The Syrian Army has launched a massive operation against terrorist located at the eatern outskirts of Aleppo. The Syrian Army released a statement which reads thus
“The Syrian Army launched an offensive in the eastern parts of Aleppo. We urge all civilians to stay away from the places with high concentration of militants and command posts of terrorist groups.”
This comes after the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly to begin its second meeting to discuss ceasefire agreements agreed upon by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry. The ceasefire however was scuttled after a US-led airstrike bombed a Syrian Army position during the weekend, resulting in the death of Â 62 servicemen and injuring 100 more. US Central Command has admitted responsibility for the strike, saying it mistook the Syrian forces for Daesh terrorists. In addition to American fighters, the UK, Australia, and Denmark were also involved in the incident.
Increasingly there are doubts from the Syrian Government and their closest ally Russia as to the exact intent of the US with various allegations that the US might be tacitly supporting ISIS.
