16 January 2018 22:20

 

The Syrian Army troops stormed the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation board) in Southern Aleppo and managed to capture several villages in the push towards Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib on Tuesday.

The army soldiers exchanged heavy fire with the Al-Nusra in Southern Aleppo and captured the villages of Oweinat Saqira, Oweinat Kabaira and Marhamiya, inching closer to the strategic Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib.

A number of al-Nusra gunmen were killed or wounded and their military equipment were damaged in the army operation.

Earlier reports said that the army men stormed the Al-Nusra’s positions on Tal (hill) al-Shahid after capturing Tal al-Zaman and managed to impose control over a key region West of the village of Jafr al-Mansour along the road connecting Tal al-Zaman to Abu al-Dhohour.

A military source said that a vast region in Southern Aleppo in now under the monitoring of army soldiers after the fall of Tal al-Shahid into the government forces.

The source said that the army also pushed terrorists back from the Eastern part of the town of al-Oweinat after capturing the Tal al-Shahid.

The army men are planning to advance more from Southern Aleppo to lay siege on Abu al-Dhohour airbase from the North, while the military airbase has been under the army’s siege from its Eastern and Southwestern directions.
