Terrorists in marathon-like retreat as Syrian Army captures more ground in Aleppo

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has captured more ground in the Aleppo Governorate this afternoon following the withdrawal of the jihadist groups from several areas near the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5).

According to a military source this afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s 25th Special Mission Forces Division (formerly Tiger Forces) captured at least three towns from the jihadist rebels after a short battle along the Aleppo-Idlib provincial axis.

The source said the Syrian Army captured the towns of Al-Zurbah, Al-Barqoum, and Al-Salihiyah from the jihadist rebels, giving their forces new positions along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway.

He would add that the Syrian Army is still on the move in southern Aleppo and should capture more territory from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and their allies in the coming hours.

The jihadist rebels have been in a marathon-like retreat from the Idlib and Aleppo governorates over the last three weeks, resulting in the loss of several important areas like Ma’arat Al-Nu’man and Saraqib.
