The Syrian Army has clawed back more territory from Daesh in the northern Aleppo province as the country’s Air Force jets pounded the terrorists’ positions in the region, Iran’s Fars news agency reported on Thursday.
On Wednesday the government forces clashed with Daesh militants in the eastern part of the province, driving them out of several villages, the agency wrote.
“The Syrian army troops drove ISIL back from Ein al-Beida village and its surrounding farms in the eastern part of the province near the newly liberated village of Aisheh,” the army said in a statement.
Also on Wednesday local sources said that the Syrian Army and its popular allies had targeted the militants’ positions in one of the western neighborhoods of Aleppo city and had broken through their defense lines.
The Syrian Army and the country’s popular forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, have in the past few weeks continued their advance, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorist groups in the country’s key provinces, destroying enemy positions in Lattakia, Homs, Damascus, Deir Ezzur, Aleppo, Dara’a and Hama provinces.
