This Month in Salaheddin, Aleppo

I stopped keeping count of the regime’s claims to have recaptured Salaheddin after the first couple of times. For the past two months they have bombarded the neighbourhood senseless and attempted to storm and control it many times, but failed to do so up to this day. At most they advanced into some parts of it, only to eventually withdraw again. Despite all the death and destruction unleashed upon the neighbourhood by the regime, Salaheddin, the place where it all started, has been and continues to be the front line. The following is a compilation of footage covering events that have taken place in the neighbourhood for the past month or so. They contain clashes, footage of the damage and destruction as well as other relevant matters.

Yesterday, September 21, tanks are back to moving around in Hamdaniyye (west of Salaheddin), the same place they were two months ago:

Yesterday as well, Assad’s troops are being prevented from moving into the neighbourhood:

Also from yesterday, damage and destruction from shelling and bombardments of the Shariah secondary girls school and its surroundings. That looks like Commander Abu Bakri who was interviewed by Ghaith Abdul-Ahad for his documentary “The Battle of Syria”:

August 13, immense destruction:

August 13, regime propaganda: Salah al-Din is once more under their control, and people are cheering them on and returning to their “homes”. The most bizarre lie of all is how all the destruction and devastation is explicitly shown and simply blamed on groups with small arms rather than the rampage by the army and air force.
