West Aleppo situation (26 Feb 2016)

On Feb 26, 2016, loyalist forces launched a new offensive toward Shaykh Aqil and Qabtan al Jabal. As the village of Bashmra is situated South of the frontline is controlled by YPG/SDF, there was probably an agreement for government forces to pass through and attack the rebels.

Shaykh Aqil was confirmed captured by the loyalists; however, the rebels (Nur al-Din Zinki) claimed to have regained control of the village hours later.

This attack is happening hours before the theorical implementation of a global cease-fire in Syria.
