Syrian Army Units Demolish ISIS, Al-Nusra Front Positions in Aleppo
The terrorist groups left behind tens of the dead and wounded members and fled their positions near Akthar al-Bazar Institute towards Jam’iyat al-Zahra axis.
The institute and its surroundings are under the full control of the Syrian soldiers and their allies from Hezbollah.
Earlier reports said that Syrian soldiers and Hezbollah fighters, backed up by the country’s fighter jets and Russian artillery units, repelled the terrorist groups’ offensives and in a rapid coordinated counterattack stormed the militants’ positions and drove them back from the districts of Aleppo.
At least 70 members of the terrorist groups of al-Nusra Front, Nouriddeen al-Zinki movement and Jeish al-Muhajireen Wal Ansar were killed and many more were wounded in their failed attacks on the government forces’ strongholds across Aleppo’s Northern and Northwestern districts.
The terrorists withdrew forces from Al-Zahra Association Quarter, the Air Force Intelligence (AFI) building, the Great Prophet Mosque and al-Zahra-Lairamoun axis, under the heavy fire, bombardments and attacks of the Syrian government forces, FNA reported.
