"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Detailed Look at Clashes for Strategic Ramouseh Roundabout in Aleppo City- South Front

On August 11, the Syrian army and loyal militias launched an operation in order to take control of Jaish al-Fatah’s corridor to eastern Aleppo. The Ramouseh Roundabout is one of the most important areas that pro-government forces need to seize to do this.
Jaish al-Fatah can not supply its allied militants in eastern Aleppo because the group does not controll this strategic roundabout and the Ramouseh Garage. The road on Khan Touman that had been used by the group for some photo and video evidences of the “opened” corridor is on the scene of fighting with the Syrian government forces. This is why even pro-militant sources confirm that the “opposition” is not able to supply eastern Aleppo on a constant basis. Furthermore, they were not able to push the pro-government forces from the controlled areas in the 1070 Apartment Project, the 3000 Apartment Project and the Cement Plant. Control of these areas allows the Syrian artillery to shell militant convoys heading to eastern Aleppo.
