Joint Jihadi Forces Fail to Retake Control of Kindi Hospital in Northern Aleppo

The Jaish al-Fatah operation room forces, led by Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) units, have failed to retake control of the strategic Kindi Hospital from the Syrian army and Liwa al-Quds (a pro-government Palestinian militia) in northern Aleppo.

According to pro-government sources, today morning, a group of about 600 militants attacked the government forces’ positions near the hospital. However, they were not able to break the defenses of the Syrian army and its allies. Some 23 militants were reportedly killed in the clash.

The control of the Kindi hospital allows the loyalists to secure the recent gains in the Handarat refugee camp and to threat the area of Awijah from the northern flank.

Meanwhile, the pro-government forces have been continuing military operations in the Bustan Al-Basha Neighborhood of Aleppo city. By now, the Syrian army, Hezbolalh and the Ba’ath Brigades have seized about a half of the neighborhood. Clashes are ongoing in the area.

600 attacked only 23 died? Not good math


There is no way there was an attack by 600 fighters, that is a LOT.


This is just one battalion…no big deal.


A battalion? We are talking smelly sandal wearer beheaders, not an army.

if its mostly untrained young men shouting “alla hu akbar” firing guns into the air, or blindly around corners, then 23 dead stopping the ‘assault’ sounds about right.


Wounding people is better than killing them

Excerpt: “The terrorist groups are using civilians as human shields to prevent the Army from targeting them. They heavily depend on US and Turkey to supply them with weapons. But we won’t allow this to happen; they can’t fight the Syrian Army forever”

Russia knows exactly how to clear out Aleppo.

you suggest that russia should use fuel-air-explosives based bombs? i think you are going too far. for those who doesn’t know these types of bombs. it is not the kind of weapon to use in a situation like aleppo.

this is a very different kind of weapon. trench, bunkers, buildings wont help coming out alive. this is a very serious weapon.

Going too far is not the problem, going too slow is. When the enemy is on the defensive, this is clearly the time to push even harder.

The Unites States of Atrocities is already at war with Russia and Russia has been preparing and is ready for it. From the US support for neo Nazi battalions and the ethnic cleansing campaign in Donbass to the destruction of Libya and Syria to the eventual destruction of Europe its all about hegemony over us all.

The United States of Atrocities will enforce a No Fly Zone in Syria, hence all the propaganda to condition us all to the coming war. We are all dead people walking we just dont realise it yet.

The reason Russia has not committed massive troops to Syria is that when NATO enforces the No Fly Zone in Syria then Russia will retrench to its borders where it is incredibly well defended and destroy NATO piece by piece.


Even though appealing to the Americans, a No-Fly zone would be “one bridge too far”. It would come with a host of other problems. I am sure they are aware of it.

Kill the goat-fuckers…


I’d say Bab Nayrab is key now, take that and the southern part of Aleppo resistance will fade into nothing.
