Syrian Army Takes Back Al-Safeira in Aleppo Countryside from Militants
The army said that the militants retreated from al-Safeira and the area is now under full control of the country’s soldiers.
The army further added that the militant groups suffered heavy death toll in al-Safeira.
On Monday, a commander of Syria’s National Defense Forces elaborated on the objectives of the large-scale army operations in Aleppo, and explained the latest gains made by pro-government forces in the strategically important province, including the latest conditions of the besieged Kuweires military airbase.
The Syrian army backed by the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance and Iraq’s resistance forces launched massive military operations in Aleppo province, specially in its Southwest, concurrent with the army’s new operations in Hama and Lattakia provinces.
“The goal of these operations is to purge these regions of terrorists and continue advances towards the Lattakia province; if these operations succeed, the route connecting the terrorist groups in Aleppo to Lattakia and Idlib provinces will be cut off and supply of aids to them through the Turkish border will grow fully impossible,” the Syrian field commander, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for security reasons, told FNA.
Also according to the commander, if the mop-up operations in Southwest Aleppo, Northern Hama and Idlib ends with success, security will be established on the main route linking Central Syria, or the Damascus province, to the Northern parts of the country, or Aleppo, and accordingly dispatch of equipment and troops will be expedited, while terrorists in Eastern and Western Syria will be fully disconnected.
