The Syrian army troops and Liwa al-Quds fighters have made fresh gains against the Jaish al-Fatah militant alliance in the northern part of Aleppo city. After taking control of the strategic Humrah Hill today morning, the pro-government forces attacked Jaish al-Fatah units in the Shuqayf Army Base (Rahbat Shuqayf ) and the Shuqayf Industrial Area and liberated them after an intense firefight with the US-backed forces.
The successfull actions of the army and its allies in the area were based on the ground of failures of Jaish al-Fatah storming groups to retake the Kindi hospital from the pro-government forces. The Syrian army and Liwa al-Quds, supported by Russian warplanes, have been able to repell all attacks of the joint militant forces and successfully counter-attacked, seizing the area of Bakarah (the Bakarah Quarries are located just south of the Handarat refugee camp).
The Syrian army and its allies, supported by the Russian-Syrian air power, have been continuing military operations against illiegal armed groups in Aleppo city.
