Overview of Military Situation in Aleppo City on November 29, 2016

Syrian government forces are advacning against Jaish al-Fatah militant coalition in the neighborhoods of Turbet Lala and Tareeq al-Bab in the eastern part of Aleppo city.

Clashes between the Syrian army and Jaish al-Fatah militants are ongoing in the area of al-Zahraa in western Aleppo.

The Syrian TV broadcasts from eastern Aleppo:

A large build up of pro-government forces have been also reported in southern Aleppo. Hezbollah and Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba have allegedly deployed a significant number of manpower to the area. This move has once against fueled massive speculations in pro-government media outlets that the Syrian army and its allies are going to advance in the direction of Khan Tuman. However, this move can be harldy expected in the near future.

Now, the Syrian military’s main goal is to develop momentum in eastern Aleppo in order to push militants to surrender and to set a full-control over Aleppo city.

There are two main direction of government forces advance in the area:

  1. To advance further into the eastern part of Aleppo from the northern direction;
  2. To make a splitting attack in the direction of Aleppo Citadel from the area of Aleppo International Airport.

The splitting attack looks as a preferred option because a common frontal attack could end without results because of a complicated urban environment in the area.

Syrian government forces have liberated the territory of east Aleppo where 90,000 residents live by noon on November 29, the Russian Defense Ministry announced Tuesday.

The ministry added that 507 terrorists have left Aleppo and laid down arms. 484 fighters have been immediately granted amnesty.

    split them is a better option but will extend the fronts. but 2 small is better than 1 big pocket.

      depending on intel on how enemy forces on the terrain are deployed, you could make a decisive winning move by splitting. Especially if there is some political objective involved.

    i wonder if such liberal amnesty granting won’t become an issue later between the people and the syrian government. let’s remember, there are terrorists inside that were bombing government held areas for years and causing tremendous suffering just due to their fanatism.
    so, government better be prudent whom they grant amnesty and who really deserves a punishment.
