The Russian air force traced the terrorists’ fresh forces heading towards the Syrian army positions in Aleppo and targeted them with heavy fire.

The Russian warplanes launched surprise attacks on the al-Nusra Front and Ansar al-Din Movement's newly-recruited forces in Aleppo, killing dozens of them and injuring others.

The fresh terrorists were sent to repel the Syrian army attacks and prevent its advance towards al-Malah, Haritan and Anadan villages.

The airstrikes were launched as the Syrian army troops and popular forces, backed by the Syrian Air Force, continued advances in the Southern regions of Aleppo province, managing to recapture the al-Asamat region from the terrorist groups, a battlefield source said.

“Pro-government forces engaged in a series of fierce clashes with militant groups in al-Mallah Farms, killing a number of terrorists as they recaptured Asamat area,” the source noted on Sunday.  

Also on Sunday, the Syrian army and popular forces backed by the Russian air force hit the terrorists' military positions in Aleppo, and managed to disconnect their supply routes in the Northern province.

The Syrian army destroyed the military bases of the Takfiri terrorists in Bani Zeid region, Al-Mallah farms, Handarat camp and Castello road while cutting their supply routes in al-Lairmoun road.

Meantime, the military centers of Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham terrorists groups in Tal Mossayebin and Kafar Joum villages in the Western part of Aleppo came under the Syrian army attack.

The army units also hit the terrorists' military positions in Hayan and Hraytan villages, FNA reported.
