Aleppo: Yesterday, August 23rd, was a very bad day for the terrorists in western Aleppo where,arguably, they suffered one of their toughest defeats in the 5-week battle, both strategically and from the standpoint of fatalities.
Strategically: the terrorists failed to regain lost ground in the Artillery Academy and Air Force Technology College and in the very important hill of ‘Umm al-Qar’. This hill provides fire control over the Khaan Toomaan-Al-Raamoosa Road so vital for the terrorists to get in and out of Aleppo. For the past 4 days, the Syrian Government forces and allies have managed to hold the ground after consecutive waves of attacks. The combined efforts of Special Forces (Tiger Force and Hezbollah) and outstanding communication with SAAF and RuAF for CAS has proven to be devastating for the terrorists.
Terrorists’ losses: the day was ending when the Syrian forces counted the terrorists’ losses at 200+ KIA with many more wounded, 3 tanks and 1 BMP captured, literally left by the terrorists who desperately fled the onslaught. 2 BMPs and 1 VBIED were destroyed.

Damascus: The battle for Daarayyaa is rapidly evolving. The besieged terrorists remaining inside this very large city are losing ground at a fast pace. The latest advance by the 4th Mechanized Armored Division aims to cut the terrorists in two which would speed up their defeat. The Syrian Government forces have finally reached the railroad and are right now fighting their way to link up with the army coming from the northern part of the city.
