Syrian Gov’t Forces Capture More Hills, Military Sites, Regions South of Aleppo City
Syrian government forces, using heavy weapons, inflicted major losses and casualties on Jeish al-Islam militants and beat them back form al-Maqale’a hill, the anti-aircraft defense battalion, the regions of al-Baradat and al-Zeiwat and the small but key town of al-Moshrefeh.
The Jeish al-Fatah terrorists suffered a heavy death toll and fled the battlefield to evade more casualties, reports said.
Reports said earlier today that positions and supply routes of Jeish al-Fatah in Southern Aleppo and those of Fatah al-Sham (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in Northern Aleppo came under the heavy bombardments of Russian and Syrian warplanes.
The Russian and Syrian fighter jets targeted supply routes and gatherings of Jeish al-Fatah in Khan Touman and Ma’arata, destroying a number of the militants’ machinegun-equipped vehicles and killing or injuring a number of them.
The Syrian and Russian bombers also hit positions of Fatah al-Sham in Haraytan, al-Mallah farms and al-Uwaijeh, leaving scores of the militants dead or wounded.
