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.
