The army said that after hours of fierce clashes with the militant groups the Syrian government forces took full control over Banes a town in the Sothern part of al-Eis.
“The militants suffered a heavy death toll in the clashes and retreated from the battlefront after leaving behind their military vehicles and equipment,” the army added.
Earlier reports said that the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) killed at least 10 ISIL terrorists and wounded many more after hours of fierce clashes with the militant group in the Eastern part of Aleppo province.
The army said that the clashes occurred near the villages of Rasm al-Kabir, Jarrouf and Beijan.
“The ISIL terrorists suffered a heavy death toll, and their military hardware was also destroyed in the Syrian government forces’ attacks,” the source said.
“The Syria army and its allies have gained upper hand against the militant groups, mainly against the Takfiri terrorists, wherever they have been backed up by the Russian and Syrian air forces,” the army further added.
Not only the ISIL, but other notorious militant groups, including Ahrar al-Sham have failed in the battles against the Syrian government forces.
