Few minutes ago the Syrian army, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah recaptured the Al-Assad Neighborhood of Aleppo city from the al-Nusra(Al-Qaeda)-led militant alliance ‘Jaish al-Fatah’, according to loyalist media outlets. Pro-militant sources say that the ‘opposition’ faced a stiff pressure in the area.
If reports about the liberation of Al-Assad are confirmed, this will mean that Al-Nusra and its ‘moderate allies’ lost almost all areas that they have gained since the start of offensive to break the Aleppo siege.
Earlier today, the government forces pushed militants from the Minyan Neighborhood.
Clashes are also ongoing in the 1070 Apartment Project.
