By Syrian Army Advancement, Aleppo Comes Under Emergency
Jeish al-Fatah has ordered all its militants in Aleppo to stay on the alert after reports indicated that the Syrian army is preparing to launch a massive assault in the region, media sources disclosed Monday.
The Arabic language al-Mayadeen reported that Jeish al-Fatah has warned its members to stay on the alert as pro-government troops are preparing to start a fresh phase of operation, urging them to intensify security measures.
Jeish al-Fatah has also called on its fighters to carry out preemptive operation in Aleppo.
A field commander said earlier today that repeated defeats of the Jeish al-Fatah coalition of terrorist groups to push the army back in Southwestern Aleppo to help their comrades lift the siege in the Eastern parts of the city proved the power and unbeatable resolve of the pro-government troops.
"Terrorists' large-scale offensives, including Abu Omar Saraqib and the Great Epic Operation, have different names but the same result.
Terrorists are not able to lift the army's siege on the militant-held districts of Aleppo," the commander underlined.
"After repelling terrorists' continued attacks on government forces' positions in Western Aleppo and extension of the army's security ring in the Western and Southwestern parts of the city, the army soldiers are now ready to storm militants' centers in Eastern Aleppo," he went on to say.
"Expansion of the Syrian army's rule in the depth of the Western districts of Aleppo has ruined any chance for the terrorists to open their way into the Eastern parts of the city to lift the siege of their comrades," the commander said.
He further added that the Syrian army operation in Aleppo is aimed at meeting two objectives:
first, blocking the terrorists' movement through their supply roads to al-Rashedeen neighborhood.
This neighborhood is the main supply line of the terrorists from the Southern flank to the Southwest and from there to the regions of al-Mansoureh, al-Bahouth al-Elmiyeh and Khan al-Asal that are the most important strongholds of the terrorists in Western Aleppo.
The second objective of the Syrian army operation is to complete control over all roads in the Southwestern parts of Aleppo and restore security to most quarters in the Western part of the city and immune them against the terrorists' mortar attacks.
