The Syrian army and the popular forces continued their advances in the Northern part of Aleppo province, and took full control over a key road.

The Syrian troops seized back Ma'arasta-Masqan road in Northern Aleppo after inflicting heavy losses on the militants.

Scores of militants were killed and injured and their military hardware was destroyed.

Northern Aleppo is the scene of tough battles between the government forces and militants near Nubl and al-Zahra.

In addition to the significant advances of the Syrian government forces' victories in the Eastern territories of Aleppo, the Syrian army and its allies are engaged in a heavy battle in the Northern and Northwestern parts of the province to remove the militants' siege on the towns of Nubl and al-Zahra.

Also today, the Syrian Army and popular forces, in a rapid joint offensive, surprised the ISIL terrorists and drove them back from their strongholds near two small towns in the Eastern countryside of Aleppo city.

The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) continued to advance against the ISIL and won back the small town of As Sin in the Western part of the newly-liberated al-Maksour and the village of al-Uweinat.

Tens of the ISIL combatants were killed or wounded in the pro-government forces' assault and their military hardware and vehicles were damaged, FNA reported.
