Syrian government forces have dealt severe blows to the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham terrorist group in the country’s northern province of Aleppo.
During the Tuesday operations carried out in the province’s southern countryside, several towns and villages were liberated from the Takfiri terrorists.
Earlier in the day, Syrian troops also took control of a strategic road and al-Shaheed hilltop located some 60 kilometers outside of the province.
The move effectively cut off a main supply route to the Takfiris in the province and its vicinity.
Army engineering units are currently engaged in sweeping the freshly-liberated areas for mines and others explosive devises left by the terrorists.
Elsewhere in the country, Syrian forces retook a strategic hill in the country’s western-central province of Hama.
In the operation, a large number of terrorists were killed and equipment was destroyed.
The gains come just two days after, Syrian army forces and their allies managed to recapture the villages of Jabal al-Modawar, Wadi al-Sanou’a, al-Na’amaniyeh, Boweizeh Saqireh, Moshrefeh al-Boweizetain, Boweizeh Kabireha and al-Wajed after storming militant positions there and engaging in heavy fighting with the Takfiris in Aleppo.
Syrian army forces and their allies have managed to recapture more villages in the southwestern part of the country’s northwestern province of Aleppo.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
