Syrian Army Destroys Al-Nusra Front’s Military Positions in Aleppo Province
Tens of militants were killed and dozens more were injured in the Syrian troops’ attacks.
The army further continued its advances in the areas near the town of Bashkoy on Tuesday.
Earlier today, the Syrian army announced that its troops and their popular allies have pushed the militant groups back from the nearby hills of the town of Ratyan and have brought the town under their full fire-control.
The Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) drove the militant groups back from the surrounding areas of Ratyan in the Eastern part of al-Zahra and gained full fire control over the town.
Scores of the militants were killed or wounded in the Syrian government forces’ operation near Ratyan.
The Syrian army and popular forces are rapidly advancing in Ratyan region and some of their units have reportedly entered the town.
In the meantime, the Syrian fighter jets have pounded the militant groups’ defense lines and supplying routes in Andan, al-Malaah and Ratyan, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.
The Syrian Air Forces operations carried out several combat sorties over the militant groups’ strongholds in al-Tamoura and near Azaz-Aleppo highway and targeted them heavily, which forced the militant groups to pull back forces from the battlefield to evade more casualties and caused some of the militant units to ask for immediate assistance of other terrorists.
Reports said earlier today that the Syrian army and its popular allies have significantly advanced against the militant groups in the Northern part of Aleppo province in the last two days and after capturing of three strategic villages are now pushing North towards the besieged towns of Nubl and al-Zahra.
The Syrian army troops, the NDF, Kata’eb Hezbollah, (Iraqi paramilitary) and Harakat al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), that launched a joint operation in the Aleppo province’s Northern battlefield on Monday morning, have thus far captured the villages of Hardatnin, Doweir al-Zaytoun and Tal Jabin North of Bashkoy and have now deployed their forces only four kilometers from the entrances of Nubl and al-Zahra.
The Syrian pro-government forces have at least advanced against the militant groups over three kilometers and have decreased their distance to the Nubl and al-Zahra from seven kilometers to four kilometers.
