Syrian Army units backed by popular forces thwarted Ahrar al-Sham terrorists’ attack on government forces’ defense lines around a newly-liberated village in the Northern part of Aleppo province, military sources said.

“The newly-liberated Kafin is under full control of the Syrian government forces,” the sources said.

"Ahrar al-Sham's attacks to take back Kafin were repelled by the Syrian army and popular forces," the sources added.

The sources said that Ahrar al-Sham left behind several dead and wounded members and fled the battlefront in order to evade more casualties.

Earlier reports said that the Syrian army and its popular allies drove the militant groups back from more territories in the Northern part of Aleppo province inflicting major losses on the militants.

The militant groups continued to pull back forces from the Northern territories of Aleppo after the Syrian army, the National Defense Forces and other popular fighters stormed the village of Kafin in the Northern part of Mayer.

Scores of the militants were killed or injured in the attacks and meantime their militant equipment and vehicles were damaged.

With the capturing of Kafin, the Syrian government forces have only six kilometers to the town of Tal Rifat and nearly 23 kilometers to the border with Turkey, FNA reported.
