US-Backed Terrorists Sustain Heavy Losses in Syrian Army Attacks in Aleppo
Hundreds of the terrorists known as Soqour al-Jabal (Falcons of the Mountain) who have recently been trained by the US special forces in Turkey were dispatched to al-Malaah region to fight alongside Al-Nusra Front terrorists against the Syrian army.
The ‘Falcon of Mountain’ terrorists sustained heavy losses and several of their senior commanders were killed during the Syrian army and resistance forces’ attacks on Saturday night.
Earlier on Sunday, battlefield sources in Syria refuted the terrorists’ claims about advancing in Northern Aleppo, and underlined the government forces’ full control over the newly-liberated territories in the province.
“The Syrian soldiers and their popular allies fended off large-scale offensive of the al-Nusra Front and Nouralddeen al-Zinki terrorists on the government forces’ stronghold in the Southern farms of al-Malaah region and the Northern side of Castillo highway, the only supply line to the terrorist-held districts of Aleppo city,” the sources said.
“The terrorist groups stormed the government positions by several bomb-laden suicide vehicles, but the Syrian soldiers targeted and detonated them before reaching the army’s defense lines,” they added.
“Hundreds of terrorists, then, stormed the army’s positions but their attacks were repelled by the army men and popular forces,” the sources said.
“The militant groups left behind dozens of their dead and wounded members and fled the battlefield without any gain.”
“Al-Malaah region is under full control of the Syrian military forces, and the Castillo highway is still closed and under full fire control of the army,” they underlined.
Reports said earlier on Sunday that the Syrian Army troops and popular forces continued to advance in territories near the terrorist groups’ main supply line in Northern Aleppo, taking full control over several building blocks and industrial sites.
The Syrian pro-government forces beat back the militant groups from al-Thawra and al-Tabeq firms and a number of factories and business centers in al-Khalidiyeh district, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.
