At the moment, severe fighting has been going on right away in several blocks and near some of the important strategic strongholds including in the market area and the gas station.
It is reported that the SAA is pressing the militants and trying to squeeze them out. When shelling the militants’ positions, large-caliber machine guns, grenade launchers and mortars are being used. The fire controllers (gunnery spotters) inform the army on the damage and on the clarified coordinates for the next strike using walkies-talkies.
