The Syrian and Russian warplanes pounded terrorists' gathering centers in Aleppo province, and inflicted heavy losses on the militants over the past 24 hours.

The aerial bombardments killed and wounded scores of terrorists in Aleppo province.

The Syrian army also inflicted heavy losses on the terrorist groups in other key regions across Syria.


The Syrian army and popular forces, backed by the Russian air force, continued their attacks against the terrorists in areas Northeast of Aleppo and seized control over several strategic regions.

Media sources reported that the Syrian army troops won control of Manasher al-Brij, Mojbal al-Nazarat, al-Arz al-Hamra and a number of plants near Jandoul square while clashes still continue between them and the militants.

The Russian fighter jets also targeted the terrorists' positions in Hananou, al-Heidariyeh, al-Bae'din square and Arz al-Hamra districts, the sources said, and added the their air assault destroyed militants' weapons and equipment and inflicted tens of casualties on them.

Earlier reports on Saturday said that the Syrian army soldiers and popular forces cut off Jeish al-Fatah's key supply route to Northeastern Aleppo, forcing terrorists in at least three districts of the city to face an acute shortage of arms and ammunition supplies.

"Syrian government forces marched on terrorists' positions in al-Brij and Mojbal al-Nazarat in the Northern side of Aleppo and, meantime, seized control over a strategic road in the Eastern outskirts of the city used by the terrorist groups to transfer arms and ammunition cargos to Jeish al-Fatah's positions in the Northeastern and Northern districts of Aleppo," military sources said.

Following these advances in the North and the cut-off of the supply route in the East, now the army has the upper-hand in the frontline along Hananou Youth Housing Complex, Hananou and al-Nazarat region, according to the source.


Syrian military forces repelled terrorist groups' attacks on their positions near a village North of Quneitra, and inflicted, at least, 20 casualties on the militants.

Terrorists' assaults to break through government positions near the village of Tal al-Shahm were repulsed by the soldiers of the 4th division of the Syrian Army.

Terrorist groups left behind 20 dead bodies and retreated from the battlefield. An unspecified number of militants were also wounded in the clashes, reports said.

Also in the same region, the Syrian army's artillery units opened heavy fire at the terrorists' centers near the village of Mas'hareh, inflicting several casualties on the militants.


The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed on Saturday that the terrorist groups in the Southern province of Daraa have received a large number of man-portable air-defense systems (MANPAD) that have been paid for by their regional Arab backers.

"The terrorist groups in Northern Daraa have received hundreds of 9K32 Strela-2, also known as SA-7 Grail," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

"The regional Arab countries have spent a large amount of money to purchase 9K32 Strela-2, that is called Cobra by the militants, from East European countries," it added.

"The terrorist groups in Dael in Northern Daraa have used Cobra to target Syrian military aircraft," the report pointed out.

9K32 Strela-2 is used to target low-attitude flying planes.

"In the meantime, thousands of US-made TWO missiles and Gard have been delivered to the terrorists groups across Syria," the SOHR confirmed.

Deir Ezzor

The Syrian army thwarted an attack by the ISIL on the government forces' military positions in the city of Deir Ezzor, and killed several terrorists, including a senior commander.

The ISIS tried to penetrate into al-Amal, al-Jubeileh and al-Sanaeh regions in Deir Ezzor by prevailing over the government forces' positions in the city, but the attack was forcefully pushed back by the Syrian army units deployed in the regions.

Abu Mohajer Maghrebi, a notorious ISIL commander, was among the several terrorists killed in the clashes near the village of al-Mariyeh in the surrounding areas of Deir Ezzor airport.

The Syrian army also destroyed three ISIS military vehicles in the battle in Deir Ezzor city, FNA reported.
