Syrian Forces, Hezbollah Advancing against ISIL Terrorists East of Aleppo
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, sources said Wednesday.
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.
Earlier reports said today that the Syrian army launched an attack on ISIL defensive positions along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa highway, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorists.
The Syrian forces launched a powerful assault on ISIL defensive positions along the highway, targeting the Siyasko Chemical Factory’s Western perimeter.
Following a series of fierce clashes with militants at the Eastern perimeter of the Siyasko Chemical Factory, the Syrian forces and its allies regained full control over the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway entrance to this facility.
