Syrian Armed Forces carried out a series of large-scale operations against the militants in the countryside of Aleppo and Damascus on Saturday, leaving a large number of them killed and injured.
The army inflicted heavy losses upon the militants in Manbihj, Deir Hafer, Ehras, Kilah, Sheikh Amad, al-Haidarioyeh, Sulaiman al-Halabi and Binyamin areas in Aleppo and its countryside, a military source told SANA.
The brave Syrian soldiers targeted six vehicles loaded with ammunition in Kafer Hamra, Deir Hafer, al-Jandoul and al-Rashidin areas, killing scores of them and injuring others.
Insurgents' hideouts in the countryside of Damascus were also stormed in in the farms of Khan al-Sheih and al-Husainiyeh. Too many rebels lost their lives.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
