The army forces, supported by heavy artillery and missile fire, attacked the al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) positions in the town of Ramlah from Rasm al-Sayalah in Southeastern Aleppo.
The Syrian air force also targeted the terrorists’ positions in the region, inflicting casualties on them.
Meantime, a field source said that the Syrian army soldiers could break the terrorists’ defense lines in al-Ramlah.
The Syrian army troops are now advancing in the three fronts of Northern and Northeastern Hama and Southeastern Aleppo towards Abu al-Dhohour military airport, he added.
Military sources disclosed on Wednesday that the Syrian Army troops are preparing for breaking the siege imposed by terrorists on the Shiite towns of Fua’a and Kafraya in the Northeastern countryside of Idlib city within the framework of their operation to free the Abu al-Dhohour airbase.
The sources pointed to the army’s ongoing operations to reach Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib and added that the army’s control over the base will pave the way for the easier advances and ultimately lift of the siege imposed by militants on Fua’a and Kafraya.
The army’s plan for Fua’a and Kafraya comes after the terrorist groups’ violation of their commitment to the agreement for the exit of residents of Fua’a and Kafraya and indifferences of international relief and rescue bodies to the besieged towns’ population.
