When we talk with the Syrians about the post-war future of the country, many of them mention the hardworking people of Aleppo. That second large city of Syria the industrial capital of the republic. To restore production, the metropolis needs transport communications. The M5 highway between Aleppo and Damascus has been blocked since 2012. At first, the passage was blocked for the Syrian military. Then they blocked any movement for the civilian population from the territory of the government. In theory, free passage along the Aleppo-Damascus highway should have been opened in September 2018, after negotiations between the Presidents of Russia and Turkey. But this arrangement has not been implemented. The Turkish side constantly referred to the fact that nothing can be done about radical militants. The lack of a direct road continued to strangle Aleppo. Go to the Northwest Olive Garden After the liberation of Serakib (سراقب) units of the 25th division continued to move towards Aleppo. freeing the villages one by one on the western side of the M5 highway The closer they came to the northern capital of Syria [Aleppo] the more the resistance [of the militants] increased. “Lie down!” “(inaudible) there nearby…” It can be seen here that the Syrian army managed to push the front five kilometers from the western side of the Aleppo-Damascus highway The final goal of the offensive is the small town of Kafr Halab (كفر حلب). We must say that the military adversary here is offering substantial resistance. We see resist not only by movement of the enemy, but also he backfires from anti-aircraft guns and throws mortars Now the forces of the 25th division approached the city of Kafr Halab from three sides and will clean it. “Terrorist pickup truck is moving” Kafr Halab did not look like a fortified point. Having overcome the first resistance, the Syrian troops began to clean up the city. But the militants were seriously preparing to meet government troops. We learned about this a little later. “where is enemie?” “Senior Lieutenant Ali Hamo. Last shots in life.” [Ali Hamo’s tank fires on terrorists] Terrorists use their favorite tactics. They can’t stop government troops, so just here, literally a kilometer away, a car with a suicide bomber was blown up.. It’s good that we just left from there, as we were in the forefront. Settlement Kafr Halab was not such a simple destination. After the suicide bombing, the militants went on the counterattack. Syrian army units retreated a little from the city, delivering artillery attacks. The troops are now focusing here to attack and recapture the village. [One by one, forward 50 meters!] Despite all efforts the terrorists were not able to drive out government troops from Kafr Halab. All their subsequent attacks were repelled on the way to the city. When this hard day was approaching sunset, the terrorists again sent suicide bombers to the [government] positions.. Monstrous power explosion of the infernal machine could not force the 25th division to retreat. Kafr Halab was withheld. [Millitants video] “[We] get to Ma’arrat al-Nu’man (معرة النعمان) and more!” “Takbir!” “the fighters have high morale after they decided to counterattack in the province of Idlib” It is worth noting that all the latest militant counterattacks were somehow supported by Turkey. This is evidenced by materials published by extremists. On the video you can see the new Turkish armored vehicles, self-propelled rocket launchers that support the assault of bandit formations on the M5 highway. Repulse of the terrorist attack on the positions of government troops. [BMP was destroyed by the ATGM team] [February 11th. Outskirts of Al-Nayrab (النيرب)] We are in the long-suffering city of Al-Nayrab, where for the third time in ten days, terrorists are trying to make their way to Serakib. But, like previous attempts, this counterattack ended in complete failure for them Kafr Halab was not in vain chosen by government forces to strike. This city stands on top of a high hill. At the foot of the hill, a fertile plain extends to the north. Securing the M5 Highway was impossible without control of this strategically important point. As soon as this task was completed, the forces of the 25th division descended into the valley and continued to move north. “Madget, Madget, send one tank to the factory” 12th of February. Outskirts of Kafr Halab. This is how the Syrians storm the small town of Ferna(?). The militants are on the back of the slope. As soon as the army reaches the slope fire was immediately opened from the side of the mountains. The army reveals the enemy firing points and then suppresses them. “In response to us militants hit back.” This is how the militants respond to the advancing government troops. They use artillery for this, but they shoot extremely inaccurately. Projectile flight beyond the target about one and half kilometer. For two days, government forces advanced significantly. During the attack on the night of February 13-14 The Tigers cut the highway that linked Aleppo with Idlib before the war. [The 14th of February. Highway Aleppo – Idlib.] General Suhel Hassan smashed here the rear of the Aleppo terrorist group, which since 2012 did not allow the northern capital of Syria to live in peace. Here is the shortest road to the border crossing of Bab al-Hawa (باب الهوى). through which the main deliveries are made of equipment and weapons to militants are carried out. Therefore, the terrorists stood here until the end, and many of them remained lying in this land. [Mercenary from al Qaeda.] This, apparently, in order to drop from the quadcopter. They make such charges with shrapnel and explosives. Here is some kind of marking. Very weighty. “White helmets” – together we go to the safety of society Shiites are enemies of Islam. After we liberated Asz-Szajch Ali (الشيخ علي), we move towards Urum al-Sughra (أورم الصغرى) Now we are preparing to liberate Urum al-Kubrah (أورم الكبرى), but we are faced with a lot of jihad cars Many foreigners are fighting against us. While we were advancing on Urum al-Kubrah, the militants launched a counterattack on Armanaz (أرمناز) together with the suicide bombers. God bless, you will soon hear good news about Urum al-Kubrah and its surroundings. The forces of the 25th division advanced in the direction of Aleppo. To the nearest positions of government troops in the city of Khan al-Assal (خان العسل) in a straight line remained seven kilometers. And only two large settlements. But the main strike units of the Tiger Forces at this time repulsed attacks on the city of Mizanaz (ميزناز). [Sign: “Songs are haram”] The whole side is controlled by militants. Lads, move around the mound, seek cover. We, the 25th division of the Syrian armed forces, repulsed атаку на Mizanaz, We repulsed the attack and God bless, you can see the enemy’s losses. Their corpses are scattered on the ground. Today is Friday. We repelled a major attack in the Jazrāyā sector (جزرايا) Thanks to the actions of the fighters of the 25th division, Turkish armored vehicles were destroyed. Before you are the corpses of militants. The 14th of February. Aleppo – Idlib Highway. The attack on this day decided to transfer to the dark. So the Syrian army can fully realize its advantage in technical equipment. The technological progress of the Syrian army does not stand still. They equip ordinary ZU-23-2 with night vision. And now the usual anti-aircraft gun has turned into a formidable weapon in the dark. The main work in the night is undertaken by modernized Russian tanks. February, 15. Aleppo – Idlib Highway. Urum al-Kubrah. [We have not choice.] Head office of checkpoints. Act, ZU, act! Now we are on the outskirts of the suburbs of Aleppo, in the city of Kafer Naal (36.159441, 36.974944), and, in theory, the militants were supposed to leave here at night. Because the city of Khan al-Asal (خان العسل) lies ahead, which has been occupied by the Republican Guard for about a week. And already at night, the Tiger Forces kept under fire all the roads leading here. [Failak al-Sham is the main force.] Unfortunately, the enemy was still in the city. The enemy occupies the central part. Now they are trying to get around the enemy from the flanks. Airstrike suppresses the last point of resistance by militants. The radicals cannot oppose anything against the combat power of the Syrian army, so the only most desperate fanatics have remained here, who have vowed to die are left here. The terrorists themselves call them ingimashi. Document on taking the courses of “ingimashi” camp “al-Fatihin-1” named Khattab Abu Zuhur, Military Academy, General Directorate. “Tahrir al-Sham – economic administration of the city of Khan al-Assal” February, 15. Aleppo suburbs. We, 25th Tiger Force division, with the help of Allah, have cleared the road to the city of Aleppo. We almost reached the city of Khan al-Assal and we dedicate our victory to President Bashar al-Assad. With the help of Allah, we will reach Aleppo and liberate the whole land, that deserves our sacrifices. We wish the dead to be in paradise the wounded to recover, and congratulations to all the Syrian people. The road to Aleppo was completely open. It was felt that the 25th division was literally on the heels of the retreating jihadists. But the militants do not appear “out of nowhere” and do not disappear “nowhere.” And if they left the suburbs of Aleppo, the main question was “Where will they appear again?” February 16th. Attack of militants on the city of Mizanaz. APC BMP with landing troops covers by hitted tank. BMP was able to reach the outskirts of the village. Landing terrorists occupy the first houses. BMP returns for the new landing troops group. But the BMP could not reach the outskirts of the village. The militants are trying to gain a foothold in the embankment in the field. We were at Mizanaz after the terrorists entrenched on the outskirts of this village. Then the Syrians urgently transferred an assault group under the command of Lieutenant Ali Idris. The task of the group was to stop the advancement of the militants. Take sniper rifle with you! Lads, back to embarkement! There’s two houses! Fire them! Pull the wounded! Where is wounded? We shoot another militant counterattack on video. We went ahead with the assault group. And they clamped us here. Right in front of us is a school, that militants are said to have escaped .. We also heard that by opening close fire on us Unfortunately, one [fighter] from our group was wounded. We had to bandage him. Soft tissue wound, bleeding stopped. Everything will be fine. The explosion near you is the enemy, this is not us. Copy! Explosions around us all directions. Cover them! Cover! Stop, stop! Move to houses, one by one! Wait a second! one by one! What are you saying? I put it for you! “Air reconnaissance” We managed to get out Now, you see, from this side the government troops drove the tank and began to bypass from this side simultaneously shooting all the houses, because from somewhere there they constantly fired on us. Terrorists managed to get out of rural buildings. But fierce firefight continued on the outskirts. Here, near the earth embarkment, a large detachment of terrorists fell into the trap. And only then we learned that artillery had a real slaughter for the fanatics of this mound. Militants troops trying to hold over the mounds. the surviving group changes position The group is destroyed. Detonate ammunition. Still working! Callsign – Abu Hussein Jays Ali We fighters of the 25th Tiger Force division today repelled a major attack on Mizanaz. Before you are broken vehicles and dozens of corpses. And this is all thanks to Allah. More recently, these guns of hellfire terrified the inhabitants of Western Aleppo. Hundreds of people died or became .crippled from terrorist attacks. Now government troops have thrown the radicals to a safe distance from the city Recently, this seemed unthinkable, because Aleppo seemed too valuable a prize for jihadists to simply refuse it. Having been defeated in 2016, the militants hatched plans for re-assaulting the city. Therefore, a powerful group of militants was concentrated on the western outskirts of the northern capital of Syria, which included a considerable number of foreign jihadists. Most of them were in the banned in Russia Hayat Tahrir Ash-Sham. The blow of the 25th division to the rear of the militants did not leave them a chance to maintain their position. Now the radical groups was forced to retreat to the Turkish border. The terrorists wanted to impose their barbaric ideology on the inhabitants of Aleppo. But instead, mountains of corpses and tons of trophies were left in the suburbs. aluminum phosphide is an extremely toxic pesticide. aluminum powder – “silver” foreign mercenaries invoice Tahrir al-Sham. building layout Zahra Aleppo.
