“After the liberation of Housing Project 1070 and Tal al-Rakaham and Tal al-Moa’ta hills that extended the security ring around the Aleppo Military Academy Buildings on Tuesday, the Syrian army continued to storm the terrorists’ positions in the Southern part of Aleppo city and freed al-Hikmah School,” the sources said.
“The al-Rashedeen 4 and 5 districts are under the pro-government troops’ fire control and have fallen to the government fighters in military terms,” they said, adding that the army troops are very much likely to start an offensive soon to impose full control over the two regions.
Three more key districts in the Southern parts of Aleppo city fell into the hands of the Syrian army and popular forces after they captured Housing Project 1070 and several hills in the Southwestern parts of the flashpoint city on Tuesday.
“Liberation of Housing Project 1070 and the Tal al-Rakham and Tal Mo’ata hills has enabled the Syrian army to expand its security ring around Aleppo Military Academy Buildings, while terrorists’ positions in al-Rashedeen 4 and 5 as well as al-Hikmah School are under the direct fire of the army,” they added.
The tall buildings of Housing Project 1070 were used as watchposts by the militants to monitor army movements and arrange their attacks on adjacent neighborhoods, including their recent attack on Aleppo Military Academy Buildings.
