The Syrian army killed tens of militants in cleanup operations in Reef (countryside of) Aleppo in Northern Syria on Saturday.
The army attacked the gathering centers of al-Qaeda-linked terrorists in Abu Zohur region of Reef Aleppo. Tens of terrorists were killed and Dozens more were injured in heavy clashes.
Meantime, the Syrian army thwarted the armed rebels’ attack on a military airport in the region.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. The western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — have frequently underlined their staunch support for the militants in Syria.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
