Syrian Army Enters Helicopter Airfield North of Newly-Recaptured Marj Al-Sultan Airbase
TEHRAN (FNA) – The Syrian Army and popular forces on Friday continued to push back the militant groups from the Northern part of Marj al-Sultan airbase in Damascus countryside and seized back part of the helicopter airfield from the terrorists.

The Syrian army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Damascus city and the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), broke-through Jeish al-Islam’s (Army of Islam) defense lines at the Marj Al-Sultan army terrain and reached the strategic helicopter airfield that is situated just South of the Marj Al-Sultan village in Damascus countryside.

The Republican Guard and their allies reportedly fractured Jeish Al-Islam’s defenses after 16 straight hours of intense firefights that resulted in several casualties and the destruction of heavy equipment for both sides involved in this violent battle.

According to a military source inside the Syrian capital, the Syrian Armed Forces suffered 18 soldiers killed-in-action (KIA) and another 31 wounded-in-action (WIA) while trying to penetrate Jeish Al-Islam’s defenses; however, despite the death toll, the Republican Guard and their allies were able to fight through this rough terrain and reach the wide-open helicopter airfield.

If the Syrian Armed Forces capture the helicopter airfield at the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airbase, they will be in prime position to assault the Marj Al-Sultan village that is situated to the north of the base.

The Marj Al-Sultan region of the East Ghouta has been under the control of the militants since 2012; it was one of the first sites captured by them.

On Thursday, Syrian army forces entered Marj al-Sultan military airbase in Eastern Ghouta, the second airport taken back by the pro-government troops in the last several days, following Kuweires airbase in the Eastern countryside of the Northern city of Aleppo.

According to a military source, the Syrian Armed Forces launched large-scale attack on Jeish al-Islam’s defenses on the army base located at the Western sector of Deir Salman and took full control over this military installation at the Southern perimeter of the Marj al-Sultan Airbase.

Following the capture of the army base, the Syrian soldiers and their allies pushed towards the army terrain that is situated to the South of the helicopter fields, capturing half of the area. Syrian forces were to make a push towards the helicopter fields on Thursday.

The Syrian army launched operations on Wednesday to win back control over Marj al-Sultan airbase after its groundbreaking victory in the battle against ISIL in Aleppo that ended up with the removal of a 2.5-year-long siege of the Kuweires airbase on Tuesday.

The military operations started on Tuesday when the Syrian army advanced against the Takfiri terrorists in Eastern Ghouta and retook strategic areas from the foreign-backed militants.

Syrian Army, Hezbollah Marching on ISIL Positions East of Aleppo
 
TEHRAN (FNA) The Syrian army and Hezbollah fighters are carrying out mop up operations in the Eastern countryside of Aleppo, pushing back more ISIL terrorists from the strategic province, field sources said Friday.

The ISIL terrorists’ positions near the villages of Jib al-Safa, Ain al-Jamajma, Wadiaa, Um Arkila, al-Madyouneh, Tal Abu Danneh and al-Bab city in the Eastern and Northeastern countryside of Aleppo came under joint offensive of the Syrian army and Hezbollah fighters, sources said, and added that scores of the militants have been killed in the army attacks.

Source said earlier today that the Syrian Army alongside Hezbollah fighters continued to hunt down ISIL militants in regions close to the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa highway.

The sources said that the Syrian army’s 2nd Division, in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo city, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) and  Harakat Al-Nujaba carried out a powerful assault along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway and targeted the ISIL defensive positions at the Sisako Factory and the large chemical production facility that is located across this roadway.

The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies advanced 4.5km along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway, seizing the chemical production facility after an intense series of firefights with the ISIL terrorists.

The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are currently positioned at the Sisako Factory, where they are in a heated battle for control of this facility that is situated approximately 3.5km away from the strategic Aleppo Thermal Plant in the Aleppo province’s Eastern countryside.

The Aleppo Thermal Plant is strategically positioned between the Kuweires Military Airport and the Al-Safira District of Aleppo city; if captured, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies can obstruct ISIL’ only supply route to their fighters in the Western side of the Deir Hafer Plains.

The Syrian army, popular forces and Hezbollah forces, backed up by Syrian and Russian air force, lifted the two and a half-year-long siege of Kuweires military airbase after killing hundreds of ISIL terrorists on Tuesday.

The Syrian troops and Hezbollah forces rolled into the Kuweires airport at the end of their daylong last phase of massive operations.

The Syrian army, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah combatants, backed up by Russian warplanes, launched the last round of their over one-month-long joint operations against the ISIL terrorists’ positions in Eastern Aleppo near the Kuweires airbase Tuesday morning, and won full control over the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

The attack started from multiple directions and ended up in cleaning up several villages from ISIL. Hundreds of the ISIL militants were killed or wounded in the operations.

In the next stage, Syrian and Russian Air Forces massively targeted the last strongholds of the ISIL militants around the Kuweires airbase.

In addition to the Syrian and Russian airstrikes, the artillery and mortar units of the army also shelled the ISIL strongholds to weaken their defense lines as much as possible to lay the ground for the combatants of Hezbollah, the army soldiers and the National Defense Forces to launch the final phase of their joint operations to lift the siege on Kuweires airbase.

Intelligence sources said hundreds of ISIL militants were fleeing the Kuweires region to safer areas to save their lives after suffering heavy casualties in the joint massive attack of the Syrian Army and Hezbollah with the Russian air backup.

After cleaning the region, the pro-government troops had to defuse a minefield planted by the ISIL before they could reach the gates of airbase.

Al-Nusra Front’s Emir Killed in Syria’s Yarmouk Refugee Camp
TEHRAN (FNA)- A suicide bomber killed the leader and deputy leader of the Al-Nusra Front Takfiri terrorist group in Yarmouk Palestinian Refugee Camp in Damascus on Friday.

Abu Youssef al-Hourani was killed by a suicide bomber who approached him and blew himself up in Hamdan Street in Yarmouk camp today, the Arabic-language Al-Arabiya TV reported on Friday. Al-Hourani’s deputy was also killed during the attack.

The Yarmouk crisis started in 2012 when the terrorist groups took control of the Palestinian refugee camp and displaced over one million Palestinians. The terrorist groups have been trying to make the Yarmouk camp and its surrounding areas the main center of their operations.

Palestinian forces inside Yarmouk are largely surrounded by the ISIL fighters who have captured large swathes of the camp since an assault that began earlier this month.

In early April, a group of 14 Palestinian factions backed a joint military operation with the Syrian government to expel the ISIL terrorists from the Yarmouk refugee camp in Southern Damascus.

The factions support “a security solution that will be carried out in partnership with the Syrian state,” Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official Ahmed Majdalani said.

Also in early April, the ISIL was reported to be in control of a “large part” of the camp after fighting with Palestinian groups who also opposed to President Bashar Assad’s forces.

An agreement last year between terrorists and the government, backed by Palestinian factions, led to an easing of the siege, but humanitarian access has remained limited.

Several Senior ISIL Commanders Killed in Deir Ezzur
TEHRAN (FNA)- At least 60 ISIL terrorists, including several senior commanders, were killed by the Syrian defenders of Deir Ezzur airbase, East of the country, sources said on Friday.

The lead commander of operations at the Deir Ezzur airbase, Abu Hamza Al-Tounisi (Tunisian), was reportedly killed by the Syrian Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard after he attempted to lead the charge on the latter’s defensive positions at the airbase, the sources said.

Not much is known about Abu Hamza Al-Tounisi; however, according to Syrian military intelligence, he was one of the ISIL’s most trusted commanders and a dear friend of Ibrahim Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (ISIL leader).

The death of Abu Hamza Al-Tounisi wasn’t the only commander that the ISIL lamented on Thursday: Abu Mohammad Al-Hamwi and Abu Umar Al-Baghdadi (Iraqi) were also killed by the Syrian army’s 104th Brigade at the Deir Ezzur airbase after their failed infiltration attempt.

Thursday marked the bloodiest day this week in Deir Ezzur, as the ISIL suffered over 60 casualties during their failed bid to infiltrate into the Deir Ezzur Military Airport and the Sina’a district of the provincial capital.

Three other important ISIL members were killed on Thursday, including ISIL’s Chief Spokesman in Deir Ezzor Abu Khattab Al-Shami, and two foreign field commanders “Abu Umar Al-Tajiki” (Tajikistani) and “Abu Mahrous Al-Jabari” (Saudi).
