After yesterday advances, the Syrian Army’s Republican Guard, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah are in control about 80% of the 1070 Apartment Project in southwestern Aleppo.

On August 16, there were reports that the pro-government forces liberated the whole area. However, this was not confirmed. The Syrian government forces seek control of the 1070 Housing Project in order to tighten fire control of the militant corridor to eastern Aleppo. This will also allow to defend the strategic area of the 3000 Apartment Project and set a foothold for further advances.

Pro-government sources say that from up to 80 Jaish al-Fatah militants were killed in the clashes. In turn, pro-militant sources argue that at least 40 members of the Syrian army and Hezbolalh were killed. The numbers cannot be verified.
