Attack on the Aleppo Central Prison is Repulsed by the Syrian Arab Army
Yesterday, at 3 A.M. Damascus Time, insurgents from Ahrar al-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra coordinated an attack on the Aleppo Central Prison.
The attack began with a VBIED (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device), which was used to breach the walls of the prison, previously; however, this time, the impact was not enough to penetrate through the defenses.
Artillery fire was exchanged between the SAA and the insurgents that resulted in 3 Syrian soldiers killed and more than a dozen wounded.
After three hours of violent firefights, the SAA was able to forestall the advance of the insurgents and counter with repeated shelling of the enemy’s position.
As the insurgents retreated, the Syrian Air Force bombarded the enemy as they began to seek shelter west of the Central Prison. Lt. Jazayf Daher of the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Army Corps – located at the Central Prison – stated the recent capture of Sheikh Najar in Aleppo has pressured the insurgents to attack SAA strongholds in order to prolong the imminent siege of Anadan.
The Syrian Arab Army has opened up a new front in Aleppo, as troops from Sheikh Najar have attacked insurgent positions at Haylaan and the stone quarries outside of the Haandarat District.
Yesterday, the SAA began operations on the outskirts of Haylaan and the stone quarries, but the attacks did not advance their position. The assault is expected to continue this morning with the Syrian Air Force’s aerial bombardment of enemy strongholds.
