Terrorists Fleeing Eastern Aleppo in Large Numbers
The fear of being trapped in the Syrian army’s tightening siege has forced a larger number of terrorists to escape the regions under their control in the Eastern districts of Aleppo city.
Tens of terrorists have fled al-Sha’ar district to al-Sokri district fearing that their positions in al-Halvanieh district will soon fall into the hands of the army and its allies.
The terrorists will lose the Eastern parts of al-Sha’ar region if al-Halvanieh collapses and for the same reason the terrorists have been forced to move towards the Southern districts.
The Syrian army men and Hezbollah fighters managed to move towards al-Halvanieh region after continuing their advances in al-Sakhour, Jabal al-Badrou and Arz al-Hamra regions.
“After breaking the terrorists’ defense lines at the entrance of al-Halvanieh, the Syrian army troops have entered the region and purged the Northeastern parts of the district of terrorists,” a battlefield source said.
The source noted that tough battle is still underway in the Northern parts of al-Halvanieh, and said, “By purging the terrorists from this region, the Northeastern section of the International Aleppo Airport will grow more secure.”
The terrorists’ defense lines in the Eastern parts of Aleppo city were falling in a domino fashion and the Syrian army was chasing the terrorists who are fleeing the region.
The Syrian army and resistance forces were looking for the militants who have left Haydarya and al-Sakhor districts.
Earlier today, terrorist commanders stationed in the Eastern parts of Aleppo have threatened Abdullah Muhammad al-Muhaysini, a senior al Qaeda-linked cleric and the religious leader of Jeish al-Fatah coalition of terrorist groups, that they will be forced to give up fight and surrender the city to the army in the next two days if not rescued from outside.
According to al-Mayadeen news channel, also a number of terrorists have called for the Syrian government’s green buses to take them to other regions.
Other reports also said that a number of militants accuse their comrades of withdrawing support for them, saying that they have left for the Northern parts of Aleppo to fight for Turkey in return for $200 payments.
The Syrian army’s rapid advances in the Eastern districts of Aleppo has perplexed the terrorist groups and created chaos among them.
The Syrian government’s tapping of contacts and radio exchanges between the terrorists in and outside Aleppo showed that the militants who are stationed outside the city are asking their comrades to reconstruct their lines immediately to prevent any further collapse.
The Syrian army started special operations in Aleppo after several humanitarian pauses declared by Damascus and Moscow to give a chance to the civilian population as well as the militants to leave the Eastern parts of the city through 8 corridors, and managed to take full control of the Northern flank of the Aleppo city’s Eastern districts.
The army units have taken back 20 square kilometers of the total 45 square kilometers of Eastern Aleppo while scores of terrorists were killed and wounded in tough battle with the Syrian army soldiers.
Thousands of civilians, including hundreds of children and newborn babies, have also left the Eastern part of the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo in recent days.
Meanwhile, hundreds of militants laid down their arms and left Eastern Aleppo through the special corridor.
With recapturing the Northern part of Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo, Syrian army forces can now turn their attention to the last half of the East Aleppo pocket.
The Russian Defense Ministry’s Peace Cooperation Center in Syria said Sunday that infighting between terrorist groups in Aleppo has intensified as militants are trying to prevent other comrades from leaving the Syrian city.
Clashes between militant groups have intensified because some militants, who are controlling Eastern Aleppo, wanted to leave the city but were encountered by the most hardline groups,” the center’s statement added.
An informed source in Eastern Aleppo also said last Saturday that Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) terrorist group was in dire conditions and trying to persuade civilians to join them to slow down the Syrian army’s devastating advances in the region.
Local sources in Eastern Aleppo have also reported that the terrorists have lost confidence in their commanders after their repeated unfulfilled promises on breaking the army’s siege and their morale has weakened after heavy defeats and sustaining abundant casualties and damages.
After continued defeats and nearly two months of insistence on remaining in the city and rejecting the army’s several chances to leave Eastern Aleppo with their weapons, terrorists are now facing the realities of war as their comrades’ massive attacks on the city to break the army’s several-month-long siege have all ended up in fiasco.
