Since August 1, the Russian Aerospace Forces have conducted over 120 air strikes on militant targets at the Syrian city of Aleppo. Most air strikes were reported in southern Aleppo (including the town of Khan Touman – the militants’ rear) where the Syrian army secured the 1070 Apartment Project and the strategic Bazo hill and advanced in Tal Muta and Ohud that had been captured by the joint militant forces.
Intense clashes are ongoing in Handarat Camp north of the Castello Highway. Last night, pro-government forces – the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces and Palestinian militias – launched an operation in the area, seizing positions at the eastern part of the camp. Russian warplanes made a series of air strikes in support of the operation. This move became possible due to the stabilization of southern front against the militant groups.
