Syria: Gov’t Forces Capture more Lands South of Aleppo
The Syrian soldiers and their Iraqi and Lebanese allies engaged in tough battle with the terrorists of Jeish al-Fatah and pushed them back from the small town of al-Qaraseneh, which ended in the killing of at least 40 terrorists and wounding of many more.
The pro-government forces then started fortifying their positions in the town.
In the meantime, the Syrian army repelled the terrorist groups’ attack to capture the town al-Khalseh and forced them to pull their forces back from the battlefield under the army’s heavy fire.
The Syrian army and its allies also launched joint offensives to capture al-Qarasi from Jeish al-Fatah.
