Syrian Army Close to Seize Back Kuweires Airbase
Battlefield sources said that the Syrian armed forces, backed by the Russian warplanes, are pushing back the Takfiri terrorists from areas adjacent to the Kuweires military airport in Aleppo province.
The Syrian army troops advanced towards Kuweires airbase, and are now only less than 6 kilometers away from the besieged airport.
The march towards the strategic airbase started on Saturday. Following a series of battles, sources said yesterday that “the army had inflicted heavy casualty on the militants in areas near the Kuweires airport, killed tens of the terrorists and wounded dozens more”.
The Russian warplanes launched heavy airstrikes on ISIL positions in Al-Jaboul village to open the path for the Syrian ground forces to win back the village.
The Syrian troops killed dozens of the militants and took full control of the village which is close to the Koweires military airbase.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists have besieged the Koweires airport for over 2.5 years now, but the airport itself is under the Syrian army’s control.
The Syrian army’s helicopters supply foodstuff and other needs to the Syrian troops defending the airport.
