Publication time: 7 August 2013, 20:51

On 27 Ramadan 1434 (August 5, 2013), troops of the Northern Directorate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham began a decisive attack on the positions of Assadites, anchored on the territory of an important strategic facility - airport Minnag near Aleppo.

 

This stronghold of the Assadites has been besieged by Mujahideen, according to updated data, for over 8 months. Since three months ago, the siege has been headed by Mujahideen from the Army of Emigrants of Supporters in coordination with other units of Syrian Mujahideen.

 

Recently, Emir of the Army of Emigrants of Supporters, Omar al-Chechen, was appointed to the post of the commander of the Northern Directorate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham. Most forces of the Mujahideen in northern Syria came under his command.

Early in the morning at dawn on the 27th of Ramadan, the Mujahideen went to the final assault. The first strike was a success. The assault group drove the Assadites from their key positions in the buildings of military dormitories and the radar tower.

 

The Assadites retreated to the outskirts of the airport. After a short break, the Mujahideen attacked again on the evening of the 27th of Ramadan.

 

"They were trying to dig trenches for heavy equipment to take the positions, but at that moment we attacked them", the Mujahideen website FiSyria quotes Abu Ibrahim, one of the emirs of the assault group.

 

The Assadites did not withstand the attack. A part of enemy elements fled in the direction of Shiite villages. Their commanders took advantage of two tank, remaining at their disposal, to break out from the besieged airport.

 

During the assault, 4 Mujahideen martyred, including 2 from Dagestan. Later, a cameraman of the FiSyria, who was also from Dagestan, died from his injuries.

 

At the time when the airport was attacked, another major operation was carried in the area of ​​Kafr Hamra. The Mujahideen seized a high-rise building and actually cut off the enemy, entrenched in concrete houses on the hill, from their support lines.

 

15 Assadites and Shiite Hezbollah thugs were killed in action. Among the Mujahideen, there were 5 martyrs (Insha'Allah), including 4 Mujahideen from Chechnya, and 8 wounded.

 

The sources say that during more than 8 months of fighting over the airport Minnag, more than 300 Mujahideen martyred (Insha'Allah).

 

Minnag was the last stronghold of Assadites on the border with Turkey. Now the whole territory north of Aleppo is under the control of the Mujahideen.
