Fatah in Aleppo city and hit terrorists’ positions in several flanks,” the source said.
The source said that several thousand army soldiers, including Tiger Forces and Desert Hawks, have joined the pro-government forces in Aleppo in recent months, “while more fresh soldiers will arrive in Aleppo in coming weeks.”
Another military source also disclosed that the army men are fully ready to enter the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city, adding that the army commandoes and special forces have been deployed in positions overlooking the Eastern districts of Aleppo and are waiting for their commanders’ order to start operations.
