In a fresh round of joint combat flights, the Syrian fighter jets backed by the Russian air force have targeted the ISIS concentration centers and gatherings in the Eastern part of Aleppo province, inflicting a heavy death toll on the militants.

At least 40 ISIS members were killed and many more were wounded in the joint airstrikes of the Syrian and Russian jets in Maskana plains in the Eastern part of Aleppo province bordering the Western part of Raqqa province.

In addition to their airstrikes over the Maskanah plains, the Russian Air Force targeted the ISIS strongholds in Deir Hafer and al-Bab, killing a large number of terrorist there.

In relevant developments on Wednesday a massive operation by several terrorist groups to take control of a number of towns in Western Aleppo ended up in a fiasco after a crushing counter-attack by pro-government forces on Wednesday.

An alliance of al-Shamia Front, Ahrar al-Sham, al-Nusra Front and Ajnad al-Sham terrorist groups started massive operations to seize back Barna, Zeytan, Khan Touman, al-Khalediyeh and al-Aziza in Western and Southwestern parts of Aleppo province, but they were pushed back by the Syrian army and popular forces.

At least 40 terrorists were killed in several hours of heavy exchange of fire with the Syrian government troops and popular forces.

A large number of terrorists fled the scene of the bloody clashes after losing tens of their comrades in pro-government troops' unexpectedly powerful defense and counterpunch, leaving behind their armored and military vehicles, FNA reported.
