Swift advance today - now reported that the SAA has fully liberated Qaterji district and rebels/militants/headchoppers fleeing Sha'ar and Karm Jabal districts in order to avoid being cut off. Only a 1km wide passageway remains between the government-held citadel and National Eye Hospital captured an hour ago.

SAA advanced positions are now 500m from Citadel in some spots. Hopefully Al Shear and particularly Old Quarters will be abandoned tonight by rebels, so remaining cultural heritage would be spared from ground fighting.

This lighting advance surprised me, to be honest, as it is something unseen in whole war. Few pictures of what seem like Russian advisors on ground, and one video of what looked like UAV thermal imager footage while overseeing combat is certainly part of this success. There is also an abundance of ACOG sights and Shmels in government sponsored units, so this operation was indeed prepared with care.

Clearly, Iraqi and Iranian militias to the south are nowhere near the task, but Republican Guard and Tiger Force are making an impressive show.

And when you're done slaughtering all 200000 of them, a little help in attacking IS perhaps ?

You know - the stated objective of this operation

Objective is to eliminate terrorists and legal Syrian government ask leader of free world to help eliminate those enemies of humanity.

Your number are grossly overrated.

Still,Aleppo is almost liberated and deratizied.
You can thank Assad and leader of free world which stands on frontier of humanity to preserve our way of life.

Has ISIS 200000 men ?


A lot of SS were slaughtered in WWII, thus why should one not slaughter a lot of ISIS ?

IS isn't in Aleppo, they're in Raqqa, their self-proclaimed capital.

Butchering the residents of Aleppo is as helpful to winning the war against IS as slaughtering the residents of Warsaw was to winning WWII

But it is very satisfying to the Russian national ego, no doubt.

I don't support them, I just don't see the use in killing them.

They did not claim responsibility for any attacks against me (or you), IS did.

You don't see the use of eliminating terrorists,beheaders...?
Really?

You are OK when they terrorize Syrian people and you are against Russian intervention to stop them?

Really,you don't see AL qaeda as threat.?

They ARE Syrian people.

Just a different sect of Syrian people from the current local dictator.

Different brands of Syrians terrorizing each other in Syria is tragic, but none of my business.

Splinter bombs in Brussels are an entirely different matter though.
