Jeish al-Fatah terrorist group admitted sustaining heavy damages and death of 167 members during clashes with the Syrian army and popular forces in the Southern parts of Aleppo.
Informed sources close to Jeish al-Fatah reported on Sunday that 24 ringleaders of the terrorist group are among the 167 militants killed in Aleppo recently.
They also added that 5 tanks and 34 military vehicles belonging to the terrorists were destroyed during the fighting.
Also, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) quoted a Jeish al-Fatah commander as saying that the terrorist group has sustained big losses and damage in the war with the Syrian army in Southern Aleppo.
Meantime, military sources said on Saturday that hundreds of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists crossed Turkey’s border into Northern Syria to join their comrades in the mountainous battlefields of the coastal province of Lattakia that has been the scene of government forces’ advances in the recent days.
“After significant advances of the Syrian army and its popular allies against the terrorist groups near the border with Turkey, Ankara paved the way for scores of the terrorists to enter Lattakia to join their comrades from Chechnya and Caucasus deployed in Turkmen mountain,” the sources said.
On Friday, the Syrian Army troops and popular forces continued to hit the strongholds of the terrorist groups in Northern Lattakia and pushed the militants back from more heights near the border with Turkey.
The Syrian government forces’ operation in Northern Lattakia ended in the seizure of Nawwara region and meantime claimed the lives of several militants.
Also, the Syrian army men engaged in heavy fighting with al-Nusra Front in al-Nimer region and forced the militants to retreat from the battlefield after leaving behind scores of the dead and wounded members.
