The Syrian Armed Forces made significant advances against the ISIL and al-Nusra terrorists in Aleppo province, near the borders with Turkey, reliable sources in the region said.
The sources said that the army men launched massive attacks against the ISIL terrorists’ positions in Dir Hafer, Banan al-Hiss, Khan Touman, which resulted in the destruction of the militants’ depot of ammunition and weapons.
Meanwhile, the army units confronted al-Nusra terrorists in al-Lairamoun, al-Ansari and Jub al- Qebba neighborhoods in Aleppo, where many terrorists were killed, others were injured and their vehicles were destroyed.
Also on Saturday, the army targeted the rebels’ centers in Khan al-Assal, al-Mansoura, al-Rashideen, and Kherbit al-Ma’asir in Aleppo and its countryside, and destroyed a long convoy of the militants’ vehicles loaded with weapons and ammunitions.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
