Syria in Last 24 Hours: Army Takes Control of Strategic District in Aleppo City
The Syrian army continued its advances in the Northern parts of the country, and regained control of a strategic area in Aleppo city.
The foreign-backed terrorists were pushed out of the Malah district in Aleppo city after a series of fierce clashes with the army troops.
The foreign-backed rebels also suffered major losses in Southern and Western Handarat in Aleppo countryside.
Also in the past 24 hours, foreign-backed militants sustained heavy toll in Homs province, as the Syrian Army continued to score more gains in its push against the Takfiri armed-groups causing havoc in the Arab country.
The army troops clashed with the rebels in the areas of al-Sultania, Rahoum and in Beit Rab’a in al-Rastan in the central province of Homs, killing and injuring a great number of them.
Elsewhere, the army launched a number of surprise attacks against the strongholds of the militants in Idlib province, and claimed the lives of scores of them in Maaret al-Nouman, Darkoush, Abu al-Duhour and Maalali.
Syrian army troops targeted a hideout of the Takfiri terrorist organizations in Hallouz village, 56 km Southwest of the Northern province of Idlib, killing and wounding many of the terrorists. A number of the militants’ vehicles loaded with weapons and ammunition were also destroyed in the surrounding of the village, an informed source said.
Meanwhile, the army also killed and injured a number of militants near Kafar Owaid village.
The Syrian army killed a number of militants and destroyed their vehicles on the junction of Qastoun village.
Meantime, hundreds of Tribesmen of Deir Ezzur joined the Syrian army to fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) Takfiri terrorist group in there.
Also, the Syrian army repelled an ISIL attack against Deir Ezzur military Airport and killed scores of terrorists, including a Libyan and a Tunisian commander.
The Syrian army also targeted a terrorist meeting at Zamrani crossing in Qalamoun between one of the brigades of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) and ISIL, killing and injuring a number of militants, including commanders.
In a different context, ISIL terrorists executed 21 youths in the city of Jarablus in Aleppo Northern countryside, without identifying the reasons.
Meantime, Kurdish forces killed at least 16 ISIL terrorists in an attack in Northeast Syria near the border with Turkey, the UK-based opposing Syrian Observatory said.
The assault targeted ISIL positions South of the town of Ras al-Ain in Hasakeh province, the group added.
Ras al-Ain was the scene of fierce fighting last year before Kurdish forces ousted the terrorists from the border town.
The Observatory also reported clashes at the terrorist-besieged border town of Kobani, some 100 kilometers (60 miles) away.
Also, the Syrian Troops continued to make more advances in their confrontation with armed groups in Daraa province, leaving more than 50 Takfiri militants dead and wounded.
The army soldiers inflicted heavy losses on the rebels in the towns of al-Sheikh Miskeen, Eastern al-Mleha, and al-Hrak in the Southern province of Daraa, killing dozens of them.
The gathering centers of the militants were also raided in the areas of Bosra al-Cham, Deir al-Adas, Samlin, and al-Fakae, as the army made more gains in the nearby areas of the province.
A number of vehicles belonging to the Takfiri group were also targeted during the operations.
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.
