Syrian Army repels al-Nusra offensive near border with Turkey, cuts off supply line to mercenary-terrorists in Western Raqqa, detonates Daesh tunnels in Deir Ezzur — the real Syrian Free Press
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. The Syrian army troops repelled ISIL’s continued attacks to open a new supply route from Southeastern Aleppo and Northeastern Hama to save its under-attack forces in Western Raqqa. The ISIL attacks on the government forces’ positions along the road connecting Ithriya in Hama to Khanasser in Aleppo were repelled by the Syrian soldiers. The ISIL tried hard to access chunks of this road to transfer foodstuff, fuel, ammunition and arms to its forces in al-Tabaqa via al-Badiyeh region. The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll in the failed attacks. Military sources said on Monday that dozens of ISIL terrorists were killed or wounded after the Syrian army’s engineering units detonated two tunnels, filled by explosive materials, under their positions in the Eastern city of Deir Ezzur.
