Nouralddeen al-Zinki members and other terrorists of Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board) engaged in a fresh round of clashes in Aleppo and Idlib provinces, inflicting over 100 casualties on both warring sides, dissident-affiliated websites reported on Monday.

The websites reported that Al-Nusra and al-Zinki terrorist groups engaged in fierce clashes in Western Aleppo and Southern Idlib, leaving over 100 fighters dead from both sides.

In the meantime, Nouralddeen al-Zinki managed to drive Al-Nusra from the village of Taqad in Western Aleppo.

Nouralddeen al-Zinki members have gained control over most of the district in the town of Dar al-Izzah in Northern Aleppo.

Former Mufti (religious leader) of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at said that his attempts to end infighting between Al-Nusra and al-Zinki in Aleppo and Idlib have failed.

Relevant reports said on Sunday that the Nouralddeen al-Zinki pushed Al-Nusra terrorists back from the village of al-Sa'adiyeh, Dar al-Izzah court and al-Konj checkpoint near the town of Dar al-Izzah that is the largest checkpoint in Western Aleppo.

In the meantime, Al-Nusra fighters seized the power generator in the Agriculture school that was supplying potable water to the small town of al-Abzamu's residents.

Also, clashes erupted between al-Zinki and Al-Nusra in areas near the towns of Orum al-Kobra and Taqad in Western Aleppo.

A large number of members of both warring sides, including Al-Nusra's Mufti (religious leader) Abu Mojahed Mesri, were killed in the clashes.

Iran military chief says Daesh on last legs on visit to Aleppo

The Iranian military chief has praised successful counter-terrorism operations during a visit to a frontline position near the Syrian city of Aleppo, saying the terrorists are taking their last breath in the country.

“The life of terrorist groups is coming to an end,” said Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri during a meeting with military advisors and armed forces involved in battles against terrorists in Syria, ISNA reported.

The senior military official further described “unity” and “exemplary coordination” among the Syrian army and its allied forces as the key factors behind the “successive” gains they have made against the terrorists.

Baqeri further expressed hope that the Syrian forces and allied fighters will continue to hold the upper hand in the fight against the Takfiri militants.

Since his arrival in Syria on Wednesday, the Iranian general has held talks with senior Syrian military officials.

On Thursday, he also met with President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, where the two sides exchanged views on the battles against terrorism.

Iran, along with Russia, has a military advisory mission in Syria aimed at strengthening its army on the battlefield against terrorism. Moscow has also been providing air cover to Syria’s ground offensives. Syrian forces are also receiving assistance from fighters of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement.

Backed by their allies, Syrian government forces have managed to deal heavy blows to terrorist groups, which have been wreaking havoc on the Arab nation since early 2011.

Syria army liberates more areas near one of Daesh’s last strongholds in Aleppo: Group

Syrian army troops have made further advances in the strategic northern province of Aleppo, liberating 12 villages and districts near one of the last strongholds of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group in the province, a monitoring group says.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Thursday that the territorial gains had been made in the vicinity of al-Jarrah military airport, located about four kilometers from the northern Syrian town of Maskanah, on the eastern outskirts of Aleppo.

The group further said that the Syrian air force had pushed the Takfiri terrorists out of the area. Figures were not made available on possible casualties on the side of Daesh.

Syria has been gripped by unrest since March 2011. An assortment of militant groups supported by regional and extra-regional countries has been fighting inside Syria against the government in Damascus.

The United Nations (UN)’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimated last August that more than 400,000 people had been killed in the crisis until then.

Recent agreements between Damascus and the opposition have led to a major reduction in fighting. But terrorist groups, excluded from the agreements, continue to be targeted by the Syrian army.

Terrorist Walid Hendi confessed to taking part in fabricating videos and photos for a Turkish TV channel while working with the so-called “White Helmets” that depict neighborhoods and areas in Aleppo being attacked with chemical weapons in order to blame the Syrian Arab Army.

In confessions broadcast by the Syrian TV on Saturday evening, al-Hendi said that he joined the “white Helmets” three years ago in return for receiving funds from the so-called “local council” and financers from Arab countries.

Hendi said that they were told that there will be chemical attacks, and they were given protective clothing and they staged a fake chemical attack that was filmed by a Turkish channel, adding that they were filmed by two people called Ibrahim al-Haj and Mohammad al-Sayyed as they sounded sirens and brought stretchers to transport supposed injured people, with the intent of posting these videos online and accuse the Syrian Arab Army of carrying out a chemical attack.

The terrorist also confessed to taking part in fabricating videos and photos depicting alleged attacks several times.

A Russian diplomatic and military source had revealed on May 4 that reporters working for Qatar’s Al Jazeera TV filmed a fake chemical attack against civilians in Idlib province in order to blame the Syrian Army.

In turn, terrorist Imad Abdeljawad said in similar confessions that terrorists in Aleppo possessed toxic chemicals and that he took part in transporting them.

Abdeljawad said that he was asked to transport what was claimed to be cleaning agents from al-Sukkari neighborhood to al-Ameriya neighborhood to cover up the fact that they were actually transporting dangerous chemicals, adding that after unloading materials from two cars and starting with the third, they wanted to know what materials they were transporting because their smells was agitating, particularly since he suffered asthma.

He went on to say that he saw people in silvery clothing, protective masks, and long boots transporting the materials to a basement, and they looked through windows and saw them opening barrels and pouting a liquid from them into cylinders, and when the man in charge of the terrorists noticed that Abdeljawad and his cohorts were watching he expelled them and prevented them from bearing arms.

Back in January, army engineering units uncovered while combing the Old City neighborhoods in Aleppo an amount of chemical materials of Saudi origin left behind by terrorists, which included sulfur, chlorine, and other materials.

Hundreds of Syrians have attended a funeral procession for those killed in a recent deadly bomb attack outside the Syrian city of Aleppo that targeted buses carrying evacuees from the militant-besieged Shia-majority towns of Kefraya and al-Foua.

The mourners performed prayers in the shrine of Sayyidah Zaynab, the granddaughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and laid the victims to rest in a cemetery in the town with the same name just outside the capital Damascus on Wednesday.

"Today, there will be funeral services for 52 of the dead, after they were identified. They will be buried in a cemetery near the shrine," said an organizer of the funeral.
At least 150 people, including 72 children, were killed on April 15, when a bomb attack hit buses waiting in the militant-held al-Rashideen district on the outskirts of Aleppo to cross into government-controlled territory.

A bomb exploded in Aleppo's Salah al-Din district on Wednesday, killing six and wounding 32 people, Syrian State Television reported.

The number of casualties was provided by the General Organization of Radio and TV news correspondent via social media, who classified the blast as a terrorist bombing, Sputnik reported.

Salah al-Din is located west of Aleppo's Old City. The district used to be the last territory held by militants until it was taken over by the Syrian army in December.

The blast came while the evacuation operation of residents of two Shiite villages was underway a few miles away in Rashidin, a southwestern suburb of the city.

On April 15, a blast occurred near a bus convoy evacuating residents of the besieged Shiite towns of Foua and Kefraya to Aleppo. Around 126 people were reportedly killed, with many women and at least 60 children among them.

On December 22, as the last militants left eastern Aleppo, the Syrian army gained full control over the city. Syrian President Bashar Assad called the liberation of Aleppo a "watershed moment."

The UN Children’s Fund has condemned the killing of more than 60 children in a recent Aleppo bomb attack targeting evacuees.

“After six years of war and human carnage in Syria… six years of heartbreak for so many Syrian families… there comes a new horror that must break the heart of anyone who has one,” the statement by UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake said.

“More than 60 children reportedly killed in an attack on a bus convoy yesterday outside Aleppo. A convoy of families who for so long had already known so much suffering. Now the survivors must bear such a new and terrible loss,” the statement added, RT reported.

Lake urged not only for regret, but for action to ensure that the war ends soon, saying, “We must draw from this not only anger, but renewed determination to reach all the innocent children throughout Syria with help and comfort. And draw from it also the hope that all those with the heart and the power to end this war will do so.”

Pope Francis has sent 100,000 euros ($106,000) to the poor in the ravaged Syrian city of Aleppo, a Vatican spokeswoman said in a statement Friday.

The Vatican administration, known as the Curia, contributed to the donation, which will be made through the papal charity office and the Franciscan order working in the Holy Land, Reuters reported.

On December 15, Syria announced the liberation of Aleppo from the foreign-backed terrorists, with President Bashar al-Assad praising the victory as “history in the making and worthy of more than the word congratulations.”

The Syrian security forces had encircled Aleppo in July 2016 after closing off the last terrorist-controlled route into the city.

Over the past almost six years, Syria has been fighting foreign-sponsored militancy. UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimated in August that more than 400,000 people had been killed in the Syrian crisis until then. The UN has stopped its official casualty count in Syria, citing its inability to verify the figures it receives from various sources.

Syrian government forces retook an airbase in the country’s northern province of Aleppo from Takfiri Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) terrorists.

A military source said Daesh terrorists withdrew from the small al-Jarrah military airport on Thursday as Syrian troopers launched an attack to reestablish control over it, Press TV reported.

Separately, Syrian army soldiers seized back control of 19 towns and villages on the eastern outskirts of the city of Aleppo. Among the liberated areas were Khafiya al-Hamar, al-Raihaniyah, Harna Shahab, and Ma’arba.

Syrian fighter jets also carried out a string of airstrikes against Daesh positions in the villages of al-Boeida Qlieb al-Thour and al-Lweibda in the west-central province of Hama.

More than 40 terrorists were killed and injured in the airstrikes. Seven pickup trucks, some equipped with 23mm-caliber machine guns, were destroyed as well.

Syrian jets bombarded the positions of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham militant group — formerly known as al-Nusra Front — in the town of Kafr Zita and the village of al-Sayyiad. At least 13 terrorists were killed and more than 15 others were injured in the process.

Moreover, aerial attacks in al-Masasnieh Village left six Nusra Front militants dead and seven others injured.

Elsewhere, in the town of Khan Shaykhun in the northwestern province of Idlib, Syrian government forces killed five Nusra Front terrorists in a special operation.

On Monday, Syrian soldiers and allied fighters restored security and stability to 18 villages, including Jarkes, al-Ismailiyah, Abajah, Mazra’a Abajah and Abu Tinah, killing a large number of Daesh extremists, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.
