    Why did they withdrew from Sheikh Saeed?

    • Lord Humongous

      I read they hadn’t had time to fortify before a substantial counterattack.

  • Blaubeere

    I am wondering what exactly makes Sheikh Saeed so precious for the terrorists that they defend it by all means, whereas the SAA captures northern parts of East Aleppo relatively quickly. Or are there simply better Syrian troops in the north than in the south?
