Battle for strategic southern Aleppo hilltop intensifies


Hours after the smoke cleared above Umm Qara Hill, the Syrian Armed Forces launched a powerful assault to reestablish control over this key site in southern Aleppo.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attacked Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) positions on the other side of Umm Qara Hill, resulting in a violent exchange of mortar shells and rockets before the Russian Air Force intervened.

According to a local military source, the Russian Air Force has conducted over 20 airstrikes above southern Aleppo today, targeting Jaysh Al-Fateh’s positions inside the provincial capital’s southern districts and Al-Qarassi village.

Meanwhile, north of Umm Qara Hill, the Syrian Armed Forces have infiltrated Jaysh Al-Fateh’s defenses at the Aleppo Artillery Academy, leaving them in control of the northern entrance to this imperative military installation.
