There are conflicting reports , but it could be due to the timing of the information.
The situation change withing the hour or so . Sidorenko1 for example reported near 1 hours ago
the Syrian army pushed back the terrorist from Artillery and the other place .
Ivan Sidorenko @IvanSidorenko1 44m44 minutes ago
#Syria #Syr #Aleppo #SouthernAleppo Report from last hour #SAA fully recaptured Artillery college & 80% of Arming
But it remain to be seen when that report was passed to Sidorenko if 8 hour ago or about the
time he reported it. But i agree the situation is really bad because it can change quickly at any time,if any side sends more forces, but not hopeless for Syria because still Russian airforce can help. real Precision strikes can target positions of the terrorist very close to Syrian army.
Leith information is usually correct. his problem is however the idiot ignores , the fact
that battle lines can change withing a hour and switch hands several times. So the reports
that Syrian army recaptured most of artillery can be true and is not like he made it too look
that "it never happened." So his foolishness is what makes many times inaccurate his reports.
In the battle of LAtakia for example ,in kinsibba ,which ultimately Syrian army lost in the end. The town switched hands 5 times in just 3 days. so it was a skirmish.
So whatever thing is reported now ,in favor of any side, it could totally change in 2 hours or 3.
What is clear however is that Even if terrorist lift the siege ,they will need heavy man power to really push the Syrian army away of the opened gates. Because to really LIFT the siege the gate needs to be very wide and not withing range of Syrian army direct fire that is 1-3km distance at least. it will not be safe to travel over that gate. as it was not safe to travel over castillo road when they were at same distance of closing the gate. Trucks cannot travel in and out ,with such tight envelope. So the siege will continue until there is at least 5km gate opened. and it will not be safe to travel if Syrian army have lots of precision artillery withing 10km -15km near with scouts with clear view of the gate.This operation could turn to be very decisive for any side ,because terrorist are using all they have ,and losing too many soldiers for every inch territory taken. and Syrian army casualties have to be high too. probably the most important battle of the entire conflict. If rebels are pushed back , they not only lose the territory gained ,but also allow Syrian army to enter in Aleppo and liberate it using the same gate opened by the terrorist.
