Stronger than before

Abdelkader el-Hadji, chief rebel commander in Aleppo: 

“No. We are not weakening. We are stronger than before. Assad’s army isn’t very big, so they can’t fight in several areas at once. We have fronts at Arkoub, Saba Bahrat, old Aleppo, and at Salah Eddine. Since there aren’t many of them, when we started the fight in Arkoub they were still in Salah Eddine. That really shows their weakness and numbers. They are underequipped to cover several fronts, so we opened up like that on purpose, to weaken them more. They don’t know what to do. They are really weak.”
