BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has scored a new advance in the western countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, following a failed counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels earlier in the day.

According to a field source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army has captured the Uram Al-Kubri area after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) in the western part of the governorate.

Furthermore, early reports from western Aleppo indicate that the Syrian Army is also in control of the Al-Radwan Association Quarter; however, it is not confirmed at this time.

This latest advance by the Syrian Arab Army comes just hours after they foiled the jihadist counter-offensive at the Regiment 46 Base in western Aleppo.

During their counter-attack near the base, the Turkish-backed militants of the National Liberation Front (NLF) managed to shoot down a Syrian military chopper; they would release footage of its downing shortly after.

Great for Syria and the world in having the SAA and RuAF remove more of these foreign-sponsored jihadis. That is because at the end of the Syrian conflict there will be less of these head-choppers and hum-liver eaters to be smuggled to Africa/Afghanistan/Iran/Iraq/Libya/S.E. Asia/Xinjiang (China) in order to cause trouble. The world owes a debt to both the Syrian Government and the Russians. Other foreign governments should contribute and help out with rebuilding to come in Syria.
