The Syrian army backed by popular forces and Hezbollah fighters won control over a key thermal power plant in the Eastern parts of Aleppo province near the strategic Kuweires Airbase on Tuesday, FNA reported.

Sources told FNA that the Syrian army troops entered the Thermal Power plant Southeast of Aleppo province following the artillery units' massive shelling of ISIL's fortified positions in the region.

The Syrian army victory was clinched as army's artillery units have been pounding the terrorists' positions since early Tuesday morning.

"In a separate operation, the army and popular forces engaged in clashes with ISIL terrorists in al-Tiba village," the sources said, adding that over 10 machinegun-equipped vehicles of the terrorist group were destroyed in the clashes, while a number of others were partially damaged.
