Syrian Army wins back two key villages, strategic hilltop in Aleppo

The Syrian army continued its advances in Eastern Aleppo by seizing back two strategic villages and their surrounding areas in fierce clashes with the militants, Fars News Agency reports.

The army units took full control of al-Tayyeba village and its surrounding farms.

The Syrian army also won back Abu Zaneh village, Abu Zaneh hilltop and the surrounding farms which are only 300 meters from the thermal power plant.

Taking back al-Tayyeba and Abu Zaneh villages which are very close to Aleppo thermal power plant will pave the way for taking it back from the militants.

Earlier today, the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) targeted the militant groups’ positions in the Eastern part of Aleppo province and forced them to retreat from their defense lines in at least two villages.

The Syrian pro-government forces, in a several-hour battle, pushed back the militant groups from the villages of Barhlin and al-Jdeidah.

The militants suffered a heavy death toll and their military hardware also sustained major losses.

Reports said earlier today that the militant groups operating in the Northern part of Aleppo province pulled their forces back from one more strategic village under the heavy attacks of the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The YPG fighters continued to advance against the terrorist groups in the Northern battlefields of the country and seized back the village of Ein al-Daqnah in the Eastern side of the village of Minaq in a several-hour battle.
