Syrian Army & Hezbollah launch counter-offensive in south Aleppo (VIDEO)

Syrian Army & Hezbollah launch counter-offensive in south Aleppo (VIDEO)

The Syrian Army along with Hezbollah troops launched a counter-offensive in the south of Aleppo on Thursday in an attempt to recapture districts under the control of the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) terrorist group.

Syrian forces could be seen launching shells at the city’s Al-Ramouseh district as they attacked a cement factory, as well as an apartment block being used by the terrorists. 

The counter-offensive on the ground was carried out in tandem with Russian airstrikes, which are also targeting the Jaysh Al-Fateh group.

Russian and Syrian authorities set up a number of special humanitarian corridors in the city on July 30 in an effort to move civilians farther away from intensified fighting in besieged areas of Aleppo.

The Russian Defense Ministry says that some 7,000 heavily armed terrorists have taken positions southeast of Aleppo, equipped with tanks, armored personnel carriers, artillery and weapons-mounted trucks.
