Syrian Army Recaptures Town in Southern Aleppo after Rapid Counter-Assault

2 December 2017 13:45

 

The Syrian Army troops launched a swift counter-assault in Southern Aleppo, targeting the towns the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) captured on Wednesday and Thursday.

The army soldiers, led by the 3rd and 5th legions, began the day by attacking the town of Abisan from their positions at the nearby region of Azizah.

The army units would manage to prevail over Al-Nusra’s frontlines and recaptured Abisan and its corresponding hilltop.

Following the capture of these sites, the army soldiers shifted their attention to the town of al-Ramleh, which was captured by Al-Nusra on Wednesday.

Sporadic clashes are taking place outside of al-Ramleh, but the Syrian Army has yet to fully storm the town.

Relevant reports said on Thursday that the army extended the range of its advances towards the strategic Abu al-Dhohour airport in Idlib, sending reinforcement and new equipment to Southern Aleppo.

The army forces continued clashes with al-Nusra Front terrorists in Southern Aleppo on Thursday, regaining control of the village of Ramlat al-Thour.

Meantime, field sources confirmed that the army has sent a new military convoy, consisting of fresh forces and equipment, from Hama to Southern Aleppo.

They added that the army soldiers are moving from three fronts in Southern Aleppo and Eastern Hama towards Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southern Idlib.
