MESOP FLASH SYRIA : Rebels Renew Advance South of Aleppo, Defeat Iranian Forces

Rebels have advanced again south of Aleppo city, again defeating forces led by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

The Jaish al-Fatah bloc expanded their control near Khan Tuman, the town close to the Aleppo-to-Damascus highway that they captured last month. They defeated Iranian units and Iranian-led foreign militia to the east of the own, destroyed a battle tank and several vehicles. Among the area taken was a large military fuel depot (see map). – The rebels held the positions despite, in the words of one local source, “Insane air attacks on the battlefield. Russia and regime deploying everything that can fly.”
