Retreat of Terrorists: Syria Government Forces Seize Strategic Aleppo Hill, Set Sights On Major Offensive

In-depth Report:

The Syrian army and militia fighters have beat back terrorists from the Bazo hill in southern Aleppo, the city militia  has reported to RIA Novosti.

“The offensive is continuing successfully. Together with the army, we have taken the Bazo height, another hill, and the militants in the 1070 neighborhood are completely surrounded,” the source reported.

From the Bazo height, a large portion of the 1070 neighborhood captured by terrorists can now be controlled.

As part of the offensive which began in southern Aleppo yesterday following the three-day humanitarian pause, Syrian troops plan to seize the neighboring Hekma height, which would allow them to completely cut off all militant supply routes to the 1070 neighborhood.

On Sunday night, Syrian troops successfully recaptured anti-air defense positions and the neighboring height, where a mobile communications tower is situated. The terrorists have put up fierce resistance and the army and militia’s positions have been subjected to intense mortar fire.
