ISIL on the Run: Syrian Army Closes in on Aleppo
The Syrian army on Saturday captured territory from ISIL East of Aleppo including a stretch of highway leading to the Takfiri terrorists’ main stronghold of Raqqa.
The areas captured as part of the Syrian army’s advance on the militants’ positions with support from Russian airstrikes are East of the Kuweires airbase seized from ISIL control earlier this month.
According to latest report, the army captured new villages and large swathes of farmland, seizing tunnels and fortifications built by the Takfiri terrorist groups.
Earlier in November, the Syrian army lifted the siege of the Kweiris military airbase. The Kweiris airbase had been under ISIL siege for more than two years until the government forces and Hezbullah forces with Russian air support advanced into the area and cleared it of Takfiri terrorists, leaving a large number of them dead and wounded.
