Syrian Army Wins Back More Areas in Southwestern Aleppo
The army forces continued clashes with terrorists in Southwestern Aleppo, regaining control of the two villages of Um Khan in the Western parts of Tal Sabhah and Um al-Amad Qabali in the Northwestern parts of Tal Sabhah in Southwest of the town of Khanasser.
The Syrian army forces are 7km away before they could lay siege on the terrorists in Aleppo, Hama and Idlib as they are advancing from Southeastern Idlib and Western Aleppo.
Government sources disclosed on Wednesday that the Syrian army troops are advancing rapidly against terrorists in Hama, Aleppo and Idlib provinces, besieging the militants in a vast region that covers over 300 villages.
The sources said that the army units have carried out rapid and heliborne operations as part of their major assault on the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) in the last several hours and managed to capture large territories in Southeastern Idlib.
The sources pointed to the Al-Nusra’s heavy casualties, and said that the army forces targeted terrorists’ main strongholds, military vehicles, anti-tank TOW missile launchers in the battlefield and pushed the terrorist front into complete failure.
They further said that the ground has been paved for the army to trap the Al-Nusra in a very large region that includes 300 villages in the provinces of Hama, Idlib and Aleppo as the army men are now 18 km away from Abu al-Dhohour airbase from the direction of Southern Aleppo and their comrades have reached the gates of the military airport from Southeastern Idlib.
