Militants Sustain Heavy Losses in Syrian Air Attacks across Aleppo Province
The Syrian Air Force continued pounding the militants’ positions in different regions near the Northern city of Aleppo, provincial sources said on Wednesday.
The Takfiri terrorists’ strongholds near Tal al-Bakkara, Dulama, Daret Ezza and Anjara came under heavy bombardments of the Syrian warplanes, which left scores of the terrorist dead or wounded and inflicted heavy damage on their military hardware, the sources said.
Earlier reports said today that the Syrian Army and its allies have significantly advanced against the ISIL militants in the Eastern part of Aleppo province and have won back the important Humaymah hilltop.
The sources said that the Syria army, the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters continued their joint anti-terrorism operation near the town of Humaymah al-Kabeera, and seized control over the strategic Tal Humaymah after fierce clashes with the Takfiri terrorists.
The sources further added that after recapturing of Tal Humaymah, the pro-government forces are now in a good position to strike the Western sector of the town that is currently under the control of the ISIL.
Humaymah al-Kabeera is strategically located to the East of the Kuweires Military Airport and to the West of the ISIL stronghold of Deir Hafer.
The Aleppo-Raqqa highway is passing through the middle of Humaymah al-Kabeera town.
