The Syrian Army claims it has killed 2,000 Jeish al-Fatah terrorist fighters in the southern and southwest parts of Aleppo over the last ten days.

Jeish al-Fatah (The Army of Conquest) is an alliance of multiple Sunni Islamist Syrian rebel factions, including those affiliated with Al-Qaeda, that has been participating in the Syrian civil war since it was founded in March 2015.

Several commanders within the ranks of the Syrian and Hezbollah said the Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in Aleppo are both receiving logistical aid and intelligence support from the western states, especially the US warships deployed in the Mediterranean Sea, according to Al-Alam News.

“The western countries’ warships are providing the terrorists with information and intel about the resistance forces’ moves round the clock and they (the militants) continue their operations with the help of the very same information,” sources in resistance forces said on Monday, Al-Alam reports.

“The Jeish al-Fatah members seek to break the siege of their comrades in Aleppo while the Hezbollah resistance forces are showing strong resistance against them with the least possibilities,” a member of the resistance forces said.

Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based Shia terrorist group that advocates Shia empowerment globally, has been on the U.S. Department of State’s list of foreign terrorist groups since 1997.  In May 2013, Hizballah leader, Hasan Nasrallah, announced that Hizballah was supporting Bashar al-Asad’s regime by sending fighters to Syria, including Iraqi Shia militias, according to the National Counterterrorism Center.

It is no secret that the CIA has been arming Syrian rebels to fight Assad’s forces with approval from President Obama, but the CIA supposed tracking of these weapons has come into question.

Almost three years ago the U.S. State Department said it began shipping traceable light weapons and other munitions to Syria. Among these shipments, funneled to the various brigades of the Free Syrian Army and other “moderate groups” through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Turkey were TOW anti-tank missiles.

These CIA-vetted “moderate groups” have used these TOW missiles, that he CIA calls “highly traceable,” in hundreds of attacks across Syria.  One of the reasons for the initial delay of the shipments back in 2013 came from officials’ fears that any assistance could wind up in the hands of jihadists.

These fears have likely come to fruition as the Islamic State and Jeish al-Fatah obtaining many of these weapons has become a reality.  Last week, the Syrian Army found a weapons cache full of U.S. manufactured weapons -including at least one TOW missile system- in Aleppo.

Two days ago, Jeish al-Fatah, mostly comprised of Al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusrah Front, posted a video of their rebels firing an American-made anti-tank TOW missile at Assad’s forces during fighting in Aleppo.

According to Al-Alam, the US-backed Jeish al-Fatah coalition of 22 terrorist groups failed to break the siege but were able to penetrate the government lineslosing over 800 fighters on the eastern front and 1200 in the south over the past ten days.

The Lebanese Shia Hezbollah movement and the Syrian government have mobilized more than 3,000 troops and militia fighters in an attempt to recapture the areas where the Jeish al-Fatah terrorists made their breakthrough, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).  The “government forces” are comprised of Syrian , Lebanese Hezbollah resistance forces, Iraqi resistance movements including al Nujaba, Iranian advisers (IRGC and ), according to FNA.
