The Syrian Army and their allies are operating to cut off the supply routes of the terrorist around Aleppo.
On Thursday, a Syrian army source said that as the military continues operations near the city after cutting the insurgents’ most important supply route from the Turkish border, all terrorists in Aleppo will soon be completely encircled and crushed.
The Syrian military source was speaking to a western news agency after the army and pro-government forces heavily helped by Russian air strikes broke through rebel lines on Wednesday to Nubul and al-Zahraa and those Shi’ite towns were loyal to Damascus lying northwest of Aleppo.
“If the army completes its operation in the northwest direction from Zirba- a location southwest of Aleppo, and in the southwest direction from Nubul and al-Zahraa, all the supply routes will be cut. And this is soon,” the source told to the western media.
However, according to several sources the real battle for northern Aleppo has just started, as terrorists attempt to halt the government forces from advancing along the Hariteen Highway that stretches to the Turkish city of Gaziantep.
While the news in northern Aleppo seems promising for the Syrian Armed Forces, the Russian Aerospace Forces and their allies, they are still involved in a violent battle with terrorists of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah at both Bayyanoun and Rityan.
