Syrian freedom fighters have been pushed out of a strategic district in the commercial capital of Aleppo, but fighting has continued in other parts of the city.
Clashes continued in parts of Salaheddin district in Aleppo on Friday, after most left under heavy bombing and advancing Alawite troops. The Assad regime has at least 80 Russian tanks stationed in various parts of Aleppo. The cowardly Alawite military appeared reluctant to engage in close combat, preferring to use Russian helicopters and fighter jets.
The Alawite army's formidable weaponry was offset by faltering morale.
At the 10th street front line, freedom fighters are face-to-face with the Alawite army and can hear them make orders on their radios. The fighters hear their commanders give orders to soldiers to advance and they keep urging them to, but the soldiers don't and are hesitant.
