Aleppo

Yesterday’s liberation of the Air Defense Battalion in southwest Aleppo paved the way toward another important gain today: the Tal Baazu/Tal Mahabba hills just northwest of the Air Defense Battalion. This critical move will allow the SAA, Hezbollah and allies not only to control the supply route to the remaining 1070 Apartment Project buildings still under terrorist control, but also most likely to spur an advance toward Al-Burayj and Al-Raasheendin-5th sector. The terrorists have managed to hold the ground in Al-Hikma School and 10% of the 1070 complex due to the very strong defense and higher ground of the former where frontal assaults and air attacks were able to weaken their position. However, with easy access to reinforcements, the terrorists were able to regain footing and hold the ground.

This situation is about to change if the flanking move toward Al- Burayj is executed.  A very important battle looms ahead to finally secure the southwestern gate to Aleppo.

Northern Hama

After all night long artillery shelling and air attacks, the Tiger Forces are in position to storm the cities of Sooraan and Teebat Al-Imaam.  Our latest information points to a possible route through M5 with flanking attacks on both cities. More details will appear during the day and tonight.

West Ghouta

Recent gains by the SAA 4th Division in the Khaan Al-Shaykh pocket provide the opportunity to finally cut off this city from Zaakiya creating in the process two pockets and the conditions for reconciliation/surrender along the lines of the battle in the Mu’adhdhamiyya and Daarayyaa pockets. The action will most likely be concentrated on the Zaakiya-Khaan Al-Shaykh Road and Al-Dayr-Khabiyyah-Khaan Al-Shaykh Road. With the recent gains on farms southeast of Khaan Al-Shaykh, the SAA is getting very close to the intersection to establish fire control over it and effectively cut it off.

East Ghouta

After about one week of negotiations and rest, the combat resumed at Al-Rayhaan.  This narrow gap is no more than 1 km in width, but, is vital for the terrorists inside Tal Kurdi and Doumaa. The terrorists are concentrating all their reserves and forces on this gap. The possibility of losing it is simply too catastrophic for them to consider. In the meantime, the Republican Guards continue to deplete the energies of the terrorist forces in their attempt to defend the indefensible.  Soon, the Jaysh Al-Islam terrorist group will finally have to come to grips with a total surrender.
