Over 16,000 Terrorists Attacking Syrian Army in Great Epic Operation in Aleppo
The Syrian Army troops and popular forces have repelled over a dozen massive offensives of over 16,000 militants on their positions in Western and Southwestern parts of Aleppo city in the last few days, army sources said on Monday.
"Jeish al-Fatah has launched several rounds of attacks, codenamed the Great Epic Operation, with over 16,000 militants to break the army's siege of their comrades in the Eastern districts of Aleppo city but failed to do so," the sources said.
"The Syrian government forces have fended off the entire attacks of Jeish al-Fatah carried out from three flanks of Ramouseh, Assad Military-Engineering Academy and Artillery Academy Building," the sources added.
"16,000 militants of Jeish al-Fatah have launched a four-phased operation (the Great Epic Operation) to access and capture the Assad Military-Engineering Academy in Southwestern Aleppo in the first and second phases of operation, and then in the third phase they would carry out fresh offensives to capture Aleppo highway, while the last phase of the operation would focus on the removal of the siege on the militants in Aleppo city," they continued.
"Yet, they have failed to attain any of their objectives in the first three days of the operation," they went on to say.
Reports said on Sunday Syrian Army troops and popular forces fended off Jeish al-Fatah's offensives near a military center in Southwestern Aleppo, inflicting tens of casualties on the militants.
Syrian government forces repelled Jeish al-Fatah's assault to capture the Assad Military-Engineering Academy and Bostan al-Zahra neighborhood, targeting militants' suicide vehicles.
Jeish al-Fatah suffered a heavy death toll and retreated from the battlefield without any gain.
Army sources said the terrorists were preparing to attack the army positions in the Northwestern outskirts of Aleppo near the Castillo road.
