The Syrian Army troops continued military operations against the ISIL terrorists in the Eastern parts of Aleppo and seized control of several towns and a key height, paving the ground for the liberation of the strategic town of Deir Hafer.
The army soldiers stormed ISIL’s positions near Deir Hafer and managed to seize control over the towns of Abu Jarin, Tal Ma’ez and Rasm al-Kabar, killing a large number of terrorists, including 23 militants in Abu Jarin only.
A field source said that the pro-government forces reached the strategic al-Sous hill following their advances in the Northern flank of Deir Hafer, adding that with the army control over al-Sous hill, the entire Deir Hafer and ISIL’s movements in the Northern and Eastern direction of the town have fallen under the control of the army soldiers.
In relevant developments in the province on Friday, the Syrian pro-government forces continued to push ISIL terrorists out of more positions and captured vast areas near the newly-liberated town of Za’araya and the towns of al-Roufiyeh and al-Rowzeh along the road to Um Al-Amd.
Army reports said ISIL suffered heavy casualties and its military equipment sustained major damage in the attacks.
In the meantime, the Syrian Army’s Joint Staff announced that government troops have deployed in the regions under the control of the Manbij Military Council Southwest of the town of Manbij.
