The very moving video inside shows a soldier hug his family after 5 years of separation, as a major suburb of Aleppo is retaken by Syria from the terrorists. The fighting in Aleppo, Syria, has been particularly protracted as it has been one of the last bastions of the terrorist forces that are trying to take over Syria. These forces are backed by the United States and NATO and their allies, which, shamefully, include Australia. The Syrian Arab Army has lost about 80,000 soldiers trying to defend Syria, which has a secular government, from takeover by militant religious fundamentalists. Most remaining Syrians are sheltered behind lines held by the Syrian Arab Army, although Australia, NATO and the US view this army as the 'enemy'. The so-called 'Rebels' which Australia, NATO and the United States support, have used people in captive cities as human shields to stop the Syrian Arab Army and Russia from bombing these terrorists. US-NATO have turned this round as propaganda, pretending that the necessity of bombing the fundamentalist forces, is a gratuitous form of bombing civilians. US-NATO have maliciously failed to acknowledge that those civilians are being held against their will. President Elect Trump seems to want to change this and to help Syria to retain its sovereignty by cooperating with the Russian Army. To anyone who is not a crazed fundamentalist guerilla, this seems the only way to go. We congratulate the Syrian Arab Army on its hard-won gains in Aleppo and its surrounds and we wish that our government would cease its support for the terrorists by lifting sanctions imposed by Bob Carr under the pretext that the Syrian Government had massacred its own supporters at Hula.
"The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces and allied pro-government groups have fully liberated the key area of Hanano Housing in the northeastern part of Aleppo city (more about the miliary sutioation in general can be found here). The area had been controlled by Jaish al-Fatah militants. With liberation of the Hanano Housing, government forces can threat to split the eastern Aleppo pocket with capturing Sakhur and linking the frontline up in Suleiman Halabi. Another option that now becomes possible with the success in Hanano Housing is to encircle Jaish al-Fatah units between Hanano and Jabal Badro in southeastern Aleppo. Government forces advadnce in southeastern Aleppo is ongoing." Source: https://southfront.org/government-forces-take-control-of-hanano-housing/.
