The Syrian army has detected and destroyed a tunnel used by the foreign-backed Takfiri militants in the northwestern city of Aleppo.
According to Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Ahed news website, the Syrian forces destroyed the tunnel in the recently-liberated neighborhood of Farafra, which is situated in the old quarter of Aleppo near the city’s famous citadel.
According to the report, a number of terrorists were killed and injured in the ensuing clashes between the militants and the Syrian forces.
Aleppo has been divided over the past four years between government forces in the west and foreign-backed terrorists in the east, making it a frontline battleground.
Elsewhere in Syria, the country’s warplanes launched airstrikes on positions and concentration centers of the militants as well as their supply routes in several areas, including the villages of Maardes and Atshan, in the countryside of the western city of Hama.
