Syrian armed forces have restored security and stability to the village of Kifr Saghir to the north of al-Sheikh Najjar Industrial City in Aleppo’s northern countryside.

The development came on Sunday when government troops dismantled a number of explosive devices and mines planted by foreign-backed insurgents on the roads and inside the homes of the village, which overlooks a number of other villages in addition to the Infantry Academy and al-Mislmyeh-Aleppo highway, Syrian state news agency SANA reported.

Syrian army units also hunted the Industrial City of al-Sheikh Najjar, discovering large amounts of rocket shells, communication devices and materials used by the armed insurgents to manufacture explosive devices.

Syrian forces have stepped up their operations against intruding insurgents and terrorists in recent month in their effort to bring an end to more than three years of a foreign-sponsored insurgency war that has cost the country so much losses and destruction.

Despite incurring heavy losses in the past year, the foreign-led opposition forces and terrorist groups have made numerous pleas to their sponsors to supply them with more weaponry and other supplies to continue their trail of death and destruction in the Arab county with the aim of toppling the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
