The Syrian army and popular forces, backed by artillery units, continued to advance in the Southern parts of Aleppo on Thursday after taking control of Khan Touman's warehouses.
Concurrent with the army operations, the air force pounded the terrorists' gathering centers in Khan Touman and the nearby areas as well as Ma'arata in the Southwestern parts of the military academy region.
They also launched airstrikes on Kafar Hamra and Hurayatyn in the Northern parts of Aleppo as well as Kafar Naha, Sheikh Sulaiman and Kafar Daesh in the Western parts of the province.
Earlier today, the Syrian army units launched a preemptive strike on the terrorists of the so-called Aleppo Operations Room in their gathering centers near Castello road in the Northern areas of Aleppo and Mallah farms, foiling their plots to attack the region's supply route, a source said.
The source said that the army's artillery units attacked the terrorists' gathering centers near Castello and Mallah farms in Zahra Abdo Rabbah, Kafar Hamra and Hurayatyn which killed and wounded dozens of militants.
Also, the Syrian air force attacked the terrorists' supply route in Northern Aleppo towards Hayyan and Adnan as well as the supply roads in Western Aleppo towards the North and smashed the terrorists' convoys in al-Aratab, Urom Kobra and Ma'ara al-Artiq which thwarted the terrorists' plots and forced many of them flee towards the Turkish borders.
Informed media sources disclosed on Wednesday that the Syrian army has continued its advances in the Southern part of Aleppo, and regained control over several strategic areas in the town of Khan Touman.
"A number of key warehouses of Khan Touman are now under the Syrian army's control," the Arabic-language media quoted an unnamed informed source as saying.
The source noted that the Syrian air force and army's artillery units also targeted the gathering centers and fortifications of the terrorists in Khan Touman.
