Syrian Army, Allies Capture Main Supply Route Connecting Hama to Aleppo
“The Syrian government forces pushed the ISIL militants back from their last positions along the strategic road connecting Ithriya in Hama province to Khanaser in Aleppo province,” the army said.
“The ISIL left behind scores of the dead or wounded members and fled the battlefield to find a safer shelter,” the army added.
“The engineering units of the army have launched to defuse roadside bombs planted by the terrorists to reopen the road as soon as possible,” the army went on to say.
Earlier reports said that at least 14 militants were killed and scores more were wounded in the Syrian Army troops’ heavy offensive against the ISIL terrorists in the Southeastern parts of Aleppo province.
The Syrian army and its popular allies continued to hunt the members of the ISIL terrorist group in the Southern side of the town of Khanaser, which claimed the lives of many militants and inflicted major damage on their military hardware.
