TEHRAN (FNA)- Emboldened by the Syrian Army's rapid advances in the region, people in the eastern districts of Aleppo have intensified protests against terrorist groups there.
The resistance groups are carrying out assassination attempts against the terrorists in all districts of Eastern Aleppo.
Meantime, people have hoisted Syria's flags in Eastern Aleppo and are ready to welcome the country's army soldiers.
The residents of al-Qaterji district in Aleppo city staged protest rallies against the terrorists and asked them to leave their houses and surrender the district to the Syrian army.
Last Wednesday, a senior Syrian commander and legislator underlined good cooperation between the people in Eastern Aleppo and the army, and said a popular uprising has ignited against the terrorists in the region.
"The residents of Eastern Aleppo have staged rallies against the terrorists while holding up President Bashar al-Assad's pictures," Mohannad al-Haaj said.
Noting that people in Eastern Aleppo are cooperating with the army forces against the terrorists, he said that they have mounted President Assad's image on the highest point of Abu Bakr al-Saddiq mosque in al-Kalasa district in a show of support for the army.
"Therefore, the popular move and uprising inside the city shows that people support the government and are trying to help 250,000 civilians, who have been captivated by the terrorists and 7,000 of them are being used as human shields by the militants, to escape the city," al-Haaj said.
[Pundita note: I would take that 250K figure with a large grain of salt; the true number still trapped in E. Aleppo is closer to 25K. Which is exactly why the bad guys are now finding it hard to stand up to the protests against them in E. Aleppo. They're losing more and more human shields with every hour that passes. And since the civilians there have realized the army is now doing pinpoint precise bombing, they are further emboldened. As to how the army is managing that feat with their el-cheapo unguided bombs: through the magic of drone technology.]
After repeated defeats and nearly two months of insistence on remaining in the city and rejecting the army's several chances to leave Eastern Aleppo with their weapons, terrorists are now facing the realities of war as their comrades' massive attacks on the city to break the army's several-month-long siege have all ended up in fiasco.
Earlier on Monday, the Syrian army and popular forces strengthened their military positions in newly captured districts in the Eastern part of the city of Aleppo.
The army units and their allies fortified their military positions in Haydariyah and al-Sakhor districts in Eastern Aleppo city.
Meantime, the Hezbollah resistance forces are chasing the terrorists who are trying to flee the region.
On Sunday, the terrorists sustained heavy defeat in different fronts in Northeastern districts of Aleppo and they had to withdraw from Haydariyah, Bustan al-Pasha, al-Hallak, Ayn al-Tal and al-Sheikh Khezr regions.
Meantime, Syria's media reported that the resistance forces managed to take full control of al-Sakhor region after they had seized back over 95 percent of the region on Sunday.
On Sunday, it was reported that the countdown has started for the collapse of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in entire Eastern Aleppo as they are losing ground to invading army and popular forces in several neighborhoods and were forced to evacuate Bustan al-Pasha district Northeast of the city after brief clashes in the evening.
The Syrian army and Hezbollah forces, who captured Hanano quarter on Saturday and Jabal Badrou, al-Ard al-Hamra, al-Saroukh districts on Sunday, continued their military operations and managed to push back a large number of terrorists from more vital bastions in the Eastern parts of the city.
According to some Arab media outlets, militants of Fateh Halab (Aleppo Conqueror) factions have abandoned Bustan Al-Pasha as well as Haydariyah and Baeedin districts after huge defeats of their comrades on Sunday.
