TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army troops continued to advance against Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in areas surrounding the town of Anadan, capturing a key hill.
The army men engaged in fierce clashes with Al-Nusra in Northern Aleppo and managed to take back control of al-Mo’askar hill that overlooks directly the town of Anadan.
The Al-Nusra suffered heavy casualties in the army attack.
A military source reported last week that the Syrian soldiers launched heavy attacks on terrorists’ positions in the Northwestern parts of Aleppo city near al-Yarmoun industrial halls, the Western parts of al-Zahra district and near the Family House region and Shuwaiheneh hills.
He underlined that if the Syrian army could retake control of Tal Shuwaiheneh hills, the Western parts of Aleppo province would be separated from its North and the terrorists’ supply routes from the towns in Northern Aleppo would be cut off. The army was busy to get ready for launching an assault to capture the town of Anadan in the same region.
The army units also targeted the terrorists’ positions in the Southern parts of al-Tamoureh village in Northern Aleppo with missile and artillery fire, destroying one of the militants’ bases in Tal al-Ma’askar and killing and wounding several of them.
