Military sources have announced on Sunday that the Syrian army has established control over Khan Touman town and Qarassi village in the southern countryside of Aleppo province.

“During the past few hours, army units carried out special and swift operations, establishing full control over Qarassi village and the surrounding warehouses,” the source told SANA.

Later on the day, the source added, the army units and supporting forces established control over Khan Touman town and the surrounding farms, with the area considered one of the largest gatherings of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists.

The terrorists in the abovementioned areas suffered heavy losses in personnel and equipment and the army units dismantled the explosive devices and mines planted there.

On December 12, the villages of Mreiqis, Abo Rueil, Qreihiyeh, al-Sueibiyeh and Dallameh to the south of al-Arbaeen Hill in Aleppo southern countryside came under the army’s control.

In the same context, an army unit targeted terrorists’ positions in al-Zirbeh town, 20 km to the southwest of Aleppo city.

In Aleppo city, the army destroyed hideouts for Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in the neighborhoods of Bani Zaid, al-Ramousa, al-Lairamoun and Karm al-Trab.

In the eastern countryside of Aleppo, army units hit sites and movements of ISIS terrorists in al-Shawaia Hill and in Bijan and Rasm al-Sahrij villages.

A number of vehicles, some equipped with machine guns, were destroyed in the army operations, while many terrorists were killed. Sana reported.
