According to the source, there were clashes in the Suweiqa area of the city; lots of gunmen were shot and engineering units had dismantled landmines and explosive devices along the road to Farafia. This was the first victory in the new campaign to eliminate rebel forces in Eastern Aleppo. The campaign, coordinating ground, air, and artillery components, was launched after a cease-fire for humanitarian aid backed by the US and Russia crumbled.
