Syrian Army on brink of victory in Aleppo, Jihadis surrendering

A handout picture released by the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), shows Syrian army units and pro-government forces deploying at an undisclosed location in the Atshan village in central province of Hama, on October 11, 2015. Regime forces advanced in the central Syrian province of Hama against armed opposition groups in a ground operation backed by Russian air strikes.

Following yesterday’s reports of Al-Qaeda commanders negotiating to surrender in eastern Aleppo come reports today of Jihadi fighters giving up, surrendering themselves to the Syrian authorities, and being taken away from Aleppo in green buses.

It seems that the total number of diehard Jihadis still resisting the Syrian army in eastern Aleppo may have fallen to no more than a few hundred.  The area of eastern Aleppo that is still contested meanwhile has shrunk to just 10 square kilometres, and it seems that no significant part even of this area is fully Al-Qaeda controlled any longer.

It is not clear where the Jihadis who have surrendered are being taken to.  However it seems more likely that they are being bused to Turkey whence they came, rather than to the Al-Qaeda controlled provincial capital of Idlib to Aleppo’s west.

It seems that the ‘Great Battle of Aleppo’ is almost ended, and that the Syrian army is on the brink of winning its greatest victory of the Syrian war.
