Spokesperson for Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki announced in Twitter that the next phase of Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield will have a goal to ‘besiege’ the ‘regime forces’ (the Syrian government forces) in Aleppo city.
Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki is the so-called ‘moderate opposition group’ (involved in child beheading) backed by the United States and Turkey. The group participates in the ongoing Turkey-led military operation in northern Aleppo under the banner of Operation Euphrates Shield alongside with other pro-Western ‘moderate opposition groups’.
Meanwhile, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) also announced that the group and its allies are readying for a major advance to break the siege of militant-controlled areas of Aleppo city.
The situation in northern Syria is rapidly escalating despite the ‘ceasefire’ in Aleppo city.
