The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out on November 22 a wide-scale rocket strike on militants’ positions in the vicinity of Aleppo in response to the recent attacks on the city.
According to the North Press Agency (NPA), more than 15 heavy rockets were launched at militants’ positions in city’s western suburbs. The agency released a video showing a part of the wide-scale rocket strike.
A source in the SAA told NPA that the strike destroyed two ammo depots, where improvised rocket-assisted munitions (IRAMs), usually used in attacks on Aleppo, were stored.

“Instructions came from the capital Damascus to carry out a violent response on the armed factions’ positions,” the agency quoted the source as saying.
A day earlier, radical militants shelled heavily-populated districts in Aleppo’s city center killing seven civilians, including a child, and injuring 30 others. The militants also attempted to advance in the city’s western suburbs.
The Turkish military established three observation posts in Aleppo’s northern and western suburbs, last year. However, it is doing nothing to stop militants’ attacks on the city.
