Syrian Army Liberates Three More Regions in Southern Aleppo
Three more key districts in the Southern parts of Aleppo city fell into the hands of the Syrian army and popular forces after they captured Housing Project 1070 and several hills in the Southwestern parts of the flashpoint city.
"The Southern districts of al-Rashedeen 4 and 5 as well as al-Hikmah School have fallen militarily into the hands of the army soldiers," the sources said.
"Liberation of Housing Project 1070 and the hills of Tal al-Rakham and Tal Mo'ata enabled the Syrian army to expand its security ring around Aleppo Military Academy Buildings, while terrorists' positions in al-Rashedeen 4 and 5 as well as al-Hikmah School are under the direct fire of the army," they added.
The tall buildings of Housing Project 1070 were used as watchposts by the militants to monitor army movements and arrange their attacks on adjacent neighborhoods, including their recent attack on Aleppo Military Academy Buildings.
Military sources said earlier today that Syrian Army soldiers and their popular allies fortified their positions in the newly-captured Housing Project 1070 and blocked Jeish al-Fatah terrorists' supply line from this district to the Southern neighborhoods of Aleppo.
"The pro-government forces continued to advance in the nearby areas of Housing Project 1070 and cut off terrorists' supply road to al-Rashedeen and al-Hikmah school," the sources said.
"A large number of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists were killed or wounded and their military vehicles were destroyed in army's advances," they added.
"The Syrian fighter jets, for their part, carried out several combat sorties over Jeish al-Fatah's positions in Housing Project 1070, the towns of Khan Touman and al-Zerbeh," the sources went on to say.
Reports said also earlier today that Syrian Army soldiers and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters inflicted major casualties on Jeish al-Fatah terrorist coalition and drove them out of the entire area of Housing Project 1070.
"The pro-government forces that started a joint military operation to stretch the security ring in the Western districts of Aleppo city beat back Jeish al-Fatah terrorists from the remaining building blocks of Housing Project 1070," the sources said.
"A large number of Takfiri terrorists were killed and wounded in the pro-government forces' operation," they added.
"With the liberation of Housing Project 1070 and Tal (Hill) Mo'ata, one of the main movement and supply roads of the terrorists used by them to send aid cargos to their comrades in Southeastern Aleppo was cut off," the sources went on to say, FNA reported.
