After several hours of clashes with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies, Syrian government forces have established full control of the Rashidin 4 district in western Aleppo. According to pro-government sources, army troops are now working to secure the area and remove IEDs.
Units of the Syrian Army entered the Rashidin 4 area earlier on February 11. However, the district remained contested for some time.
Now, it’s expected that government troops will push further in the southwestern direction in order to fully secure the M5 highway that links Aleppo with Damascus.
