Russian Military Asks Putin to Order to Resumption of Airstrikes in Aleppo, Says Militants' Offensive Repelled

Russia’s General Staff has requested President Vladimir Putin to order the resumption of airstrikes in Aleppo due to the operation of militants, the Russian Defense Ministry announced on October 28.

“Due to the fact that there are still deaths among civilians and that the militants have resumed military activities against government forces, we’ve addressed Russia’s commander-in-chief, asking permission for the resumption of airstrikes targeting illegal armed groups in eastern Aleppo,” Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said.

Earlier on October 28, militants “used the moratorium of Russian and Syrian combat flights” and launched an attempt to break the iege of eastern Aleppo.

“The attack was carried out by three groups [of militants]… with support of 20 tanks and 15 APCs. All this was accompanied by heavy fire from rocket launchers and artillery,” he Rudskoy.

According to Rudskoy, the offensive was repelled and the terrorists lost six tanks and five armored personnel carriers.

Meanwhile, sources on the ground, photo and video evidences indicate Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and its allies already captured some areas in western Aleppo: the full 1070 Apartment Project and the Al-Assad area near the al-Assad Military Academy.

      Wait. It is the typical step back to make two steps forward. I am sure the islamist offensive will encounter multiple surprises.

      Wrong. You make a confusion between east and west Aleppo.

    I just don’t understand the stop-go approach to the fighting in Aleppo.
    I say this every time there is a ceasefire. Others have explained to
    me that this is because of public relations or other such reasons. I
    still don’t understand as it makes little sense in terms of the real
    situation and the consequences are always bad.

      Hard to say, really, also bear in mind that the 50 RuAF aircraft in Syria serve ALL of Syria and are probably stretched to the limit. Off-limits in parts of Aleppo does NOT mean non-use of the RuAF by any stretch of imagination. We will know within 24 hours if this attack by Al Nusra etc. is finished.
