Syrian Army Strikes Heavy Blows at Militants across Homs, Aleppo Provinces
The Syrian Army continued its operations against the foreign-backed militants across the Central province of Homs and the Northern province of Aleppo, and inflicted heavy losses upon them, military sources announced.
The sources said that the country’s army alongside the popular forces repelled terrorists’ attempts to infiltrate from al-Ra’es mosque into al-Khrab Street in al-Waer neighborhood in the city of Homs, killing a number of them and injuring others.
A number of terrorists were killed also and others were injured during army operations in Tallet al-Rastan in the North countryside of Homs city.
Meantime, the army targeted the rebels’ centers in Deir Hafir, Khan al-Assal, al-Mansoura, al-Rashideen, Kherbit al-Ma’asir and Binan al-Huss in Aleppo and its countryside, and destroyed a long convoy of the militants’ vehicles loaded with weapons and ammunitions.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
