Aleppo Province: Syrian Army Wins Back 3 Key Regions, Kills over 42 Terrorists

The Syrian army and popular forces seized back three strategic regions in Aleppo, and killed over three dozen terrorists in heavy fighting in other parts of the province.

The government forces managed to take full control of the al-Maqla, Kasarat and Qos al-Oweija regions in Aleppo province. Meantime, over 42 terrorists were killed in tough battle with the Syrian government forces and popular forces in Sheikh Saeed, al-Ferdos and Housing Project 1070.

Earlier on Friday, the Syrian army backed by the country’s air force engaged in fierce clashes with terrorists in the Northeastern parts of Aleppo province.

Tough battle is underway between the government forces and the terrorists in Mislon, Qastr al-Harami and Agyour in Northeastern Aleppo, a local source said.

The source noted that the Syrian fighter jets also heavily bombarded the terrorists’ positions in Northeastern Aleppo.

“Terrorists have sustained a large number of casualties and the bodies of the dead terrorists are scattered on the ground in the battlefield,” he added.

On Thursday, the Syrian army’s 102nd Brigade from the Republican Guard, backed by Liwaa al-Quds (Palestinian forces), retook full control of the strategic hills of Talat al-Bureij and Jabal al-Zafit in Northeastern Aleppo.

The 102nd Brigade and Liwaa al-Quds began their operations on Thursday morning by targeting Talat al-Bureij and Jabal al-Zafit from their positions at the nearby quarries which resulted in a fierce battle with the Harakat Nouriddeen al-Zinki, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and several other terrorist groups.

During the operations, the Syrian armed forces strengthened their positions near the Majbal and Manasher districts that gave them fire control over several buildings controlled by the militants.

According to a field source, the Syrian armed forces could also build a larger buffer-zone around the strategic Sheikh Najjar Industrial District, which is currently being rebuilt by the Syrian government.
