Terrorists Fleeing to Turkey as Army Advances in Aleppo Province

lido_748

TEHRAN (FNA)- Hundreds of Takfiri terrorists are trying to cross the border to Turkey after losing vast grounds and dozens of their friends in the Syrian army’s massive operations in Northern Aleppo province.

The terrorists have sustained heavy losses as the Syrian army is hunting them down in the Northern part of Aleppo province.

Tens of terrorists have been killed and dozens more have been injured in heavy clashes with the Syrian troops in Northern Aleppo in the past two days as the army conducted massive assaults to win back more villages and towns in the region.

Reports said on Tuesday large groups of militants are fleeing their strongholds in different areas of Northern Aleppo province as the Syrian army announced that it has cut off one of the main supply routes of the militants in the Southern part of Ratyan and al-Zahra in Northwest of the province and laid siege on terrorists in one town and several villages.

“The main supply line of the militants, connecting the towns of Hayyan, Anadan, Haraytan and Maayer, was cut off in the Syrian army attack,” the army said earlier on Tuesday.

“The cut-off supply line will force the terrorists to face a major problem in the Northern and Western parts of the province, specially in these days that the government forces have launched a massive operation to liberate Nubl and al-Zahra,” the army added.

In the meantime, the army said that the militant groups’ bases near Ratyan and Hayyan came under heavy missile fire of the Syrian army, which inflicted major losses on the terrorists.

Reports said earlier today that the Syrian army and the popular forces completed siege of the town of Ratyan and the terrorists are now trapped in the town with no way to escape.

“The Syrian army troops, National Defense Forces (NDF), Kata’eb Hezbollah (Iraqi paramilitary) and Harakat al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) have continued to advance against the militant groups in the different sides of Ratyan and even several special forces of the army have infiltrated the terrorists’ defense lines in the town’s neighborhoods,” the army said.

“Fall of Ratyan into the hands of the pro-government forces is imminent,” the army added.

“With the completion of siege on Ratyan, the pro-government forces have only two kilometers to reach al-Zahra and Nubl,” the army went on to say.

“Most of the trapped militants in Ratyan are the members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front,” the army said.

“The government forces have seized full control over the vast farms around Ratyan,” the army said, adding, “Tough battle is underway at the outskirts and entrances of Ratyan and the Syrian artillery and warplanes are pounding the militant groups’ positions outside and inside of the town.”

“The terrorist groups’ supplying lines to Ratyan have been the main targets of the Syrian fighter jets and artillery,” the army said.

“The Syrian army’s engineering units have launched a vast operation to defuse the bombs and other types of explosive devices planted by the terrorists across the outskirts of the town,” the army said.

Battlefield source also reported that other units of the Syrian army have stormed the militant groups’ positions near Ma’rasat al-Khan North of the newly-liberated Hardatnin.

Syrian Army Deploys Anti-TOW T-90 Tanks in Aleppo Again

EXCLUSIVE: Syrian Army Deploys Anti-TOW T-90 Tanks in Aleppo Again

TEHRAN (FNA)- The deployment of the Russian T-90 tanks in the ongoing battles against the terrorist groups in Aleppo province in Northern Syria has given the Arab country’s army the upper-hand in the war against the foreign-backed terrorists, the army said.

The Syrian army is using the T-90 tanks in its battles against the terrorists in Aleppo province for a second time in less than two months after it deployed them in Khan Touman in December.

The T-90 tank and its outstanding capability to destroy incoming TOW and M79 missiles appears to be perfect for a theater of war like the one in Syria.

In 4 and a half years of conflict, more than 9,000 BGM-71E3B TOW and M79 anti-tank systems have been introduced in the country. Their capability to easily penetrate T-55 and T-72 tanks is the main reason why the Syrian Arab Army has had so many problems gaining ground in Aleppo province prior to using T-90 tanks.

The great advantage of the T-90MS is its reactive armor and defense systems. It comes equipped with reactive armor blocks like the Kontakt-5, and a system such as the Arena-3 that detects, intercepts and detonates missiles at a distance of 2-3 m from the target makes this tank unique and a much needed upgrade for the Syrian army’s capacity to achieve important victories on the ground.

In December, a senior military analyst said that the Syrian army has benefitted remarkably from the Russian manufactured tanks.

The analyst further added that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants have received TOW anti-tank missiles, and the army could no longer use armored vehicles without advanced explosive reactive armor (ERA).

“Using the advantage of T-90 tanks, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies have surrounded the important towns of Khan Touman and Al-Qarassi near the Aleppo-Damascus Highway,” he went on to say.

The Syrian army troops, the NDF, Kata’eb Hezbollah, (Iraqi paramilitary) and Harakat al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), that launched a joint operation in the Aleppo province’s Northern battlefield on Monday morning, have thus far captured the villages of Hardatnin, Doweir al-Zaytoun and Tal Jabin North of Bashkoy and have now deployed their forces only four kilometers from the entrances of Nubl and al-Zahra.

The Syrian pro-government forces have at least advanced against the militant groups over three kilometers and have decreased their distance to the Nubl and al-Zahra from seven kilometers to four kilometers.

    The annual camel races will be starting much earlier this year.

    Seems like they would be easier to target when on the run.
