Syria: Gov’t Forces Readying to Launch Fresh Operation in Southern Aleppo
A large number of army soldiers and their popular allies are waiting to receive the operation code from the Aleppo Operations Command Center to storm Jeish al-Fatah’s defense lines in the Southern and Southwestern parts of the city, military sources confirmed on Tuesday afternoon.
“Fresh soldiers and popular forces that arrived in Aleppo in the last few days are ready to hit Jeish al-Fatah’s strongholds in military academy buildings and al-Ramousiyeh district,” the sources said.
“The Syrian and Russian fighter jets and army’s artillery units have in the last two days targeted heavily Jeish al-Fatah’s positions in Southwestern part of Aleppo city, paving the way for the rapid advances of the ground force in the battlefields,” the sources added.
“In the meantime, army has formed a strong wall of military forces in the Southern part of Aleppo in front of Sheikh Saeed district. No terrorist group can prevail over government forces’ positions in this district,” the sources went on to say.
Reports said earlier today that Russian fighter jets launched massive airstrikes on Jeish al-Fatah’s strongholds in the military academy buildings and their narrow corridor in al-Ramousiyeh, inflicting dozens of casualties on the terrorists.
“Heavy air raids, launched since last nights, have ruined the main parts of buildings in the military academy. Parts of the building have also burned down under the strikes,” field sources told FNA.
“In the meantime, Russian fighter jets intensified attacks on Jeish al-Fatah’s gatherings in al-Ramousiyeh leaving the narrow militant-established supply corridor to Aleppo city closed,” the sources said.
“In addition to artillery shelling of the Syrian army and Russian air attack on Jeish al-Fatah’s position in al-Ramousiyeh, resistance forces did not allow any terrorist movement in the neighborhood,” the sources added.
“Jeish al-Fatah is not able to fortify its positions in al-Ramousiyeh and military academy buildings due to heavy fire of the army and air attacks,” they further told FNA.
