#SRO - This a map, made with few time (as working on others rebellion groups studies) showing how the #FSA led by Liwa al-Tawhid made its push from #Azaz, #Mare and #Bab toward #Aleppo between July 21 and July 30 (1).
#SRO - As shown, #Assad regime lines were prepared to resist in strategic points : Nubl and Zahra, Menagh (that resisted), Aleppo prison and Taanah air defense battalion. But the main mistake was to lave Sheikh Najjar without any defenselines (2).
#SRO - The map is also showing how strong was #Assad regime outside #Aleppo in its southern, eastern and western countrysides. They fell under rebellion control only between September 2012 and July 2013. The first to fall was the east, second was south and lastwas south (END).
ADD. : remember Taanah defense battalion (E-#Aleppo countryside) is falling only in autumn 2012, months after E-#Aleppo city. Remember also Police academy and areas around (W-#Aleppo countryside) are falling in March 2013...
---> The Wikipedia map for Aleppo situation in September 2012 is completely a joke... Many mistakes (showing lack of work and search) : they're showing Aleppo prison and Kindi besieged ! Completely false : both were besieged in end of April 2013 !
---> Another mistake : they're showing Afrin pocket already cut from regime held areas : false. Regime was still linked from Layramoun to Nubbl in september 2012 ! And regime was holding the main road between Menagh and Nubbl : battalion 135 is falling only in january 2013 !
---> This is showing you the problem of Internet : when amateurs are making "facts" on a famous encyclopedia (Wikipedia) turning to be completely untrue... when professionals aren't anymore considered... Long live the web...
