TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Syrian army Saturday retook a village that overlooks major rebel-held towns around Aleppo, media reports said.
According to the latest reports coming out of the Arab country, the army entered the village of al-Tamura located on high ground above the towns of Anadan, Hayan and Haritan that have been heavily bombed in recent days, Reuters reported.
The advances came days after the Syrian forces broke a long-running siege by Takfiri militants on the villages of al-Zahraa and Nubul, northwest of Aleppo.
Al-Zahraa and Nubul had been under siege since July 2012. But their residents vigorously resisted to the invaders.
Syria has been entangled in civil war since March 2011, with Takfiri terrorist groups like Daesh controlling parts of it, mostly in the east.
In the past five years, more than 250,000 people have died in Syria -overwhelmingly civilians- and around 4 million Syrians are now refugees in other countries. Around 8 million others have been displaced internally.
