Aleppo: Terrorist Groups Acknowledge Nearly 2,500 Casualties in Great Epic Operation
The Arabic service of RT quoted the sources as saying that the terrorist groups suffered between 2, 200 up to 2,500 casualties, including a large number of non-Syrian militants, in their Great Epic Operation on Army positions in Western and Southwestern Aleppo in the last 6 days.
Meantime, other sources said earlier today that days of attacks by around 16,000 militants under the Great Epic Operation to prevail over the government forces’ positions and lift the siege of militants in Eastern districts of Aleppo ended in nothing but the most devastating failure for the terrorists since escalation of the crisis in Syria.
“The Great Epic Operation was the largest offensive of terrorists on government troops’ position since the start of the crisis in Syria,” the sources said.
Jeish al-Islam terrorists launched a fresh round of attacks on government positions in Western part of Aleppo city on Tuesday afternoon.
The Syrian army repelled the terrorists’ attacks in Jam’iyat al-Zahra and Assad Military-Engineering Academy, inflicting tens of casualties on them.
The terrorists used bomb-laden suicide vehicles in their attacks but army soldiers targeted most of them before they could approach their positions.
The Syrian army also fended off militants’ offensive in Menyan region.
The army troops clashed with militants in Zahiyeh al-Assad district and its nearby areas and are now pushing back the terrorists from the district.
