Meanwhile, south of Aleppo City, the Syrian army has succesfully counter-attacked along the road between Hakima School and the 1070 Apartment Project. The counter-attack was supported by massive air raids of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Air Force.
The ANNA News video (above) depicts Syrian army units inside the 1070 Apartment Project that are saving civilians and preparing to develop the counter-attack in order to reverse the gains of the joint jihadi forces. The ANNA News journalist said that up to 5000 militants oppose the Syrian army in the area.
