A recording of a new statement by Abu Mohammad al Julani the head of Jabhat Fateh al Sham (formerly al Nusra Front) was recently spread among rebel groups and terrorists, surrounded by SAA in the eastern districts of Aleppo.
He preached the rebels that the SAA “infidels” and “godless” (Shia militias and Hezbollah) will be stricken from two directions by the FSA units, which according to him would lead to the complete liberation of the eastern part of the city. Thus Fateh al Sham no longer considers it necessary to conceal its alliance with the Free Syrian Army.
According to Conflict Overwatch Group, rebel groups are already regrouping in the areas of Bustan al Pasha and Hellok. They obtained heavy weapons, armored vehicles, and a number of MLRS.
