Syrian Army repels intense Hayat Tahrir al-Sham attack in Aleppo
The Syrian Arab Army is expanding its range of fire to include the supply lines of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorists in the vicinity of Sarmin, Idlib.
Al Mayadeen correspondent has reported that the Syrian Arab Army is facing one of the most violent attacks by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorists in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
The Syrian Arab Army is expanding its range of fire to include the supply lines of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorists in the vicinity of Sarmin, Idlib, our correspondent added.
The terrorist groups are attempting to regain positions that the Syrian Arab Army had advanced to during its previous defense against an attack by Turkistan Islamic Party gunmen on the Kafr Taal front last week. Our correspondent further stated that "intensive artillery and missile shelling by the Syrian Arab Army is targeting the militants' positions around the villages of Kafr Taal and Kafr Amma."
This attack is taking place concurrently with another attack carried out by terrorists from the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army on the axis of the village of Mahmoudiya in the countryside of Manbij, which is under the control of SDF in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.
Earlier today, violent clashes erupted between Syrian National Army (SNA) fighters and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the western outskirts of Manbij in the countryside of Aleppo.
SNA fighters are making a concerted effort to advance in the direction of the Am Adasa village in western Manbij, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported. This advance is accompanied by a barrage of heavy artillery and rocket fire from both sides.
This latest escalation comes on the heels of Russian airstrikes on Friday, targeting five positions that the SNA fighters had previously occupied in a village in eastern Aleppo. These areas have been under the control of the US-backed SDF, while the Russian military, in coordination with the Syrian government, is actively working to thwart the expansion of the SNA in northern Syria.
The strikes came after days-long clashes between the National Syrian Army and SDF on the Manbij front.
