Syrian Army Retakes Control of More Regions in Aleppo
The army soldiers took back control of the two villages of al-Malahemeh and Eastern Atshaneh after clashes with al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) and other terrorist groups in Southern Aleppo.
The army’s engineering units immediately started cleansing operations in the newly-liberated areas.
Meantime, a field source said that the army is advancing concurrently in the two fronts of Southern Aleppo and Southeastern Idlib towards the strategic town of Saraqib.
In a relevant development earlier today, the Syrian army troops captured more regions near the newly-freed Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib after heavy fighting with Al-Nusra Front.
The army men stormed the positions of al-Nusra positions West of Abu al-Dhohour airbase and imposed control over the villages of Albaraqisi, al-Zahbiyeh, al-Salehiyeh, Tawil al-Halib, Tal Khatra, Maqara Mazra’a and al-Sukariyah.
The army soldiers further advanced and won back the Air-defense Unit Base near Abu al-Dhohour airbase West of Tawil al-Halib.
The army units continued to push towards the key town of Saraqib in Eastern Idlib after the recent advances West of Abu al-Dhohour.
