Syrian Army Responds With Fire To Militant Rocket Attack On Aleppo City (Video)

On October 24, unknown militants shelled the districts of al-Shahba, al-Zahra, Halab al-Jadidah and Adhamiyah in the northern and western parts of the city of Aleppo with rockets and mortars, according to several Syrian pro-government news outlets. Ten civilians were reportedly injured in the attack.

In response to this clear violation of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement, the SAA artillery and rocket launchers shelled several positions of the militants in the opposition-held areas of Kafr Hamrah, Dahrat Abd Rabh, al-Salat, al-Zahra and al-Leramoun in the vicinity of Aleppo. A source in the SAA told SouthFront that the respond was “fierce.”

Last week, local sources reported that Turkish-backed groups began withdrawing their heavy weapons from their positions around Aleppo. This may mean that the attack was carried out by a radical group, such as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

This kind of attacks poses a serious threat to the deconfliction agreement on Idlib, which considers the opposition-held areas around Aleppo a part of a demilitarized zone. Earlier, the Turkish defense minister said that a large number of heavy weapons and militants were cleared from the zone. However, these claims are yet to be verified.

    Turkey was the safe “third area,” logistics, training, and operations center for HTS (and all its other previous rebrandings) for over seven years (and still is) . Turkey is in AQ/HTS up to its eyebrows. So how can HTS /not/ be labled “Turkish supported?”

    • There are reports that HTS is even recalled as the Turkish intelligence, do you think it is a coincidence that HTS is all up Turkey’s border and that Turkish soldiers can drive through it without an problem? it has been like that for a long time.

    The SAA spilled pools of blood just to keep the city of Aleppo alive and functioning. Any group that threatens Aleppo will be punished severely.
