Syrians clash around 12th century mosque in Aleppo

BEIRUT (AP) -- Syrian rebels clashed with regime troops in the narrow stone alleyways around a historic 12th century mosque in the Old City of Aleppo on Thursday, while a government airstrike north of the city killed at least seven people, activists said.

The rebels, who have been slowly chipping away at the regime's hold on Aleppo, received a boost from the U.S. in their fight to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Washington pledged an additional $60 million in assistance to the opposition and - in a significant policy shift - said that for the first time it will provide non-lethal aid like food and medical supplies directly to rebel forces on the ground.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced the decision Thursday on the sidelines of an international conference on Syria in Rome. European nations also were expected to signal their intention to provide fresh assistance to the opposition, possibly including defensive military hardware.

The rebels have made a number of strategic gains in northern Syria in recent weeks, including the capture of a hydroelectric dam and some military bases. They also have been regularly hitting the heart of Damascus with mortar rounds, puncturing the aura of normalcy that the regime has tried to cultivate in the capital.

In Aleppo, a key battleground in the civil war, clashes raged around the landmark Umayyad Mosque in the walled Old City, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The rebels control one part of the mosque, and government troops hold the other.

Rebels launched an offensive on Aleppo, Syria's largest urban center and its commercial capital, in July 2012. Since then, the city has been carved into rebel- and government-controlled zones in brutal street fighting that has destroyed entire neighborhoods and damaged some of the ancient city's rich archaeological and cultural heritage.

The Umayyad Mosque, also known as the Great Mosque of Aleppo, sits near a medieval covered market in the Old City, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The mosque was heavily damaged in October 2012 just weeks after a fire gutted the old city's famed market.

North of Aleppo, a government airstrike on the village of Deir Jamal killed at least seven people, including five children, according to the Observatory. It was not immediately clear what the target was, but regime warplanes frequently carry out bombing runs on rebel-held towns.

Farther south, in the central city of Homs, the state news agency said a car bomb caused casualties and extensive material damage, but it did not elaborate.

Food and medical supplies such as guns, manpads, anti-tank missiles etc etc

USA is not going to send manpads to rebels. Are you crazy? It would be used next against commercial US jets. Most aid provided to rebels is by Qatar and Saudia. I think, FSA and other Jihadist groups get equal aid from governments. But Jihadist groups get little extra from religious people on the ground in Saudia.

USA is not supporting and they don't need to support rebels militarily.

If Aleppo falls, Assad is done for. I hope it will be soon. Losing Aleppo would mean, FSA can send significant boost of troops to fight in many other areas of the country. Regime areas in Aleppo are completely surrounded. That means, rebels can get new troops and more weapons inside the city. And make surge of troops from Aleppo to fight in Idlib and move troops from Idlib to take major military locations inside Aleppo. But regime can not move troops in, or out of Aleppo and can not send supplies. So basicly day by day regime troops in Aleppo are getting less and less, while opposition can all the time get new recruits from cities north and south of Aleppo and new weapons from Turkey border. Regime troops in Aleppo are fighting a battle, they are going to lose.

Regime troops in Aleppo and rebel troops in Homs city are in a similar situation. But Homs is not major and ultimate victory for the regime, while Aleppo is that for the rebels. Place where more, than 1,5 million Sunnis live. Place for LOTS of recruits. From Aleppo alone there is potential for 50.000-100.000 recruits for the rebels. But only, if they get full control of the city.

Yes i'm worried about Aleppo, not sure what is happening there, everyday i read about how in some parts of the city the army re-captures some area and other places the terrorist make inroads.

Going of these wiki maps, it looks like the terrorists are increasing their control over the city

Such a shame especially since everyone knows that Aleppo is a majority support area for Al Assad, where he enjoys true grass roots support from all of Syria's religious sects where the citizens live in harmony and prosperity, Aleppo is possibly Syria's richest and largest city. I bet the local population must be enraged with Turkey for allowing all these jihadi terrorists from all over the world to use Allepos unfortunate gepgraphic location of being situated close to Turkey to flood it and ruin their city.

The bottom line is Al Assad can't let it fall to the enemy terrorists, he will have to keep reinforcing his front lines no matter what, because if Allepo falls, although he seems to be getting on top in the south, and on the west, Aleppo will give the terrorists an ability to cement their control in the vast northern area and give them the ability to start looking like some kind of governing force, witch will eventually turn the Northern area into a much larger launching pad for all out offensive for control of the rest of the country.

It is not about holding the line. If the Syrian government wants to survive, it needs to give a HUGE blow to terrorists and their backers in Aleppo. This will change the entire course of ZioSalafis in the region, and hopefully Iran, Hizb, Iraq and others will extend their aids in this battle and South of Damascus. The disease will spread to Iraq and even to Iran’s borders, it needs to be dried right there.

Syria should liberate Aleppo in any cost, it should go for an intensive battle even if it costs thousands of soldiers. The terrorists' backers in the west are playing it dirty, the response should be very harsh, else everyone should expect the death and destruction of millions of innocent people by these terrorist groups.

alhamdullah, good news

(Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces seized a village southeast of the city of Aleppo on Friday, reopening a supply line to the country's biggest city where they have been battling rebels for eight months, a monitoring group said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the capture of Tel Shghaib marked the last step to creating a land supply route north into Aleppo from Hama province, crucial for Assad's forces who have lost control of part of the main north-south highway.

Rebels say they hold most of the city itself and nearly all the rural hinterland. But they have been unable to achieve a decisive victory and complain that they are outgunned and vulnerable to Assad's air force, artillery and ballistic missiles, which killed dozens of people in Aleppo last week.

The United States pledged direct but non-lethal aid to the rebels at a meeting in Rome on Thursday, disappointing Assad's opponents who had hoped for more tangible military support to tip the balance of forces on the ground.

Activists reported another day of fierce fighting around Aleppo, including the military airport at Nairab, three miles north of Tel Shghaib which Assad's forces retook.

"It's a significant gain for the regime," the British-based Observatory's director Rami Abdelrahman said of the army's push north, which reversed many rebel advances when they moved south into Hama from Aleppo province at the end of last year.

Further east, on the Iraqi frontier, government troops also managed to wrest back control of the Yarubiyah border crossing after insurgents seized it 24 hours earlier, he said.

Syria Army says killed more foreign-backed militants, seized their weapons

The Syrian Army says it has killed more foreign-backed militants and seized their weapons during an ongoing operation across the country.

Syrian government forces launched attacks against militants in Harasta, Bastara and al-Ebb farms in al-Ghouta al-Sharqieh in Damascus countryside on Sunday and killed a large number of them, the official SANA news agency reported.

In addition, the Syrian armed forces captured weapons and ammunition inside a tunnel. They also destroyed five vehicles along with a large number of weapons and ammunition inside them.

Syrian troops also killed a number of militants and several of their leaders in Kafer Dael, Babiss, Khan al-Assal and Kafr Naha in the countryside outside Aleppo.

The Syrian troops have also seized many weapons, including thermal anti-tank missiles and machineguns in Joubar, al-Soultania and Kafer ay'a areas in Homs countryside.

The Army also killed and wounded many members of armed groups in the governorates of Idlib, Daraa and Hama. Several insurgents were also reportedly killed during the operations.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of Army and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government has said that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and that a very large number of the militants operating in the country are foreign nationals.

Several international human rights organizations have accused foreign-sponsored militants of committing war crimes.

In an interview recently broadcast on German television, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that the government did not start the conflict and the militant groups were the ones killing Syrian citizens and destroying the country’s infrastructure.

The Syrian Army says it has inflicted heavy losses on foreign-backed militants who are fighting against the government.

Friday saw another day of clashes in different places across the country.

In the flashpoint city of Aleppo, some leaders of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front were killed, and one of the group’s military commanders died in the fighting, the official SANA news agency reported.

The army said it also killed and wounded many “terrorists” in the fighting in the Damascus suburbs of Jobar, al-Moaddamieh, Darayya, Doumaal-Zabadani, al-Nabik, and al-Hajar al-Aswad and seized their weapons.

Abdul-Rahman Amin, Ahmad Sharshar, Bashir Taffour, Amer Hussein, Muhammad al-Ka'ka, and Ahmad al-Raksha were identified among the dead.

Syrian government forces also launched attacks against militants in the governorates of Homs, Al-Hasakah, and Deir Ezzor, killed a large number of them, and captured many machine guns, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and anti-tank missiles.

In addition, a unit of the Syrian armed forces ambushed militants affiliated with the al-Nusra Front in the town of Deir Ezzor and killed many of them, including their leader, Samer Antar al-Muhaisen.

The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.

In an interview broadcast on German television on February 20, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that the government did not start the conflict and the militant groups were the ones killing Syrian citizens and destroying the country’s infrastructure. PressTv
