ISIL Militants Withdraw from More Territories East of Aleppo
The Syrian army troops and the National Defense Forces pushed back the militant groups from Tal Maksour near Aleppo’s thermal power plant.
The ISIL left behind tens of the dead and wounded members and fled the battlefront.
The Syrian government forces also gained control over several checkpoints of the ISIL near the power plant.
The army and its allies are now fortifying their newly captured positions in the battlefield.
During the recent days, the pro-government forces have been making steady gains in Northwestern parts of Syria, being able to drive the militant groups back from more territories in the region. The Syrian fighter jets also have been targeting the militant groups’ positions in the Aleppo province in recent days.
On Saturday, the Syrian army engaged in heavy fighting with the militant groups in three neighborhoods of the Northern city of Aleppo and inflicted major losses on the terrorists.
“The militant groups’ strongholds in the neighborhoods of al-Sheikh Saeed, al-Salihin and Bani Zeid came under attacks of the Syrian army, which not only left several militants killed or wounded but destroyed their military hardware and ammunition,” the army said.
