The Syrian Army, supported by the country’s Air Force, has attacked Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) strongholds in northern Syria’s Aleppo province, killing dozens of terrorists, according to FNA.
Sources said that the Syrian troops launched a number of offensives on Daesh-held positions in the towns of Al-Bab, Qabasin, and Beza on Wednesday.
Additional militant strongholds were also reportedly destroyed by Syrian fighter jets in Handarat and Hraytan north of the city of Aleppo; the terrorists suffered heavy losses in the airstrikes.
Dozens of militants were killed or wounded after their attempts to prevail over the defensive lines of Syrian Army positions in Tal al-Madhafah in the southern part of Handarat were dashed by the government forces.
