Syrian forces have killed 167 Takfiri terrorists during battle in the northern province of Aleppo in recent days, a report says.
The terrorists were killed in fierce clashes with the government forces backed by volunteer fighters in the southern Aleppo countryside, Lebanese al-Manar television channel reported on Sunday.
Sources close to Jaish al-Fatah, an ally of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, have admitted that two dozen ringleaders and top militant commanders of the terrorist group were among the 167 terrorists killed across the troubled region.
They also added that five tanks and 34 military vehicles belonging to the terrorists have been destroyed.
According to a report from the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria, the Syrian army has thwarted an offensive launched by al-Nusra in Aleppo province.
“In the northern part of the Aleppo province, near the Syrian-Turkish border, the units of the Syrian Armed Forces have stopped a large-scale offensive of military formations of Jabhat al-Nusra,” the report said.
Syrian forces are currently fighting terrorists on several fronts, including in Aleppo province, which borders Turkey.
