Syrian army is going to start an operation to free the long-besieged towns of Nubbul and al-Zahra in Syria’s Aleppo province.

According to Al-Alam reporter, residents of the surrounding areas have voiced support to the army to help them break the siege which has been making life “harder than can be imagined” for more than 11 months.

Terrorist groups entered these two towns at the beginning of the insurgency in March 2011, but in July 2012 they completely blocked the area letting no food, medicine and supplies to enter. No one could leave the area or enter as well.

In May, a group of a thousand people tried to break the siege, but they were faced with terrorists who attacked the group brutally and killed and arrested many of them.

They beheaded 10 men and hung their heads at the entrance of the area so that no one else would run.

More than 50 thousand people live in these two towns while after the crisis broke out some 15000 people also migrated and set camp in there.

There are daily reports of abduction and killing of citizens in the area by terrorist groups who often film their crimes and post them on the internet.

It is estimated that at least 10 thousand terrorist are currently occupying the towns.

Army is extending its operations in Aleppo which has been scene of vicious killings, abduction and torture of citizens throughout the crisis.

As the government in Syria is struggling with a massive foreign-backed insurgency, US, Britain and their allies are pushing hard to arm the militant groups so that they topple the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
