The Syrian Army continued its fight against Takfiri militants in Idlib and Aleppo provinces, inflicting heavy casualties on them.
The army soldiers targeted the hideouts of the rebels in al-Rami, Kansfara, al-Jabal al-Gharbi, and al-Arba’een areas on the outskirts of Idlib, leaving a large number of them dead.
Meantime, the militants suffered heavy losses in Aleppo as the army made gains in its fight against the armed groups in al-Lairamon, al-Mallah, Kherbat al-Maajir, Hreitan, al-Kastello, Binan al-Hiss, Handarat Camp, Bashkouy, al-Ammaryeh, and Handarat.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
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.
