Last night, the Syrian army and Liwa al-Quds (a Palestinian pro-government militia) fully secured the strategic Hurmah hill north of the Sheikh Maqsud Neighborhood of Aleppo City. The control of Hurmah hill allowed the government forces to set fire control of the Shuqayyif Neighborhood, mostly controlled by the Jaish al-Fatah operation room. The nearby Army Base remains a constested area between the loyalists and the militants.
The Syrian army’s artillery also set a fire control of the Jandoul roundabout, decreasing the militants’ ability to maneuver in the area.
Meanwhile, the Syrian government forces have repelled a major militant attack on the Kindi Hospital. By October 2, pro-government forces have reported some 60 militants killed in this area. Now, the Kindi Hospital remains under the control of the army and its allies.
