The Syrian Army troops repelled attacks of the al-Nusra Front on their strongholds in Northern Aleppo and forced them to retreat from the battlefields without any gain.
“The al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra terrorists stormed defense lines of the pro-government forces near border with Turkey, but the strong defense of the Syrian soldiers did not allow them to advance and caused them to pull forces back from the battlefield,” army sources said.
In the meantime, the terrorist groups’ attacks to capture Halasah in Southwestern Aleppo were repulsed by the Syrian army and popular forces.
In relevant developments in the province on Sunday, the Syrian Army troops opened heavy fire at the gatherings of the ISIL and forced them to retreat from their positions near a main road coming from Hama province to Southeastern Aleppo.
The Syrian military forces repelled the ISIL attacks to penetrate into the government forces’ positions and checkpoints along the strategic road of Ithriya-Khanasser, which ended in the killing or injuring of several militants.
