According to a field source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Armored Division managed to crack the jihadist lines at the Rashiddeen 5 sector, resulting in the capture of this site near the strategic Rashideen 4 sector.

The source said the Syrian Army is now pushing their way north towards the Rashiddeen 4 sector, which is an important site in the southwestern part of Aleppo.

Prior to this advance, the Syrian Arab Army was deadlocked in a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels at several axes in Aleppo.

However, following the heavy bombing campaign by the Russian Air Force, the Syrian Arab Army has been able to crack the jihadist lines for the first time in years.

Excellent! Go SAA and RuAF.
The biggest mistake that the foreign backed jihadis did was to try and attack the Russian airbase. That incentivized the Russians to protect that base and they are now going all in with the SAA to retrieve Idlib Province and especially Aleppo City and the roads leading to the Med. As for Turkish protests, they need to go and get kebabs and sit this one out as I doubt anyone trusts the Turks at this stage.
Here’s wishing the Syrian Government and the Russians all the best….
