Frontline detachments of the Syrian Army and militia have liberated the Al-Owaija district and taken control of a segment of the highway at the Jandoul roundabout, sources in the city militia have reported to RIA Novosti.
“We have deeply penetrated the eastern neighborhoods from the north. Today the army and our detachments liberated Al-Owaija and the Jandoul roundabout,” the source reported.
According to the militia’s reports, after taking Owaija, it is now possible to continue the offensive on the Bustan al-Basha district seized by the terrorists.
The advance from the north of Aleppo began with the liberation of the Palestinian refugee camp of Handarat. Next the Kindi hospital (the largest in the Middle East) was liberated along with the Shkeif district at the entrance to the city.
