Fierce fighting is ongoing in the city of Aleppo and its surroundings.

To defend from ongoing attacks and for its offensive against the Islamist coalition of Jaish al-Fatah in Western Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army has deployed its most elite units and best military vehicles and equipment.

At the same time that a large column of special Tiger Forces arrived in Aleppo, the Desert Falcons Brigade also joined the battle for the largest city in Syria. In addition to the elite forces of the SAA, Russia has transferred and supplied modern T-90 tanks to Aleppo. 

With the help of the best soldiers and newest vehicles, the Syrian Army and Lebanese Hezbollah are continuing their military operation in Aleppo to halt the advance of terrorists in the western suburbs of the city.

Under the command of the Tiger Force assault brigade and Desert Falcons, government troops and Hezbollah have repelled several attacks by militants in the Minyan and al-Assad districts, as a result of which bandits from the Islamist coalition of Jaish al-Fatah were eliminated.

According to war correspondents on the battlefield, government troops and Hezbollah took control over a large number of buildings in the Al-Assad district after the terrorist offensive was repelled. During the operation, dozens of terrorists were eliminated, the majority of whom belonged to Jebat al-Nusra and Jaish al-Fatah.

As a result of the combat operation, the army was able to catch the militant groups that had set up in some buildings in the Al-Assad district in a cauldron. SAA troops destroyed a considerable amount of equipment and militants. Some of the bandits were taken prisoner.

At the same time, in the 1070 apartment complex district of Al-Hamdania, Hezbollah also halted an attack by jihadists and regained control over the complex of buildings in this southwestern district of Aleppo. 

The day before, government troops took control of the Tel-Shair district, the infantry school, Fafin, the cement plant, and Qafr Qars and Tel-Sausin in northern Aleppo. 

Intense battles are also raging in the Minyan district, where the Syrian Army now controls most buildings. The terrorists had seized Minyan on October 29th as a result of a large-scale offensive that attempted to break the blockade of the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo held by militants. On October 31st, the Syrian Army reestablished near total control over the residential area after a large-scale attack on the south and west of the frontlines in Aleppo. 

Military operations against the gangs in Minyan are being led by the Desert Falcons recently deployed to Aleppo.

In addition, the latest footage from the site of fighting revealed that the Syrian Army is using Russian T-90 tanks in the battle for Aleppo.

T-90 tanks were first seen in Syria in late 2015 on the battlefield in the southern part of Aleppo. They were then observed on the front near Palmyra and in Western Raqqa.
