The Syrian Ground and Air Forces’ joint operations to thwart the terrorist groups’ large-scale attacks in the Southern part of Aleppo province did not leave any chance for the militants to remain in the village of al-Khalediyeh for more than two-three hours, several military sources said.

"The terrorists of al-Nusra Front, Jund al-Aqsa, Harakat Ahrar al-Sham, Ajnad al-Sham, Faylaq al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army, who had launched massive joint offensives to capture the town of Khan Touman, captured the village of al-Khalidiyeh for a few hours but the heavy fire of the Syrian Army and Hezbollah fighters, backed up by the country's fighter jets, forced them to retreat from the village," the sources informed.

"The terrorist groups suffered a heavy death toll and fled the village and its surroundings to evade more casualties," they added.

Al-Khalediyeh is fully under the control of the Syrian government forces.

Earlier reports said that the Syrian army troops and the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement's fighters fended off the terrorist groups' offensives in Southern and Southwestern parts of Aleppo province and killed over 30 of them.

The terrorists groups' attempts to break through the government forces' positions near the strategic town of Khan Touman along Aleppo-Damascus highway, Zaytan and Birnah were thwarted by the strong defense of the Syrian soldiers and their Lebanese allies.

Over 30 terrorists were killed and their tanks and machinegun-equipped vehicles were destroyed in their failed attacks.

The terrorist groups left behind their wounded or dead members and fled the battlefield, FNA reported.
