Syrian Army Heavy Attacks Force Militants to Escape to Eastern Aleppo Districts: Source
The militants stationed in Eastern and Northeastern Aleppo have been forced to withdraw and compress in the central districts amid the Syrian army and its allies' extensive operations in the region, a source from among the ranks of pro-government troops said on Thursday.
"After heavy clashes with the terrorists and inflicting a heavy defeat on them in personnel and equipment, the Syrian army units could advance towards al-Heidariyeh, Bae'idin and Youth Housing Complex near Hanano in Northeastern Aleppo and force the militants to retreat towards the depth of Eastern districts," the source said.
Noting that the army forces could take control of new regions by advancing towards Youth Housing Complex, the source said that a number of buildings in al-Heidariyeh region were also seized back by the army.
"The pro-government troops also moved from Jandoul square towards Bae'idin square and advanced well in Bae'idin district," the source added.
Earlier today, the Syrian army, supported by Hezbollah resistance group, repelled the Jeish al-Fatah terrorist group's massive attack near the Housing Project 1070 in Southwestern Aleppo city.
"After losing the Tal Bazo and Tal Ahd heights in Aleppo, the Jeish al-Fatah militants launched numerous large-scale attacks from Tal Mo'ata against the Aleppo air defense battalion base to take Tal Ahd but were pushed back," a military source said on Thursday.
"Concurrent with the terrorists' offensive, the Syrian fighter jets heavily pounded the terrorists' positions in different parts of Southern Aleppo," he added.
Scores of terrorists were killed and wounded in the clashes and their weapons and ammunition were destroyed, the source said.
Housing Project 1070 is located in the Southern parts of Aleppo highway to the key provinces of Idlib and Lattakia. It is also on the Western side of the aviation and artillery collages near al-Ramouseh. Al-Hamdaniyeh district to the North of the Housing Project is seen as a main gate to the Southwestern neighborhoods of Aleppo city.
Seizure of Project 1070 can directly change the conditions of the battlefield in Southern and Southwestern Aleppo and will leave indirect impacts on the situation of the war in other districts of Aleppo city, FNA reported.
