The anti Assad forces have deemed this to be the "Mother of all battles"....the fight for Aleppo has now officially started....OPSEC which the rebels have been practicing well lately will keep the initial reports flowing in slowly.....so as to now give Russian and Assad target info....

Zero Hour for #Aleppo
The battle to break the siege started 2 h ago
It's the mother of all battles that will decide the destiny of the city


Yes, civilians will die in the all-out rebel assault.
But the world left rebels no other option by ignoring 275.000 besieged civilians.

This is the UN Syria needs. A very brave and principled address from @UNReliefChief to Security Council last night

Unprecedented on Syria, O'Brien calls on UNSC members with “operational military assets” to stop bombs on civilians.

@UNReliefChief: “civilians are being bombed by Syrian and Russian forces, and if they survive that, they will starve tomorrow” #Aleppo

@UNReliefChief: only 11 ambulances left in all of eastern Aleppo

.@UNReliefChief: "Blankets are in such short supply that body bags are being used for warmth instead"

.@UNReliefChef: “This litany of horror must surely shake your moral conscience as it does around the world.”

First confirmed attack axis on al-Assad suburb west Aleppo, rebels shelling Assad and IRGC positions and detonated a remote VBIED minutes ago
2nd remote VBIED was just detonated in Assad/IRGC positions west Aleppo, allegedly photo of the blast

Syrian rebels launch offensive to break #AleppoSiege. 10s of Grad rockets targeting Hemeimeem airbase in Latakia & Nayrab airbase in Aleppo


Big convoys driving through Idlib province. 4 of my friends from Azaz left to Aleppo now #Syria #حلب

Another attack axis could be through minyan industrial (carton factory) area west Aleppo according to this
http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36...1047&z=15&m=b#

APPEARS the anti Assad forces are using the good old fashion Arab tactic of "swarm attacks"....multiple attacks...multiple directions in a 360 degree arch...multiple intensity...ALL launched at just about the same time.....to confuse and conceal the real attack axis intentions....

There are as well now reports coming in of follow on anti Assad forces now on the move to backup the attacking forces.....

Should be noted all other fighting fronts are still maintaining pressure on the regime forces so they cannot be pulled off and sent to Aleppo...without risking Assad regime loses of those fronts.

CrowBat....is this accurate???

Regime conscripts are only getting ~15-20 days of training. They are also often lied to about objectives.


Aleppo: #FSA rebels & Turkish army have killed 20 #YPG militias in Northern #Aleppo since Wednesday. 5 were buried in #Afrin today.

Aleppo: All of the 20 #YPG militias were killed during failed attacks on #FSA rebel positions.

Sputnik forgets to remove the AFP description from the picture of a Russian/Syrian bombing on an article on another bombing blamed on rebels

Idlib school
Same #Russian propaganda as with the @UN convoy.
"No damage", but if there is, the was the #US...
https://ria.ru/syria/20161027/1480163387.html#

BUT WAIT...it was those flying carpets from IS that we shipped in the S300/400s to counter....they did it!!!!!

BUT WAIT.....NOW even Reuters is stating the exact same Sputnik article blaming the rebels for bombing their own school....AND that my friends is exactly WHY western MSM no longer really is "fair and balanced" if they follow and repeat Russian propaganda..totally none fact checked ..

Syrian rebels pray before starting the mother of all battles to liberate #Aleppo along with last preparations prior to attacking.


News
Ahrar al-Sham announces its participation in the offensive to break the siege of #Aleppo.
"All western suburbs" are being attacked.


It begins.
It's clear, rebels will use all weapons, available.
It's also clear, Salafists and jihadists will lead the fight.
Blame yourself, world.

IMPORTANT: #SDF searching civilians mobiles and looking in their Apps specially chat Apps & FB in #Manbij.

This act is the same what #Daesh used to do in #Manbij too.

IMPORTANT: Internet services totally stopped today in West side of #Aleppo (under #Assad control)

Aleppo: Turkish Army senior official:"#Afrin and #Manbij will be liberated from #YPG. Nothing can stop the Turkish Army on this path."

With every new PKK attack on Turkish security forces and population, with every Afrin YPG attack on FSA positions and towns and with every US attempt to delay them...JUST reinforces Erdogan and the TAF believe in this....

Blunt warning to the US and Russia to stay out of Turkish affairs....

Syria #Aleppo Kurdish #YPG try to seize Tuways from #FSA after last took it from #IS
http://wikimapia.org/#lang=de&lat=36...0558&z=14&m=b#

WHY does not the West MSM, CENTCOM, DoD, Obama and EU stop asking the Turks to stop attacking YPG.....WHY not ask the Y to stop their attacks on FSA and focus only on IS....?????

YPG equals PKK end of story but that is not what the West thinks they are????
