Meantime, other units of the Syrian armed forces, in a series of operations, clashed with the foreign-backed rebel forces in the two Aleppo districts of al-Sakhour and Sheikh Kheder and killed deozens of the militants who had raided the two regions earlier today.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards across the country.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed since some sporadic protest rallies turned into armed clashes.
The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
