Military reinforcement | Over 600 regime soldiers with full materiel arrive in positions nearby Manbij
Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported seeing large military reinforcement of regime forces arriving in villages surrounding areas under the control of the SDF-backed Manbij Military Council Forces in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.
The recently-arrived troops, which comprised over 600 regime soldiers with full materiel, heavy vehicles, tanks and artillery pieces, have not advanced towards frontlines with Turkish forces and their proxy factions.
The regime’s military reinforcement have been deployed in Tel Aswad village, Al-Tayih, Jeb Makhzoum and Khafsah area, to the south and west of Manbij.
On November 30, Russian forces established a new military post in Tel Jijan village in areas controlled by Kurdish and regime forces in eastern Aleppo countryside. Upon arrival in the village, Russian forces raised the Russian flag and deployed field artilleries in the vicinity of the newly established post. It is worth noting that Tel Jejan is adjacent to Abla village in Al-Bab countryside, east of Aleppo, which is under the control of Turkish forces and their proxy factions, where there is a Turkish military base there.
Russian troops sent military reinforcements, including dozens of soldiers, long-range field artilleries and logistical supplies. This is the first time Russian troops have deployed on the frontlines with Turkish forces.
A day earlier, regime forces and armed Iranian-backed Nubl and Zahraa militiamen brought military reinforcements included modern T90 tanks, troop carriers and hundreds of fighters. The military reinforcements were deployed along the frontlines with the “National Army” factions in the northern countryside of Aleppo. It is worth noting that this is the largest reinforcement since the Turkish escalation began on the evening of November 19. On November 21, SOHR sources reported seeing Russian military reinforcement of 25 military vehicles arriving at Sarin base in the southern countryside of Ain Al-Arab (Kobani) and Al-Si’aydiyah base in the west of Ain Al-Arab city, east of Aleppo.
