The Aleppo offensive (October – November 2016) refers to a military operation launched on the western outskirts of Aleppo at the end of October 2016 by rebel forces in Syria, against the Syrian government forces and its allies. The aim of the offensive was to establish a new supply line into Aleppo city, after an Army-initiated summer campaign had cut off all rebel access to Aleppo.
By 31 October, the rebel offensive had slowed due to heavy government resistance and pro-government forces had taken the initiative. Three days into the offensive, the rebels were in control of the Minyan Industrial district, most of the Dahiyat Al-Assad district and half of the Minyan residential district. The frontline had stabilized.
On 3 November, the rebels launched the second phase of their offensive against Army positions in the western part of the New Aleppo district and at the Minyan district, in an attempt to revitalize the operation since it had made little progress after the first day. They managed to advance and capture several positions. The rebels also assaulted the 3000 Housing Project and the Al-Assad Military Academy. During the clashes, another rebel tank was destroyed, as well as two Army anti-tank positions. Still, the rebels were not able to break into New Aleppo and their assault was repelled.
On 6 November, Army special forces and Hezbollah militiamen launched a counter-attack on the southwestern edge of Aleppo, advancing in the area of Al-Mutha hill and the 1070 Housing Project. The next day, government forces broke through the rebel’s first line of defense on Tal Rakhem hill, making advances, while also seizing six buildings in the 1070 Housing Project. Later that day, government forces further advanced in the area and managed to impose fire control over the nearby al-Hikmah school.
On 8 November, government troops fully captured the 1070 Housing Project, as well as three nearby hills. The rebels additionally withdrew from al-Hikmah school, so to regroup at the Rashiddeen 5 Suburb, but the Army had not yet reached the school due to heavy rebel shelling. Later, government troops launched a large assault inside the Dahiyat Al-Assad and Minyan districts, recapturing Minyan and reportedly advancing inside Dahiyat Al-Assad. That night, the rebels managed to recapture the western half of Minyan. The next day, government troops seized the strategic Hikmah school and secured the Hikmah area, while they made their first push towards the Rashiddeen 5 and Aqrab districts in southwest Aleppo. Later, government troops made their first assault against the Rashiddeen 5 and Aqrab districts in soutmy took control of a large part of Dahiyat Al-Assad.
