The Syrian Army troops engaged in heavy clashes with Tahrir al-Sham terrorists who had attacked their military positions in al-Rashedeen axis in Western Aleppo, the Arabic-language version of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted a Syrian military source as saying.
Meantime, Sputnik said that the terrorist groups launched rocket attacks on al-Hamdanieh and New Aleppo districts.
The Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units also heavily pounded the terrorists’ movements all across Western Aleppo, destroying several of their key positions and a number of military vehicles, it said.
Tens of terrorists were killed and many others were wounded in clashes with the Syrian Army troops while 12 Syrian soldiers were also killed in the clashes, Sputnik added.
In Southeastern Idlib, the Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units pounded the military positions and movements of Tahrir al-Sham in the villages of Al-Sha’areh and al-Sayyadi, destroying several of their positions.
The Syrian Army attacks came in response to terrorists’ indiscriminate artillery and missile attacks on civilian areas and military zones.
In a relevant development earlier this week, the Syrian Army pounded and destroyed the military positions and convoys of the terrorists in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.
The Syrian Army’s missile units fired at least 40 missiles at military convoys of Tahrir al-Sham’s elite terrorists in Khan Sheikhoun city in Southern Idlib, Sputnik news agency quoted a military source as saying.
The source pointed to the dispatch of military equipment and militants by terrorists to that region, and said several military vehicles of the terrorists have been destroyed and tens of militants were killed or wounded after their convoys came under attack.
