Syrian Air Force Stages Heavy Airstrikes on ISIL’s Positions in Northeastern Aleppo
The warplanes and choppers carried out several rounds of joint combat flights over ISIL’s concentration centers and positions South of al-Bab, leaving a number of terrorists dead and wounded.
A military source also said that the Syrian government forces are to start a large-scale operation to hit the ISIL in Eastern Aleppo in coming days.
Reports said almost 6,000 army soldiers have been deployed near the Kuweires airbase waiting for the Damascus order to start a large-scale operation against the ISIL in the two key regions of al-Bab and Deir Hafer in Aleppo.
Field reports said on Monday that the Syrian Army troops were about to start a fresh round of large-scale operation in Northeastern Aleppo to liberate the town of al-Bab from ISIL terrorists.
The sources said that while the Turkish army and Ankara-backed terrorist groups from one side and the Kurdish forces from another side were advancing towards al-Bab, the army reinvigorated its military power in the village of Faah in Southwestern al-Bab.
The army also boosted its military presence in regions South-East of al-Bab near the Kuweires airbase, the sources added.
They pointed out that hundreds of army soldiers were deployed in areas surrounding the town in the recent months, adding that the Kuweires airbase would be the platform for launching the attack on ISIL in al-Bab.
