Syrian Army captures SyriaTel Hill in southern Aleppo

The Syrian Armed Forces, backed by Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), reportedly captured SyriaTel Hill in southern Aleppo today after repelling the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) counter-offensive this morning.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies stormed SyriaTel Hill's eastern flank, where they were confronted by an exhausted Jaysh Al-Fateh unit.

Following a violent exchange of gunfire, the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh withdrew from SyriaTel Hill, leaving this site wide-open for the Syrian Armed Forces to establish control of.

With the capture of SyriaTel Hill today, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are steadily advancing west towards the Army Artillery Base near Musharifah.
