Syrian Army repels terrorist attacks, kills a ringleader

Damascus, Mar 31 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian Ministry of Defense announced on Friday that two attacks by terrorist groups were repelled in Aleppo and Idlib provinces, northwest of this nation.

Our soldiers clashed with the radicals who attacked military positions in Basrtoun, in western Aleppo, and Al-Dana, near Maarat al-Numan city, in Idlib, the ministry affirmed in a statement.

Several terrorists were eliminated, others were wounded; the body of a ringleader killed during the clashes was removed, the note stated.

On March 24, the Syrian forces repelled a terrorist offensive against military positions in Kafer Amma, east of the al-Atareb community, in western Aleppo, eliminating 11 terrorists, including the leader of the attacking group.

Syria’s national army managed to liberate 56 percent of Idlib during its operations in 2020.

The jihadists still control the remaining area, where hundreds of thousands of civilians are held as human shields.
