Units of the Syrian Army liberated the areas of Tal Kalariyah and Kalariyah, and advanced on positions of militants in the Rashidin 4 district of Aleppo city. The Rashidin 4 is among the few suburbs of the city, which remained in the hands of militants during the last years.



  • klove and light

    dead meat…no evacuation Agreements no ceasefires….

    welcome to the jungle motherfuckers

    • Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

      Yep. Kill them all. Complete extermination of jihadis.

    • good american

      So? What do you say about Putin now? He probably has something to do with this, yes?

  • igybundy

    lol all that preparation wotn do any good if you get attacked from the rear…

    • Ricky Miller

      The way I see the map the SAA rear in this case is protected by both a Hezbollah unit and some topography. The people of the city of Aleppo need safety. This move signals that the Syrian government fully intends to bring that to them.

  • Joe Doe

    Very poor move by SAA. This only will create more casualties to SAA. The better approach will be go more West-North, Urma al Kubra, Basratun, Qabtan al jabal, alway till the SAA close the packet, than go Est from West. This move will collapse militants defence lines alway to Aleppo and SAA wil have a lot less caulties

    • Assad must stay

      Why it will create more casualties?

    • Lupus

      Did u fill out the application form to be general in the SAA?

      • FlorianGeyer

        He did, and was advised to improve his abilities and to re-apply in 50 years. :)

    • @Inc2Get

      No, this is the most effective approach as militants have reinforced west-north. Now, they will retake the entire highway linking Aleppo city. After that, a cease fire will be announced and fighting will stop for a while.

      • Squeeth

        Liberating the M5 is good enough.

        • Kananda

          Maybe also the gaziantep road (Anadan, harityan, …)

      • ButtonPlay

        quite possible the area around aleppo is heavily suburbanized its not like you are steamrolling over a few tiny villages, the opposition could be well entrenched, maybe the south pocket in idlib will be pushed again ?

      • goingbrokes

        Yes, this the most effective approach. But there won’t be ceasefire after the M5 is taken. The M5 can take 25th to Aleppo area within hours and then there will be a trouncing for the shithadists.

  • Assad must stay

    I remember seeing rashidin 4 and 5 on the map 3 years ago in 2017 when I first started following the war

    • FlorianGeyer

      Time seems to surge by.
      I first took interest in the Syrian conflict in 2011.

      • Assad must stay

        yes, time goes by too fast when we are enjoying life and too slow when we are not! it is not right :(

        • FlorianGeyer

          A friend of mine is currently in prison.
          My words to him were , ‘ Embrace what you can do, to and do not fret about what you cannot do. Time will then slip by ‘ .

          He agrees with that pragmatic philosophy and has not lost his ‘spark’.

          • Assad must stay

            yes for sure, we must not worry about what we cannot control, only what we can control, although sometimes it is much easier said than done :(

          • FlorianGeyer

            That’s very true. Its beneficial to be pragmatic and not to bow to anger.
            Anger served to make things worse in most cases. Cold and calculating is better.

            There have been times when I have literally waited patiently for years for the opportunity to someone a disservice :)

  • Tim Williams

    RAF is bombing the RAT positions right now, they have to be smoked out.

    This will be a fight to their death in an attempt to stop the SAA forces from the south linking up to ALLEPO CITY … it will be futile

    • FlorianGeyer

      The area is free of civilians I would think after years of war, so thermobarics and bunker busters will hopefully be on the Jihadi’s menu list.

  • Issam
  • Tim Williams

    SAA forces meet up with existing ALLEPO CITY forces at AL KHALIDIYAH … heavy resistance on the western flanks, being neutralized … SAA forces just south of ABU SHAYLAM now

  • antoun

    the start of the dead the saillant djihadist of hattan!! very nice news!! :)

  • goingbrokes

    Once the M5 is freed and cleared of mines etc. SF 25th will drive to Aleppo within hours, fully armed and dangerous. Even though the Rashidin 4 and surrounds are like swiss cheese with defensive works the daesh scumbags will run like rats from a sinking ship. They might anticipate it, and run before 25th gets there. Within days Aleppo will be secure from all but the most long ranged attacks.
    Nostalgia makes me think of the days when Tiger Forces went east from Aleppo all the way from the Khanasser plains to lift the siege of Deir Ezzor. It is an awesome story full of heroism and drama! Thank you SAA, you really are one of the best!

    • Assad must stay

      yea that was awesome when they liberated DeZ in fall of 2017 God i miss those days

  • Kire Stojanovski

    This is the 4-th division, I think?
