Tehran (Press Shia) – Takfiri terrorists have lost all of the northern neighborhoods in eastern Aleppo as Syria’s army and their allies are making significant advances in their fight against the foreign-backed militants, a report said.
On Monday, Takfiri militants lost northern neighborhoods in besieged east in Aleppo as the Syrian army and allies advance in offensive to take entire city, according to a report by Al Jazeera.
Backed by voluntary forces, the army troops on Monday launched a major offensive against terrorist groups in the embattled northwestern city and managed to wrest control of several areas in the city's east, including al-Haidaria, al-Sakhour, al-Inzarat, Sheikh Khudre, Mahalej factories, Suleiman al-Halabi station, and Bustan al-Basha.
Syrian forces are now defusing scores of improvised explosive devices and mines in the recaptured areas, which terrorists had planted in the areas to slow down Syrian army advances.
Separately, Syrian warplanes on Monday targeted the positions of terrorist groups in Idlib and Hama provinces, inflicting major losses on the Takfiri militants.
Syrian fighter jets strafed the gathering centers of Jaish al-Fath terrorists in the areas of Kfromeh, al-Tamanaa and Khan Shaikhoun in the southern countryside of the northwestern province of Idlib, Syria’s SANA official website reported.
Large groups of the terrorists were killed in the militant-held province.
Additionally, the Syrian Air Force inflicted major losses on terrorists after hitting their positions in areas of Mourek, al-Quneitrat, al-Araba’en, Souran, Maan, Skaik, and Tal Tarae in the northern countryside of Hama province.
Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), currently controlling parts of it.
According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the country’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.
