Syrian Army has repulsed ISIL's attacks near the strategic Kuweires airbase in the Eastern countryside of Aleppo city, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.

ISIL failed to break through government forces' strongholds near the villages of Nasrallah and al Moltafeteh in Northeastern side of Kuweires airbase.

The Takfiri groups left behind scores of dead or wounded members and destroyed equipment and retreated from the battlefield.

The Syrian Air Force, for its part, targeted ISIL's movements near Kuweires, forcing the terrorist groups to pull back its forces from the battlefront.

Reports said earlier today that Syrian soldiers and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters continued to smash Jeish al Fatah terrorists in the Southern and Southwestern districts of Aleppo.

"Hezbollah fighters traced and targeted a large group of terrorists that were retreating from military academy buildings to safer areas," the sources said, adding, "Scores of Jeish al-Fatah members were killed by Hezbollah fighters and tens of them were killed or injured in Hezbollah-planted landmines and explosive traps on their way."

"The army's artillery units, for their part, shelled a column of Jeish al-Fatah members in al Ramousiyeh district, inflicting major death toll on them," the sources added.

"Hezbollah fighters also gunned down at least five snipers of the terrorist groups near military academy buildings," the sources said.

"Syrian soldiers and Hezbollah launched also new rounds of attacks on Jeish al-Fatah's centers near cement factory towards military academy buildings, while other units of army and Hezbollah stormed terrorists' defense lines near the village of al-Moshrefeh and heights of al Mahrouqat and al-Jam'eiyat," the sources said.

"The pro-government forces cut off the road connecting al-Ramousiyeh to Khan Touman and deployed their forces near height of Um al-Qar'a which overlooks military academy buildings; FNA reported.
