June 30, 2016 proved to be another active day around Aleppo. The so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) provided footage of anti-tank guided missile attacks against pro-government forces in southern Aleppo, with one 122mm artillery piece and T-72 destroyed.

To the north of Aleppo, Mallah farms continues to be contested in a pitched battle between Jabhat al-Nusra and SAA ground forces. Reports indicate that after a temporary retreat, the SAA was able to reclaim all areas lost, at the cost of 30 soldiers. Jabhat al-Nusra lost 100 militants in their defeat.

In Manbij, northern Syria, the YPG and SDF units reported a successful assault on an ISIS mortar factory . While ISIS launched a counter-offensive north of Manbij along the Sajur river near Dadat.

In the Latakia countryside, Jayash al-Fatah, Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham launched a succession of attacks on Tal Al-Qal’at and Kinsibba. After gaining fire control over Kinsibba through the capture of Tal Al-Qal’at, the jihadists were able to wrest control of the second village from SAA forces.

Early reports indicate that the pro-government militia forces lost four T-55 tanks and two BMP infantry fighting vehicles.

In northeast Dumayr, the FSA regained ground in Jabal al-Afa’i from ISIS , while ISIS managed to take control of pro-government barriers in the al-Talilat area of eastern Palmyra.

    When are Russia and China going to seriously take party in this? I will hate to see the SAA, the true owners of the country, defeated by international terrorism and USA/NATO oil corporatives.

      me too. And I don’t understand how the rebels can use artillery indiscriminately – the russians should pulverize their guns as soon as they shot two rounds.

        In my opinion, it might be all those makeshift bombards they make from gas canisters and such devices, without mentioning all the smuggling they get through the turkish border (possibly using tunnels by now).
        In Early february. I was all hyped seeing the 103rd Republican Guard “Sweeping through the Turkey-Syria border, even saying they would capture kabani and liberate Latakia in less than a week. I wonder what happened.

      The jewish Zionists are behind ISIS and Al-Nusra and the rest of the terrorists, I guess its hard for Russia to be fully commited to this with the Israelis doing their best to stop them. Hopefully with the Iraqi army gaining ground they can help the SAA, Hezbollah and Iran.
