Syrian Army Wins Back 4 Strategic Regions in Aleppo Province

The Syrian army continued its advances in Aleppo, and seized back four strategic regions in the Northern province.

The army took control of Jamiat Bashkoy, two factories and a stronghold of the coalition of the terrorist groups called ‘Fath Halab’ (Aleppo Conquest) in the Northern parts of Aleppo.

Jamiat Bashkoy is of strategic importance because it is only two kilometers away from the town of Ratian which is an important terrorist center in Northern Aleppo.

Meantime, Halab al-Jadida, al-Rashedeen and Al-Ashrafiya regions were also the scenes of heavy clashes between the army and the terrorist groups.

On Friday, reports from Northern Syria said the Army has pushed back terrorists’ massive attacks on its line of defense in Aleppo city and inflicted heavy casualty on the militants in the last four days.

Fath Halab had intensified its attacks on the city to break the army’s line of defense, specially in the Western parts of Aleppo.

Fath Halab started its attacks on Al-Ashrafiya, Al-Khalediya, Al-Sabil and al-Zahra districts in Western Aleppo last Monday.

On Tuesday, the Syrian army intensified its offensives in Aleppo after the terrorist groups launched mortar attacks on the Western parts of the city.

The army’s intensified attacks came after the terrorists hit the government-controlled residential areas in Aleppo city.

However, the Syrian army prevented the terrorists to make any advancement in the areas under its control in Western Aleppo.

The terrorists started heavy attacks against the Syrian army positions in Aleppo with the intelligence, logistic and arms supports that could have been provided only by their regional allies, an independent source said.
