Syrian army forces backed by popular committees have recaptured the Al-Jamiliyah neighborhood in northwestern city of Aleppo from ISIS.

Meanwhile, in another development on the same day, ISIS elements transferred heavy weapons and Christian families from the town of al-Shaddadah, located in Syria’s northeastern province of Al-Hasakah, to the city of Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, also reported that ISIS militants and their families are leaving their command base in Syria’s northern city of Raqqa and moving to the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

There are further reports saying that French and Russian forces have intensified their strikes on positions held by ISIS in Raqqa following the November 13 attacks in the French capital city of Paris, which left 132 people dead and over 350 others injured.

the Syrian army managed to recapture several towns and villages, including the town of al-Ays, situated on the outskirts of Aleppo.

In addition, units of the Syrian army and allied forces killed a number of the Takfiri terrorists’ leaders and destroyed several of their vehicles in intensive operations in the southwestern Dara’a province. They also inflicted heavy losses on the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militant group.

Syrian forces have recently been making rapid advances against terrorists, who are committing heinous crimes against all ethnic and religious groups, in several parts of the crisis-hit country.

The advances of the Syrian government forces against ISIS and other terrorist groups have been expedited by the air cover provided by Russia, which began on September 30 at the request of the Damascus government.

The foreign-backed militancy in Syria, which flared in March 2011, has so far claimed the lives of over 250,000 people and displaced nearly half of the country’s population within or out of its borders.
