Forces loyal to the Assad regime claimed the capture of eastern Aleppo’s Qadi Askar neighborhood while gaining ground in the al-Sha’ar area on December 6 amid the ongoing battle for the city, of which the regime claims to control 73 percent.

In the battle over Qadi Askar, pro-regime forces released video purporting to show the capture of three Syrian rebel members of Ahrar al-Sham. Two of the men are quickly interviewed for their names and the areas where they were captured, namely the al-Firdaus and al-Sukkari neighborhoods; however, Ahrar al-Sham have yet to issue a statement regarding the captured rebels.

Furthermore, when they appear to be answering questions, they exchange glances with the off-screen interviewer, suggesting that the answers may appear to be forced and lack veracity.
