Syrian Army soldiers repelled a large-scale attack of Jeish al-Fatah collation of terrorist groups to prevail over government positions in the Western districts of Aleppo city, inflicting major losses on the militants.
The terrorists targeted residential areas in the district of Jam’iyat al-Zahra with tens of Grad missiles and mortar shells at first and then landed their assault on army positions near Rasoul A’azam Grand Mosque and the district of al-Lairamoun.
The army men engaged in fierce clashes with the militants and repelled their attack, forcing them to pull forces back from the battlefield.
The army men also inflicted heavy losses on the militants.
A military source told Sputnik on Tuesday that after liberating Aleppo city’s Eastern neighborhoods the army would start clearing from terrorists settlements to the West of the city.
“In the coming days the Syrian army will be liberating villages to the West of the city (Aleppo),” the source disclosed.
Over 90 percent of the Jam’iyat al-Zahra district is under the Syrian army control and the military operation there is aimed at purging terrorists from a small portion still under their control.
The Syrian Army’s victories in Eastern Aleppo finally forced militant groups to leave the war-torn city as Jeish Al-Fatah terrorists are now encircled in a very small area left with the only two options of surrender or die, as the terrorist groups in Eastern Aleppo asked the Syrian Army to allow them leave the city for Idlib.
The fighting in Eastern Aleppo has also stopped and the Syrian government has regained control over the territory after the withdrawal of militants from the city was agreed.
The Syrian army units started special operations in Aleppo after several humanitarian pauses declared by Damascus and Moscow to give a chance to the civilian population as well as the militants to leave the Eastern parts of the city through 8 corridors.
District after district have fallen into the hands of the Syrian army soldiers and their allies in the city of Aleppo, as the pro-government troops have recaptured most of the blocks and districts in the Northern and Southern parts of Eastern Aleppo.
Also, tens of thousands of civilians, including hundreds of children and newborn babies, have also left the Eastern part of the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo in recent days, while thousands of militants laid down their arms and left Eastern Aleppo through the special corridor.
Over the recent months, Aleppo has been a battlefield between government forces and numerous terrorist groups, however, in recent weeks, the Syrian Army has made significant gains in Eastern Aleppo and is close to liberating it from the militants.
A sum of 16,000 terrorists raided the Western and Southwestern districts of Aleppo late October to rescue their entrapped comrades in the Eastern parts of the city.
But, the so-called ‘Great Epic Operation’ and ‘Abu Omar Saraqib’ ended in major defeats even in absence of airstrikes, the militants admitted, blaming their top commander for their humiliating defeat in Western and Southwestern Aleppo.
“Jeish al-Fatah’s operations failed to meet the coalition’s military objective of lifting the siege on our comrades trapped in the Eastern part of the city,” militants told their affiliated media outlets and on their social media pages late October”.
The militants also complained in their social media posts that Abdullah Muhammad al-Muhaysini, senior al Qaeda-linked cleric and religious leader of Jeish al-Fatah coalition of militant groups, is to blame for the “humiliating result” of the operation in Aleppo.
The terrorists slammed al-Muhaysini for his “totally wrong strategy” for removing the army siege on their fellow militants under siege in Eastern Aleppo, saying that his “naive plans sent hundreds of fighters to meet their death.”
“It seems that al-Muhaysini has sent the foreign members of the militant groups to the Aleppo battlefield to get rid of them,” several militants wrote in their posts.
The Jeish al-Fatah coalition is on the verge of collapse after its repeated failures in the first and second waves of the Great Epic Operation in Western and Southwestern Aleppo city.
“The recent victories of the Syrian army and popular forces in Southwestern Aleppo and liberation of Housing Project 1070, al-Hikmah School, army’s advances in the neighborhood of al-Rashedeen, the Western flank, government forces’ successful cleansing operation in Zahiyeh al-Assad and Menyan districts and the continued defeats of the terrorists in Jam’iyat al-Zahra district have caused the terrorists to grow hopeless, paralyzed and depressed,” the sources said.
“The terrorists are now accusing each other of betrayal. The accusations find their roots in the escape of several terrorist commanders from battlefields in Western Aleppo and their shooting at each other,” the source added.
According to reports, the terrorist groups lost thousands of their fighters, including tens of top military commanders and a large number of non-Syrian militants, in ‘Great Epic Operation’ and ‘Abu Omar Saraqib’ on Syrian Army positions in Western and Southwestern Aleppo.
