Syrian troops killed more than 300 foreign-backed terrorists and injured hundreds of others in a large-scale military operations in the Northwestern Idlib province in the past two days.
A Syrian source present on the battle scene explained that the Syrian army’s operations in the past 48 hours have claimed the lives of over 300 Takfiri terrorists, most of them foreign nationals.
“In these operations hundreds of terrorists were also injured and the number of their casualties was so high that the field hospitals set up for the terrorists didn’t admit many of them,” the source said.
According to the source, the Syrian army also staged massive airstrikes in Idlib and its countryside, forcing the terrorists to evacuate their positions and even command centers in different regions, including Mahambal, Sanqarah, al-Moqbelah, Ain al-Hamra, Bastaqoul, Katasfara and Kafar Shalaya as well as Idlib, Ariha and Jisr al-Shughour cities.
Earlier reports from Syria had said that 7 high-profile commanders were killed after Syrian warplanes targeted al-Nusra Front positions in Idlib.
According to reports by FNA dispatches, the Syrian fighter jets launched their heaviest air raids yet on al-Nusra targets in the Northwestern province of Idlib on Monday, leaving more than 50 militants dead and 115 others seriously injured.
The reports also said that at least seven senior commanders of the terrorist group were also killed in the strikes, adding that Osama Bin Torki and Seyfeddin Torkestani were among the dead ringleaders.
On June 7, the army troops took back three villages almost two kilometers (one mile) South of Hasakah after driving out the al-Nusra terrorists.
Syrian forces, backed by volunteer forces, also stymied an attempt by the terrorist to infiltrate a village in Northeastern Hasakah.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
