Syrian government forces have liberated two more districts of Aleppo city – Sheikh Lutfi and Majeh – from members of Jaish al-Fatah militant coalition, according to local sources. Earlier today, the Syrian army and its allies liberated the district of al-Shair.
As SouthFront predicted, the eastern Aleppo pocket is shrinking with no chances for jihadi factions to repell the ongoing government advance. So, the full liberation of Aleppo is just the matter of time:
With liberation of areas north of the Aleppo Citadel and appearing of possibility of fall of Sheikh Saeed and nearby areas, terms and conditions of surrender agreement offered to al-Nusra and its allies by the government will be step up.
In case of total collapse of al-Nusra defenses in central in southern Aleppo, the army and its allies will likely withdraw from any ideas to make a deal with the al-Qaeda linked opposition and will purge all remaining militants in the area despite the hysteria in the mainstream media. All these developments will likely took place in coming few weeks.
Pro-militant sources call “opposition fighters” to withdraw from the areas north of the Aleppo Citadel to the southern part of the Aleppo pocket.
