Syrian forces have killed nearly 170 Takfiri terrorists during battle in the northern province of Aleppo in recent days, a report says.

The terrorists were killed in fierce clashes with the government forces backed by volunteer fighters in the southern Aleppo countryside, Lebanese al-Manar television channel reported on Sunday.

Sources close to Jaish al-Fatah, an ally of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, have admitted that two dozen ringleaders and top militant commanders of the terrorist group were among the 167 terrorists killed across the troubled region.

They also added that five tanks and 34 military vehicles belonging to the terrorists have been destroyed.

According to a report from the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria, the Syrian army has thwarted an offensive launched by al-Nusra in Aleppo province.

“In the northern part of the Aleppo province, near the Syrian-Turkish border, the units of the Syrian Armed Forces have stopped a large-scale offensive of military formations of Jabhat al-Nusra,” the report said.

Syrian forces are currently fighting terrorists on several fronts, including in Aleppo province, which borders Turkey.

Syrian Army Units Recapture 2 Major Oil Fields

Syrian forces have also liberated the Thawra and Miakin oil fields which are located on the outskirts of Raqqa city, which has been de facto capital of the Daesh (ISIS / ISIL) Takfiri terrorist group.

The Syrian forces are closing in on the Tabqa military airport in Raqqa province and have also made fresh gains against terrorists in the city of Rasafa.

The Syrian army entered Raqqa province in early June for the first time since 2014, when ISIS unleashed its campaign of terror inside Syria.

The potential recapture of Raqqa in Syria and the Iraqi city of Mosul, which likewise awaits liberation operations, would mark the ultimate blow to ISIS.

Raqqa, on the northern bank of the Euphrates River, was overrun by the Takfiri terrorists in March 2013, and was proclaimed the center for most of the terrorists’ administrative and control tasks the next year.
