Syrian regime attempts to encircle major towns in north Aleppo amid ongoing attacks by rebels and jihadis in western countryside
Russian jets executed more raids targeting places in the northern, western and north-western countryside of Aleppo, along with ongoing battles in Kafr Halab and Meznaz, west of Aleppo, following attacks by rebels and jihadis on regime positions there.
On the other hand, regime forces that are stationed in Aajil and Owayjil villages, north-west Aleppo, continue their attacks seeking to reach Jabal Al-Sheikh Oqail area, so that can encircle the major towns and villages of the northern countryside of Aleppo.
Observatory activists documented the killing of 34 regime soldiers and loyalists, including eight non-Syrian members, and 29 jihadis in today’s bombardment, detonations and battles.
