The pincers have closed on Aleppo City. We are now in negotiation mode. With ISIS moving steadily across the north and killing Nusra rats, the latter are finding reasons today to talk to the government. This new attitude is also being encouraged by Saudi Arabia which has apparently, in its own ape-like way, seen the path to rational behavior. But, ISIS remains a threat in Aleppo for a number of reasons. The SAA is reportedly beefing up defenses in the city while slowing ISIS advances with air bombardment.
City: At the Al-Assad Military Academy, the SAA killed 12 Nusra terrorists. The SAA also destroyed 3 pickups with 23mm cannons and 3 armor plated trucks courtesy of Erodoghan’s sociopathic regime.This area is notorious because of a massacre that took place when the first Muslim Brotherhood revolt was in full swing during Haafezh Al-Assad’s presidency. Alawi officer cadets were lured into an area of the Academy and murdered. The government got its revenge.
Daaheq: Nusra pickup truck with 23mm cannon was destroyed by NDF. All 3 passengers were killed.
