ALEPPO: While most people’s eyes have been fixed on events in Idlib Governorate, there has been expansive action all over Aleppo with the Syrian Army squelching Erodoghan’s efforts to seize this singularly important northern capital.
Kafr Sagheer and Duwwayr Al-Zaytoon: On the Turk border lies this major supply route to the terrorists. It has now been closed by the SAA. In the area of St. Simeon’s Mountain, the SAAF participated in destroying several vehicles and fortifications. Expect an SAA assault to secure this border route.
Al-Mansoora Village west of the city: Nusra/Alqaeda saw one truck and a pickup with 23mm cannon destroyed. There were 5 rat carcasses. All were foreigners.
Baab Al-Hawaa: The crossing is now in the Syrian Army’s cross hairs. SAA is only 2kms now from establishing its control over this very important and troublesome crossing with Turkey.
Tal Rif’aat: A unique operation netted 12 Al-Jabhat Al-Islamiyya terrorist vultures, and some from Harakat Nooreddeen Zanki with a smattering of Jaysh Al-Muhaahideen. The only Syrians out of the 12 were these:
‘Umar Nabeel Julaylaati
Muhammad Faheem Al-Qaseer
Abu Al-Dhuhoor Village in the northeast rural area: The SAA attacked Nusra/Alqaeda and killed 9 rodents, destroyed a pickup with 23mm cannon and seized several mortars, boxes of ammunition and light weapons.
Thermal Station: A truck loaded with supplies for rats was destroyed. Weapons which survived the explosions were seized for use by our militias.
Umm Khaan Village: 4 rats killed and 6 taken prisoner. All weapons and ammunition were confiscated and delivered to the PDC. The only Syrian in the group was this:
Sulaymaan Mahmoud Al-Hassan Qarqoot
Al-Nayrab Airbase to the west: The SAA has repeatedly repelled attacks on this base. Last night the Nusra group tried again with little success. Early field assessments indicate several killed with many wounded. No other details.
Khanaassir Road: Another highly complex, but perfectly executed operation kept the road open and resulted in 17 dead rodents with many wounded being seen evacuated to field clinics.
Al-Jubool Village: Nusra again loses 3 of its rats in a firefight.

DAMASCUS: Not much action in the Damascus area as rats appear more interested in killing each other than fighting the SAA.
Khaan Al-Shaykh: Southwest of the city. SAA blunted an attack by Nusra. No other details.
Bayt Taymaa: At the border of Al-Shaykh Mountain. SAA snipes at moving rats and kills a reported 2 with others wounded.
