The Syrian army on Friday (2016-10-07) recaptured strategic hilltop of Sheikh Saeed, overlooking rebel-held districts in the northern city of Aleppo, as part of a broad offensive the army waged recently to flush the terrorist out of Aleppo, SANA reported.

Capturing the Sheikh Saeed Hill has enabled the Syrian army to overlook the rebel-held districts of Amiriyeh and Sukariyeh in the Cement Factory in eastern Aleppo, according to the report.

The fresh advance is the latest in a series of victories the Syrian army has recently achieved in Aleppo, as part of the declared offensive to dislodge the insurgents from the rebel-held eastern part of Aleppo.

A day earlier SANA said the military forces captured areas in the rebel-held Bustan al-Basha neighborhood, and Al Sakhour area.
