Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched a large-scale offensive inside Aleppo City on Sunday morning that targeted the southern and northern districts under the government’s control.

The purpose of this massive offensive was to lift the two-week long siege on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City; however, this has not been achieved.

On Monday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces struck back against the terrorist rebels, firing a barrage of artillery shells and missiles towards their positions, while also attempting to recover the sites they lost.

According to the Aleppo-based journalist, Kinana Alloush, the Syrian Armed Forces cutoff the road between the Hikmah School and 1070 Housing Project, leaving Jaysh Al-Fateh besieged at the aforementioned site.

Meanwhile, at the Sabiqiyah District, the Syrian Armed Forces repelled a major attack by the rebels, killing a large number of enemy combatants before securing all flanks.

The Russian Air Force is working overtime today, carrying out a significant number of airstrikes on the southern districts of Aleppo city.

A senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar News on Monday morning that the Russians have destroyed at least 4 armored vehicles near the Hikmah School in the last 2 hours.

Clashes are still ongoing between the opposing parties in southern Aleppo; however, the Syrian Armed Forces have taken the initiative to recapture the territory they lost.
