The Syrian army units have retaken vast areas of the aviation technical college in the military academy buildings in Southwestern Aleppo, a field commander said on Thursday.
"Heavy clashes are underway between the Syrian army and Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in the region, in which dozens of terrorists have been killed," the commander was qouted as saying by the Arabic service of Sputnik news agency.
"The militants, using wireless devices, have called on their leaders to send more forces to the military academy region to be able to stand against the Syrian army," he added.
The commander said that the Syrian army and resistance forces have driven out the terrorists from several strategic buildings in military academy by continued operations in the region.
Military sources announced on Wednesday that the Syrian army troops and their popular allies continued to push Jeish al-Fatah militants back from more positions in Housing Project 1070 and military academy buildings.
“70 percent of the aviation technical collage and 80 percent of project 1070 are under the control of the Syrian government forces,” the sources said.
“New advances of the Syrian Army in Aleppo districts have cut off narrow corridors of Jeish al-Fatah to the Central part of Aleppo city,” they added.
“Over 55 terrorists have been killed in army attacks in al-Amareh, al-Mahrouqat, and Um al-Qara’a,” they went on to say.
“The government forces have liberated al-Senobarat heights and are fortifying their positions there,” the sources said.
