Wed Aug 17, 2016 13:12:00

The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah continued their southern Aleppo counter-offensive on Wednesday, targeting the remaining buildings under terrorists control at the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Republican Guard and Hezbollah attacked the southern sector of the 1070 Housing Project, resulting in a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) this morning that is still ongoing at the moment.

A military source told Al-Masdar on Wednesday morning that the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are pushing their way to the Hikmah School, which has been under the control of Jaysh Al-Fateh for nearly three weeks.

More importantly, as long as Jaysh Al-Fateh controls the Hikmah School, they will maintain their fire control over the southern buildings in the 1070 Housing Project.

While the Syrian Armed Forces continue their attack on the 1070 Housing Project, the Russian Air Force is carrying out several airstrikes over the Aleppo Artillery Academy.

This specific assault on the Aleppo Artillery Academy is meant to weaken the terrorist defenses, while paving the way for the Syrian Armed Forces to attack its eastern flank.

According to a senior officer in the Syrian Arab Army, reinforcements from the Republican Guard in Tartous have arrived at Al-Safira this morning; they are destined for the Artillery Academy area.
