In the meantime, the Syrian warplanes carried out over 60 combat sorties over the ISIL positions in the Northern and Eastern parts of the province and faced the terrorists a heavy death toll.
Also, the Syrian Army forces repulsed ISIL’s assault on their positions in Southern Aleppo and killed or injured a number of militants, a military source said.
“The ISIL militants in an attempt to prevail over army positions East of Khanaser attacked the region, however, the Syrian Army troops fended off the attack and killed several fighters,” the source said.
The source added that ISIL militants conducted an immense attack in Kanasser region, but the attack ended in another defeat for the militant group as the army forces destroyed several ISIL heavily-armed pick-up truck vehicles and defused some explosive devices left by the militants in the region.
