Syria Crushing US-Supported Terrorists in Aleppo

Syria Crushing US-Supported Terrorists in Aleppo

by Stephen Lendman

Perhaps by yearend, Aleppo will be entirely freed from the scourge of US-backed terrorists - 60% of eastern parts of the city so far liberated, according to various reports.

On December 4, AMN News reported “major advance(s)…jihadists struggl(ing) to hold ground.”

Led by elite Tiger Forces and Republican Guard troops “the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Tariq Al-Bab, Karm al-Tarrab, and Al-Jazmati quarters of east Aleppo, striking the jihadist defenses from several axes, while the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) provided aerial support.”

“In a matter of hours, the Syrian Arab Army managed to break-through Fatah Halab'a defenses at Tariq Al-Bab, resulting in a major advance across this important quarter.”

Other neighborhoods are liberated daily, leaving US-backed terrorists “in a poor position around the remaining districts.”

US-supported Jaish al-Fatah (so-called religious leader) terrorist Abdullah Muhammad al-Muhaysini acknowledged “crushing defeat(s)” at the hands of Syrian and allied forces in eastern Aleppo - calling it fruitless to mount new offensives.

In the past two days, hundreds of families returned to liberated parts of the city after Syria’s General Command of the Army and Armed Forces urged them go home to areas where security and stability were restored.

Rebuilding and rehabilitation efforts began, including restoration of essential services. Syria’s Defense Minister General Fahd Jassem al-Freij visited several liberated neighborhoods.

Briefed by field commanders, plans for upcoming operations were discussed, continued efforts to liberate remaining parts of eastern Aleppo in US-backed terrorists’ hands.

Various jihadist elements vow to keep fighting, one commander saying “we will not surrender. The military commanders in Aleppo said (they won’t) leave the city.”

They’ll either go voluntarily, surrender or die - their choice. According to a Syrian military source, “Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Armed Forces Units on Saturday continued to launch wide-scale military operations against dens and positions of the mercenary-terrorist organizations in different areas across the country, inflicting heavy losses upon them in the arms and personnel.”

With his tenure weeks from ending, Obama’s imperial project in Syria appears doomed. Russia’s intervention last year made the difference, heading toward handing Washington a stunning defeat.
