"Russian bombers hammer southern Aleppo as jihadists mobilize for another offensive"

Aleppo, Syria (4:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force recently increased their presence over Aleppo City after the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched a massive offensive inside the southern districts of the provincial capital.

This latest jihadist offensive attempted to lift the three-week long siege that was imposed on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City by the Syrian Armed Forces; it is still ongoing.

In response to this massive offensive, the Russian Air Force has intensified their airstrikes over Aleppo City, targeting the southern districts and villages, as the jihadist rebels mobilize more men to complete their assault.

On Tuesday night, the Russian Air Force continued their aerial campaign, striking the jihadist controlled districts of Al-Ramouseh, Al-‘Amariyah, and Rashiddeen, while the Syrian Army fired several missiles towards the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.

Russian airstrikes are still ongoing this morning, despite the recent exchange of gunfire near the 1070 Housing Project.


Plus this report yesterday from FARS, for those who may cling to the idea that the SAA siege has been broken; see FARS site for a map:

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian and Syrian warplanes and army artillery units continue to target heavily the only narrow passage that Jeish al-Fatah has opened in al-Ramousiyeh in Southern Aleppo, and did not allow the terrorists to use it as a supply route, battlefield sources said Tuesday.

"The Jeish al-Fatah-established narrow corridor is actually useless. No one can use it. 24-hour artillery and missile shelling and heavy bombardments of the Russian and Syrian fighter jets have left no chance for the terrorist groups to use this passage to send arms, ammunition or medical equipment to militant-held districts in Aleppo," the sources said.
