Late on November 21, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) repelled a large militants attack on the western suburbs of Aleppo city.
Pro-government activists reported that dozens of militants attacked army positions in the districts of al-Rashdeen and al-Buhuth al-Almiyah. Syrian soldiers managed to repel the attack following several hours of heavy clashes.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), two militias and three Syrian soldiers were killed in the clashes west of Aleppo.
A few hours prior to the attack, the militants fired dozens of mortar rounds on Aleppo’s city center. As a result, seven civilians, including a woman and a child, were killed and at least 30 others were injured.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks on Aleppo, yet. However, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) are known to be stationed in the city’s northern and western suburbs.
