Syrian Jets Target Terrorists Planning to Join Aleppo Battle against Gov’t Forces
“The Jeish al-Fatah terrorists had just arrived in Idlib from Darayya after reaching an agreement with the Syrian government to leave town in the Damascus countryside and were ordered to join other terrorists in the Southern Aleppo,” a battlefield source told FNA on Monday.
The source noted that after receiving relevant intelligence tips, the Syrian fighter jets launched precision strikes on the shelters and gathering points of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists.
There is yet no report on the precise number of terrorists’ casualties, but some sources announced that at least 20 terrorists were killed and tens of others were wounded in the Syrian airstrike.
The Jeish al-Fatah terrorists had been stationed in the Syrian army officers’ housing complexes which are under the terrorists’ control in Idlib now.
On Friday, the militant groups inside Darayya formally agreed to surrender the town after negotiating with a Syrian government delegation.
Under the terms of surrender, the Syrian government agreed to transport the remaining militants from Liwa Shohada al-Islam and civilians to their requested destinations.
Darayya’s civilians were transferred to the opposition-held Qudsiya District, which is located just West of Damascus City.
The government agreed to provide those civilians humanitarian aid and medical assistance, which was administrated by UN groups.
The militants were then transported by government buses to Jeish al-Fatah’s frontlines in Idlib province.
A long convoy of buses carrying terrorist groups’ members and their families left the city of Darayya in Western Ghouta heading towards Idlib on Sunday.
Al-Mayadeen reported that terrorist groups’ members in Darayya were totally around 1,000 out of which 700 militants called for evacuation from the town.
With the last convoy of terrorists’ family members, who left Darayya, the total number of militants’ families in Darayya did not surpass 2,000 disclosing that the claims that over 4,000 family members of terrorists were trapped in Darayya were shier lies.
On Monday, informed local sources disclosed that different terrorist groups in the Eastern part of the city of Aleppo have been demoralized as their comrades have left them alone to join the battle in Jarabalus along the border with Turkey.
“The al-Shamiyeh Front terrorists are very discontent with their commanders for dispatching a large number of their militants to Jarabalus at Turkey’s request,” the Arabic-language media quoted an unnamed local source as saying.
The source reiterated that the terrorists in Eastern Aleppo city have completely lost their morale because Jeish al-Fatah terrorists have failed to open a supply line for them through al-Ramousiyeh and refrained from sending aid to them via the Castillo Road which is under the Syrian army control.
Earlier on Monday, dissident media sources in Raqqa disclosed that the ISIL has acknowledged that it has lost a lot of its terrorists in Aleppo province, specially in Manbij and al-Rai regions.
“The Raqqa-based families of the ISIL terrorists killed in the battles over control of Manbij and al-Rai have been informed by the terrorist group that the ISIL could not retrieve their dead bodies from the battle zones,” the Arabic-language media outlets quoted a dissident media source in Raqqa as saying.
The source noted that ISIL’s move has been unprecedented because the ISIL usually buries the bodies of its dead militants at the presence of their families, and said, “But this time the ISIL announced that it could not bring back the dead bodies and that it is considering exchange of dead bodies with the rival militant groups.”
