Syrian Army has strongly repelled ISIL attack on highly strategic Kuweires airbase in the eastern part of Aleppo province.

The attack began with suicide car bombs to retake al-Nejjarah village in the northern parts of the Kweiris airbase from the Syrian Army.

The army responded immediately and destroyed the car bombs before they reached the village.

Then, the terrorists were forced to withdraw from the area after sustaining damage and some sporadic conflicts.

Nejjarah village was cleared of militants earlier this week by the Syrian Army and popular forces.

Last Sunday, the Syrian Air Force carried out airstrikes against Daesh positions in the village.

The airstrikes destroyed militants’ weapons and ammunition depots as well as vehicles equipped with machine guns. An unspecified number of terrorists were also killed.

In November 2015, the Syrian Army, popular forces, and Hezbollah forces backed by Syrian and Russian airstrikes lifted a two-and-a-half-year long siege of the Kweiris military base, having killed hundreds of Daesh terrorists; Sputnik reported.
