Media: In the west of Aleppo, government forces repulsed a massive Islamist attack

Units of the Syrian army with the support of the militia fought off a large-scale attack undertaken by militants "Dzhebhat Al-Nusra" and allied groups in the western part of the city of Aleppo, reports RIA News.

“The attack was so massive that the military had to request support for the Syrian air force. Air strikes killed dozens of militants ",
said a source in the militia.

According to the Sputnik agency, also citing a source, “militants attacked the city from five directions at once, but after work aviation the terrorists retreated. ”

Data on losses among government forces are not given.

The situation in the city worsened about 10 days ago - the militants began to fire Aleppo from mortars and rocket launchers. More than a hundred people died, hundreds were injured. For their part, the Syrian military revealed the temporary positions of mobile installations and destroyed them.

      Until they take Raku - the capital and symbol of IS, so everything will be "on the sly". In the face of fatigue from the 4-year war and numerous losses, Assad's army is rebuilding its strength. To this everything went in the political process. As for Aleppo, in the opinion of our well-known BV specialist Semyon Bogdasarov, it can take up to several years to completely clean it up. So let's not rush things.

      Yes, they would have continued, and if they had not cleared them, they would have pretty much exhausted the barmaleev ... There is one BUT: the games of the United States and the "democratic" Saudis, Qatar and Turkey with the "thimble" type of markings ... ISIS, Nusra and other barmaley with the local gopota "a la" "moderate opposition" ... They shoot at the Syrians as opponents, and they get zvizdyuley as "opposition" ...
      In vain our "led" to these negotiations, would have tumbled along with the Iranians, the CAA and Hezbola and further on to these bastards ...

    It is necessary to thresh manpower. Grind and grind, do not take prisoner. And all the losses of IS and others like them should be published as widely as possible. Then maybe they will think and the monetary "romance" will be lost.

    And all this is suspiciously close to the Turkish border. Barmalei drag reinforcements and weapons through it, don’t go to the grandmother, so until the turrets are sorted out, it will break out.

    Syria is in a difficult situation. Assad correctly assesses the situation when he says that the country was the victim of attacks by several countries.
    It must be understood that all the militants like IS, Nusra and the "moderate opposition" are tools created by external forces to partition Syria. And they do not abandon their intentions, only the methods of misleading the world community are changing - they hide too unsightly role in dividing the country and killing civilians.
    For peace to come to Syria, it is necessary for government forces to take control of the main areas: close the border with Turkey and liberate Aleppo, Dei al-Zor and Raqqa. A different alignment leads to the division of the country, which means banditry will flourish - this is exactly what the United States, Turkey and coalitions are seeking. What to expect from the USA? Maybe after years they recognize that there is no chance of a stable situation in the remnants of Syria, but the Syrian people will not be any easier.
    The tormented people of Syria want peace and support government forces — they need stability. The real opposition is those who today in the militia are fighting against all armed bandits. All the rest are mercenaries of external forces involved in the collapse of the country.
    The US specifically recognizes terrorist groups such as Jaysh al-Islam as "moderate" opposition. All the shelling of the population by these gangs is portrayed by the Western media as a war of government forces against the Syrian people. In reports of the shelling in Aleppo, it is reported that the shelling was carried out by government forces. If the United States recognizes all terrorists as such, then in Syria they simply will have nothing to do, that's why they prevent the consideration of the issue of these groups in the UN. The United States, Turkey and the coalitions are striving for one thing - the disintegration of Syria.

    Yes, some kind of garbage came up with the name of a truce am what nafig pancake can be a truce ??! It was necessary to hollow without stopping under any pretext of these rotten Ishilovites! And now, under the guise of a rotten truce, Assad must damn the Syrian armed forces in order not to violate God’s rotten truce!

      For Here you are outraged about the truce. Or maybe this is not a truce at all? What about a respite? Even Hitler, for whom all enslaved Europe worked, made major offenses once a year.
      1941-Leningrad and Moscow.
      1943-Kursk Bulge.
      Living people who need rest are at war. Plus, with this truce, Assad kills two birds with one stone.

    Yes, stop already out of place and out of place to remember the State Department. Their job is to howl at Russia and at all that goes against their plans. They get paid for it.

    I read smart and not very smart comments about the situation in Syria and I come to the conclusion that there will not be peace for a very long time. There are too many who want to profit from this misfortune of the Syrian people. Just like in Ukraine: a truce, and hostilities continue. It is a pity that Assad, that Novorossiya has too little strength to break the spine of this colossus of international pseudo-Islamic (in Syria) and fascist (in Ukraine) evil spirits.
    Himself, of course, should not be alarmed. They are pecking. Yes, and no loss can not do ...

    In no case should you stop. Any pauses now only play into the hands of ISIS - to regroup, gain a foothold, drag in weapons ... The enemy must be finished off while he is in a state of "grogg". Something I do not remember that the United States during the war with Iraq slowed down and worried about the civilian population. I generally keep quiet about Vietnam ...

    The situation in Syria and the prospects for the resumption of inter-Syrian negotiations in Geneva will be discussed on Monday in Moscow by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.

    “There is an agreement that de Mistura 3 will come to Moscow in May to discuss the outcome of the current round and further prospects for negotiations. He will be received by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, ”said Alexey Borodavkin, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation at the UN Office in Geneva, earlier.

    Last Wednesday in Geneva, the next round of inter-Syrian negotiations ended, lasting from April 13. Within two weeks, the UN special envoy failed to bring Damascus and the opposition to direct negotiations. The holding of this round was also overshadowed by the fact that the delegation of the Supreme Committee for Opposition Negotiations of Syria announced the suspension of its participation in the negotiations. The CPSU motivated this by the fact that Damascus continues the hostilities in Aleppo, the siege of settlements and does not provide humanitarian aid to people in need.
