According to a military source, the Syrian Army has cleared the area from mines and placed artillery, tanks and armored personnel carriers in the area.
The next step for the army is to carry out attacks on the Ash-Shaar and Ad-Djazmati districts. The liberation of these strategic areas from the militants is only a matter of time, the respondent told Sputnik Arabic.
After retaking control of about two-thirds of militant-held east Aleppo over the past week, the forces advanced on the large residential district of Shaar. With the capture of Shaar, the army will hold nearly 70 percent of east Aleppo; four years after the militants first seized it and divided the ancient city.
The road leading to the airport and district of Sukh-ash-Shababi are seen in the video.
