After heavy artillery shelling on jihadist-held districts in southeastern part of Aleppo city that continued all night, the Syrian Arab Army's elite Tiger Forces division renewed their offensive on remaining Aleppo pocket.

The attack proved successful as government troops imposed full control over Al-Asilah district in northeastern part of the pocket after launching a swift attack on this axis.

Having cleared the aforementioned neighbourhood of jihadists, the Tiger Forces continued their operation launching an assault on Al-Ma'adi district. Preliminary reports suggest that SAA troops have already seized a part of it and keep advancing further. Latest map from of the situation on this front can be seen below:
