Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan in a telephone conversation with his Syrian counterpart Lieutenant General Fahd Jassim al-Freij on Wednesday felicitated the Syrian army’s victory in the city of Aleppo in Northern Syria.
“I felicitate you, the Syrian government and nation on the occasion of the recent victories of the Syrian army and resistance forces and the seizing back of the Aleppo city from the Takfiri terrorists’ control; it is a turning point in the resistance front’s campaign against terrorism and extremism,” Brigadier General Dehqan said over phone.
The Syrian defense minister, for his part, thanked the Iranian leadership, government and nation for supporting the Syrian army and nations in fighting terrorism.
The two sides also underlined their countries’ firm determination to fight terrorism and extremism.
The Syrian Army’s victories in Eastern Aleppo finally forced militant groups to leave the war-torn city as Jeish Al-Fatah terrorists are now encircled in a very small area left with the only two options of surrender or die, as the terrorist groups in Eastern Aleppo asked the Syrian Army to allow them leave the city for Idlib.
The fighting in Eastern Aleppo has also stopped and the Syrian government has regained control over the territory after the withdrawal of militants from the city was agreed.
The Syrian army units started special operations in Aleppo after several humanitarian pauses declared by Damascus and Moscow to give a chance to the civilian population as well as the militants to leave the Eastern parts of the city through 8 corridors.
District after district have fallen into the hands of the Syrian army soldiers and their allies in the city of Aleppo, as the pro-government troops have recaptured most of the blocks and districts in the Northern and Southern parts of Eastern Aleppo.
Also, tens of thousands of civilians, including hundreds of children and newborn babies, have also left the Eastern part of the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo in recent days, while thousands of militants laid down their arms and left Eastern Aleppo through the special corridor.
Over the recent months, Aleppo has been a battlefield between government forces and numerous terrorist groups, however, in recent weeks, the Syrian Army has made significant gains in Eastern Aleppo and is close to liberating it from the militants.
