The Syrian Army and its allies fended off a massive assault by the ISIS terrorists on the government forces’ positions in two key villages in Northern Aleppo province and forced the militants to retreat back to their positions.

The ISIS attempts to prevail over the government forces' lines of defense in the villages of Kafr Sakeer and Babbenes near the al-Sheikh Najjar industrial zone were thwarted by the Syrian soldiers who claimed the lives of dozens of terrorists.

A military source said at least 50 ISIS militants lost their lives in subsequent clashes with the Syrian army in the two villages.

Most parts of Aleppo province have been purged of terrorists who are now engaged in increasing internal clashes in the limited stretches of lands that are still under their control.

Earlier in Aleppo province, the Ahrar al-Sham and Jund al-Aqsa terrorist groups operating in the Northern province of Aleppo engaged in fierce clashes with each other after the death of a senior ISIS ringleader.

After a senior ISIS ringleader who was dispatched to assist other terrorists in Aleppo sucumbed to death hours after receiving deadly wounds in clashes with the Syrian Army on Thursday, the Jund al-Aqsa terrorist group sought to hold a ceremony for his death but Ahrar al-Sham opposed it which resulted in heavy clashes.

Hessan Aboud al-Sarmini was died of his lethal wounds in Khanasser region Southeast of Aleppo after being seriously wounded in clashes with the Syrian army and its allies.

Another top militant commander was killed during clashes between terrorists and Syrian Kurdish fighters in a neighborhood in the Northern city of Aleppo on Monday.

"The Thuwar al-Sham terrorist group's field commander called Umar Sanda was eliminated as the terrorists tried to open their path into Sheikh Maqsoud district in the Northern areas of the city of Aleppo," the well-informed source on the ground said.

Sheikh Maqsoud is a neighborhood in the city of Aleppo. The neighborhood is controlled by the Kurdish fighters of the People's Protection Units, YPG; FNA reported.
