The terrorists intended to infiltrate into Nabal and al-Zahra regions in Aleppo and attack the Shiite population in those areas when they faced a sudden ambush by the Syrian forces.
The popular resistance forces in the two besieged towns of Nabal and al-Zahra also detonated a tunnel dig by the terrorists to infiltrate into the two towns and killed all al-Nusra Front forces inside the tunnels.
They also killed two terrorist snipers in the Northern outskirts of al-Zahra town.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, the Syrian Army alongside the Lebanon’s Hezbollah Resistance Movement raided the positions of the al-Nusra terrorists in the surrounding areas of Jreijeer Heights and pushed them back from the battlefront, military sources said on Wednesday.
The sources said that the Syrian army men and Hezbollah fighters, after fierce clashes on Tuesday and Wednesday, gained the upper hand against the rebels in Arsal farm, particularly after their eye-catching advances in the Jreijeer Heights.
The Syrian army and Hezbollah retook control over the Flita Heights in al-Qalamoun last week, and killed tens of insurgents there.
