Syria in Last 24 Hours: Army Destroys Takfiri Terrorists’ Hideouts in Idlib, Hama
The Syrian warplanes hit the concentration centers of the terrorists in Mhambel, al-Latamneh, al-Mansoura and Skik in Idlib and Hama.
Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more injured in fierce clashes with the Takfiri terrorists.
Also in the past 24 hours, the ISIL positions in Eastern Aleppo countryside came under blitzkrieg by the Syria air force.
The bombings were staged in 30 sorties of flights over the militant-held regions near Kuweires Military Airport.
Reports from Aleppo said the Syrian fighter jets conducted over 30 airstrikes on ISIL positions in Deir Hafer Plains.
Sources said similar intense bombings of ISIL-held areas in Eastern Aleppo have been underway for the last several days, but the Thursday air offensives “proved extremely effective for the Syrian Army as they helped the ground troops advance towards the besieged Kuweires Military Airport”.
Local sources told FNA that large groups of terrorists were killed on Thursday and a major part of the military hardware, including vehicles and artilleries, that was used by the terrorist group to storm the Kuweires Military Airport was destroyed in the large-scale air offensives.
Elsewhere, the Syrian army troops killed and injured scores of the foreign-backed Takfiri militants in the Southern Province of Daraa.
The army targeted concentration centers of terrorists in Samlin village and the cities of Inkhel and Jassem in the Northwestern countryside of Daraa, killing scores of terrorists and destroying their weapons and equipment.
The army also targeted positions of terrorists from the so-called “Saif al-Sham Brigades” in Atman town, 4km North of Daraa city, leaving a group of them dead.
Meanwhile, the terrorist groups acknowledged on their social media pages the death of a number of their members, including the leader of the so-called “Osama Bin Zaid Brigade”, Rateb Anwar al-Hamid.
Also, some 70 wanted Takfiri militants surrendered to the Syrian authorities on Thursday to be pardoned as the army continues to advance against the terrorists.
They are from Damascus and its countryside, Homs, Daraa and Idlib.
On Sept 26, 36 wanted militants also surrendered to the competent authorities in Hama.
Hundreds of gunmen have been laying down their weapons and turning themselves in to authorities in areas across the country.
This number seems to be on the rise as the army has been making steady gains in the battlefield against the terrorist groups, recapturing an increasing number of regions, including strategic sites, which helped cut off many of the militants’ supply routes and forced them to surrender or run away.
Elsewhere, the Syrian army backed by the popular defense groups destroyed hideouts and vehicles of al-Nusra Front and other Takfiri terrorist groups in the Northern countryside of Quneitra.
The army targeted the Takfiris’ positions in military operations on Wednesday night and Thursday.
A group of terrorists were killed and injured in the military operations against positions of al-Nusra Front and other terrorist groups in the villages of Jibbata al-Khashab and Tranjeh. One of the militants’ ammunition depots was also destroyed.
Meanwhile, the army destroyed three heavy machinegun-equipped vehicles belonging to al-Nusra terrorists, and killed all terrorists onboard in a military operation to the East of Tranjeh village.
The terrorist groups acknowledged on their social media pages that a number of their members were killed, including terrorist Shadi Yousef Sharaf.
