Earlier on Wednesday, sources said the Syrian Army and its allies have significantly advanced against the ISIS militants in the Eastern part of Aleppo province and have won back the important Humaymah hilltop.
The sources said that the Syria army, the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters continued their joint anti-terrorism operation near the town of Humaymah al-Kabeera, and seized control over the strategic Tal Humaymah after fierce clashes with the Takfiri terrorists.
