After several months of attacks from the air fighters under the leadership of the rebel coalition made a dramatic breakthrough in the liberation of the siege of Aleppo, the largest city of Syria. Their attack is the first test for the new group, born out the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda.
The advance of the rebels which they called "the Great battle for Aleppo" - could change the landscape of the conflict in the North of Syria. There is no doubt that the resumption of hostilities, as well as waves of airstrikes and rocket attacks, launched in response, cause further suffering and destruction in the old city of Syria.
The rebel attack was made, led by Jabhat Fateh al-sham, formerly known as the al-Nusra front. Two weeks ago, al-Nusra front has said publicly that violated their long-standing relationship with al-Qaeda, in order to establish closer alliances with other jihadist and rebel groups in Syria.
"To combine our efforts and series is extremely important to achieve the goals of the Syrian revolution," declared Jabhat Fateh al sham, anticipating "complete fusion of all groups."
The leader of al Nusra, Abu Muhammad al-Dzhulani told about the assault on Aleppo in an audio message on Friday, celebrating "a merging and unity of the factions against the enemy." According to own statements of the group and its suicide bombers have played a key role in the promotion, including the seizure of a military government complex in the heart Ramosaj. State media in Syria denied that the property was lost, but pictures and videos out of scope, prove the opposite.
It is unclear how many weapons were seized in the process. Karam al-Masri, an independent journalist in Eastern Aleppo, said that the coalition was able to get all the weapons stored in the complex.
The rebel offensive moved the fight in a dense urban area. According to the Syrian Observatory for human rights and other sources in Aleppo, the rebels inside the city pushed to the allies, who moved from the South-West and in the end United on Saturday. The rebel group posted a video allegedly showing their fighters that was found.
