The Syrian army and popular forces launched a major counter-offensive on ISIS militants in Aleppo, winning back a village and standing at the gates of another one.

The Syrian army along with their allies from the Lebanese Hezbollah group attacked the ISIS from the North and subsequently recaptured Rasm al-Nafl village while advancing to the outskirts of Shallalah al-Kabirah village.

Furthermore, the Syrian army - primarily backed by the pro-government Liwaa Al-Quds Brigade - successfully entered Khanaser and captured the city, while clashes are ongoing on the outskirts of this strategic town.

The army's latest advance in Aleppo province was made after heavy clashes with the terrorist groups in the region.

Military sources said on Thursday that tens of terrorists were killed and several others were injured in the battle.

The Syrian army killed tens of Takfiri terrorists in a counter-offensive on the ISIS on Ithrya-Khanaser road on Wednesday.

The army's counter-offensive came after the ISIS tried to attack the army units' military positions along Ithrya-Khanaser road.

Heavy clashes are still underway in the surrounding areas of Khanaser town.

According to field sources, over 100 terrorists have been killed in the fierce clashes with the Syrian army and popular forces, FNA reported.
