The Western-backed ‘moderate opposition’ have deployed over 30 car bombs (mostly suicide car bombs) for the Aleppo battle, according to local media activists and pro-militant sources.
Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and other ‘moderate opposition’ groups have already used at least 2 suicide car bombs (also known as suicide vehicle borne improvised explosive devices) and one ‘remote-controlled’ car bomb since today morning.
Pro-militant sources believe that the suicide bombers should allow the ‘opposition’ to overcome the Syrian army’s firepower and to break the Aleppo siege.
In total, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and its allies have concentrated some 3,000 fighters, up to 30 artillery units and unspecified number of heavy military equipment for the ongoing advance in western Aleppo.
The pro-government forces in the area are a defensive position now, responding with massive artillery fire and air strikes.
