The Syrian army forces launched new operations in the outskirts of al-Yarmoun town on the Northern parts of Aleppo and launched surprise attacks against the terrorists’ positions in al-Khalediya region on the Western side of Bani Zaid town.
The Syrian army and popular forces could purge the terrorists off Sarhil and Makki workshops and killed and wounded over 34 of them in the early hours of their attacks.
Clashes continued until Thursday morning with the resistance front’s full control over Khalediya region which means establishment of security in the Eastern parts of Yarmoun and surrounding the terrorists from Bani Zaid’s Western side.
Concurrent with the attacks, the Syrian army started offensives against the terrorists in Jabal al-Shawihana and Maarah al-Artiq regions in Northern Aleppo.
The Syrian warplanes also launched airstrikes against two strategic regions of al-Rashedin 4 and al-Rashedin 5 districts in the Western parts of Aleppo and Malaah farms.
Reports from the same region in Northern Aleppo said on Wednesday that the terrorists of Nour al-Din al-Zanki Movement were forced to retreat from a strategic region after they had fierce clashes with other rival terrorists groups
The Nour al-Din al-Zanki terrorists withdrew from al-Malaah-Castillo road in the Northern part of Aleppo city.
The terrorists’ retreat came after they sustained heavy losses and casualties in clashes with rival terrorist groups, including the Al-Nusra Front, and their heavy defeats by the Syrian army over the past two weeks.
The Nour al-Din al-Zanki and Al-Nusra terrorists had previously withdrawn from al-Malaah farms in Northern Aleppo before withdrawing from the crucial Castillo road.
Also yesterday, a military strategist announced that the Syrian government forces are making rapid advances across the economically strategic al-Lairamoun region and Bani Zeid in the Northern countryside of Aleppo.
”The recent advances of the Syrian Army and its allies in al-Lairamoun and Bani Zeid will leave no chance for the militant groups to use these two districts to hit other neighborhoods of Aleppo city, and will significantly decrease civilian casualties,” a military strategist said.
“In the meantime, more military achievements in al-Lairamoun industrial region will result in more economic achievements for the government forces and a graver shortage of financial resources for the terrorist groups,” he added.
“Arab houses in Bani Zeid near the golden city buildings and the road connecting al-Zaheb to al-Ashrafiyeh are under the control of the Syrian army; in the meantime, the army has expanded its control over two main buildings of Hamoud and Salata near the al-Lairamoun square. The army has also captured five more factories and industrial sites in al-Lairamoun,” the sources said.
“If the army continues to advance in al-Lairamoun and reach the Castillo highway, will kill two birds with one stone. Control over al-Lairamoun meant control over hundreds of factories and firms with thousands of workers and hefty amount of exports. On the other hand, if the government forces complete the siege on Bani Zeid, they will find control over a road connecting the Northern side of Aleppo city to Hraytan. The army then can cut off this supply route to Aleppo,” the sources went on to say.
“With this tactic, the Syrian army and its allies can completely cut off Castillo and Hraytan roads without confronting the militants deployed there and the entire militant-held regions in Eastern Aleppo will be besieged,” the sources pointed out.
