They also said that they destroyed 3 Russian military vehicles with anti-tank missiles on the road on Friday.
FSA and rebel fighters have continued the push on western Aleppo to break the siege on the rebel-held areas in the city’s east. On Friday, they announced they managed to break into the strategic 3,000 Apartments Project area.
The Hezbollah militia, one of various foreign Iranian-backed militias fighting alongside regime forces in Aleppo, announced that 8 of its militants were killed in clashes with FSA and rebel fighters in the city on Thursday.
Member of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee Muwaffaq Nyrabiya on Friday commended the sacrifices made by the FSA and rebel fighters trying to break the Assad regime’s siege on eastern Aleppo, calling on all the Free Syrian Army and rebel groups to unite under one national project.
Nyrabiya pointed out that the FSA and rebel fighters in Aleppo are fighting a battle of self-defense against regime forces and their allied Iranian-backed militias, stressing that the Syrian people will continue the fight to ward off the Russian blatant aggression on Syria.
Nyrabiya highly praised the heroic resistance and steadfastness shown by the people of eastern Aleppo as well as their refusal to leave their homes, emphasizing their right to stay in their city and to resist the mass forced displacement and demographic change operations policies being pursued by the Assad regime and its Russian and Iranian allies.
