Fighters from the former Al-Nusra Front -- renamed Fateh al-Sham Front after breaking from Al-Qaeda -- drive a tank as they seized key positions south of Aleppo on August 6, 2016 in a major offensive to break the government siege of the city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. 

Fateh al-Sham Front announced having captured two military academies and a third military position.
