After the failure of the June offensive of the CAA in the mountainous Latakia was followed by a successful counterattack green, which led to the abandonment of several towns and an important settlement Kinaba. The enemy took serious trophies and planned to develop the offensive further. We have some alarmists even about the collapse of the front in Latakia started to rant. However, Assad’s army was able to regroup and just last week to start the operation to return the lost positions. Yesterday this operation led to the return of Kissably under the control of the CAA. Fighting in the city continues.The mountainous terrain here never favored the rapid breakthroughs.
Yesterday the blockade around the “green” areas of Aleppo was physically closed, the army went onto the road at Costello. De facto, the ring existed before, so as to move on the highway due to dense fire was almost impossible. But now, the route came under the control of the army in the truest sense of the word. Fighting for the farm Mallah seriously wore out the green, which suffered heavy losses in men and materiel, but were unable to break through the defense of the SAA in the mallah farms and push the Syrians to Jendarata. Continued fighting in the Aleppo, but there are no significant changes.Overall, the SAA gradually pressurizes green to the North of Aleppo and gradually converts its small tactical advance in a major operational success, which yesterday took quite a tangible form. The rate of the transfer operations to the North of the city itself, yet justifies. Countermeasures “green” in the Castello district was cropped, and a tactical victory green under al-Karasi and North-West of al-Khader has not led to the desired “green” to alleviate the situation to the North of the city.
To the North and East of Palmyra continued fierce fighting SAA with the forces of the Caliphate. Black trying to move in the direction of tadmur and to the South and South-West from the oil fields of al-Shaer. Fighting with varying success, but to achieve a decisive victory, until we can,
with Caution, 18+.
