Local reports indicate that the Jaish al-Fatah operation room has concentrated significant forces in the central parts of 1070 Apartment Project, the Ramouseh Artillery Base and the Air Force College. If the jihadists want to open a real supply line to eastern Aleppo they need to winden the exisiting corridor, capturing the whole 1070 Apartment Project and the 3000 Apartment Project.
IMORTANT: Despite all PR claims, the both sides have difficulties with providing supplies to the besieged areas because the opened corridors through the Castello Highway and the Alramousa road don’t allow free passage of aid convoys.
