Iraq's Al-Nujaba resistance fighters stormed Jeish al-Fatah's strongholds in the Southwestern part of Aleppo city and took back one more height after hours of non-stop battle.

Al-Nujaba fighters, backed by Iran's IRGC military advisors, pushed Jeish al-Fatah fighters back from al-Syriatel height near Um al-Qara'a, inflicting a heavy death toll on the militants.

Local sources announced that the Syrian pro-government forces are fortifying their positions in al-Syriatel to strengthen their control over Um al-Qara'a height.

The sources further added that at least 95 members of Jeish al-Fatah, including 10 senior commanders, have been killed in clashes in Aleppo in the last four days.

Reports said earlier today that he official in charge of the Operations Room of Fatah al-Sham (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist groups previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in Aleppo was killed in clashes with the Syrian government forces.

Abu Feisal al-Halabi, one of the notorious masterminds in Fatah al-Sham's operation room for leading terrorist activities and attacks on government forces' positions in the province, was gunned down by the Syrian army men, FNA reported.
