AlMasdarNews reports: ALEPPO, SYRIA (4:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed by Hezbollah and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), launched a large-scale offensive in southern Aleppo tonight, targeting the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project, Souq Al-Jabas (Aqrab), and Hikmah Hill.
Led by the 4th Mechanized Division and Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies managed to capture most of Hikmah Hill and Souq Al-Jabas after a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) tonight.
According to an Al-Masdar correspondent that is embedded with the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies are on the verge of establishing full control over Hikmah School and Souq Al-Jabal, which means the jihadist rebels will be forced to retreat from the 1070 Housing Project.
In addition to their gains at Hikmah Hill and Souq Al-Jabas, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are applying pressure on the jihadist defenses at the 1070 Housing project; this has paved the way for their comrades to advance elsewhere.
Hezbollah, backed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) launched a new attack on the Khan Touman axis of southern Aleppo tonight, striking Jaysh Al-Fateh’s positions near the key village of Qarassi – firefights are still ongoing.
