Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) – backed by Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) – launched a new offensive in the northwestern sector of Aleppo City on Monday morning, targeting the government-held districts of Al-Khalidiyah and Al-Zahra.

The extremist rebels began the offensive by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the Great Prophet Mosque in Al-Zahra; this resulted in a fierce battle that spread to the dilapidated Air Force Intelligence Headquarters.

Following a two hour long battle on Monday, the Syrian Arab Army – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) – foiled the infiltration attempt and recaptured the Great Prophet Mosque of Aleppo.

In addition to the attack at Al-Zahra, the Jihadist forces launched a powerful attack in the Al-Khalidiyah Industrial District, resulting in another series of intense firefights with the Syrian Armed Forces.

Clashes are still ongoing in the Al-Khalidiyah Industrial District; however, the main assault has been repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces.
