Syrian army praises breaking siege at Nubbul and Zahraa
DAMASCUS, Feb. 04 (MNA) – General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said breaking the long-time terrorist siege of Nubbul and al-Zahraa towns in Aleppo northern countryside has handed down a debilitating blow to the project of terrorists in the region.
In a statement to SANA, the General Command said the new military win capped a series of successful military operations that saw army units in cooperation with popular defense groups establish control over several towns and villages in Aleppo northern countryside, which eventually ended with breaking the siege of the two towns.
Scores of terrorists were killed in the process, the statement added.
The Command explained that the achievement is particularly important as it cuts off terrorists' supply routes coming from the Turkish borders and sets off a dramatic collapse within their ranks.
Breaking the siege, the statement added, lays the ground for finishing off residual terrorist pockets in Aleppo northern countryside, vowing continued efforts to eliminate terrorism.
