“Khan Touman and its nearby farms are under the full control of the Syrian forces,” they said.
At least 81 Jaish al-Fateh militants were killed in the clashes in Khan Touman this morning. The Syrian army has also captured, at least, 10 militants.
“The Takfiri militant groups also withdrew forces from the Architecture Hill near Khan Touman after leaving behind scores of dead members,” the sources added.

Earlier reports said that the Syrian army and Hezbollah fighters, in a joint massive raid, pushed back the militant groups from more lands in the Southern part of Aleppo province after hours of fierce clashes.
“The militant groups withdrew forces from Qarassi village as a result of heavy offensives of the Syrian government forces,” the army said.
“Scores of the militants were killed or wounded in the attacks,” the army added.
“Qarassi is now under the full control of the army and its allies,” the army pointed out.
