Overview of Military Situation in Aleppo City on November 3, 2016: Al-Nusra & Co Launch '2nd Phase' of Their Offensive

Following the announcement of the November 4 ceasefire by Russia, both the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nura, the Syrian al-Qaeda branch)-led alliance Jaish al-Fatah and the Syrian government forces deployed massive reinforcements to Aleppo city.

Last night, Jaish al-Fatah deployed reinforcements (allegedly up to 800 fighters) into the areas near Minyan and al-Assad neighborhoods. At the same time, a large convoy of Liwa al-Quds (a Palestinian pro-government militia) fighters arrived the same area. According to unfonfirmed reports, there are about 2,500 Liwa al-Quds members are currently deployed in western Aleppo.

After these preparations for another ‘humanitarian pause’ in Aleppo city, the battle for Aleppo resumed with a new power on November 3.

Few minutes ago, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and its allies announced the start of 2nd phase of their offensive in Aleppo city and launched massive shellings of the government-controlled areas in the al-Assad and Minyan neighborhoods and the 3000 Aprtment project.

Then, a large suicide vehicle-borne improvised eplosive device belonging to the ‘moderate opposition’ targeted the government forces positions between Minyan and al-Assad areas.

After this, Jaish al-Fatah troops launched attack on the Syrian army and its allies there. A separate offensive was launched in the al-Assad neighborhood.

There are no doubts that the ongoing clashes will likely undermine Russian humanitarian efforts in Aleppo city that had been planned for tomorrow.

Ahrar al-Sham militants (the group is a part of Jaish al-Fatah) shelling the Syrian army positions in the 3000 Apartment Project:
