BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – A Syrian Arab Army (SAA) spy recently filmed from a jihadist stronghold inside the Aleppo Governorate’s southwestern countryside.

According to the 25th Special Mission Forces Division, the Syrian Army spy filmed from the key town of Khan Al-‘Assal, which is located in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo.

In the short video, the Syrian Army films freely from Khan Al-‘Assal while moving through this town located near the provincial capital.

The jihadist rebels captured the town of Khan Al-‘Assal during their 2013 campaign against the Syrian Arab Army in southern Aleppo.

During their capture of Khan Al-‘Assal, the jihadist rebels carried out the execution of several Syrian Arab Army soldiers that surrendered to their forces.

Since then, the jihadists have turned Khan Al-‘Assal into one of their most important strongholds at the outskirts of Aleppo city.

They have launched several strikes on the city of Aleppo from Khan Al-‘Assal, prompting the Syrian military to heavily target the area.

Al Masdar forgot to mention this town witnessed the first use of sarin by these Salafist thugs against the SAA and the population in April 2013.
