Syrian Army, Popular Forces Gain More Lands North of Aleppo
“The militant groups operating along the road connecting Bashkoy and Ratyan retreated forces from the Soap Factory under the heavy attacks of the Syrian army troops and their allies,” the sources said.
“The militant groups suffered a heavy death toll and fled the battlefield in order to evade more casualties,” the sources added.
“The army also captured several militants in the battlefront,” they went on to say.
On Thursday, the Syrian army managed to cut off supply routes to the al-Nusra Front terrorists in the town of Mayer, North of Aleppo, at the bordering areas with Turkey.
The army forces also took captive 3 terrorists near Ma’arasta al-Khan, a small town in the Northwestern part of the newly-liberated Hardatnin and on the main road to al-Zahra and Nubl.
The developments happened after the army broke the terrorists’ four-year-long siege of Nubl and al-Zahra in the Northern Aleppo province on Wednesday afternoon.
The siege of the strategic towns was removed after four years in an army offensive from the Eastern side of the two towns, while other units of the Syrian army also managed to purge terrorists from 80 percent of the village of Ma’arasta al-Khan.
