DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:50 P.M.) – Dozens of Islamic State fighters were killed and wounded in a failed attack they had launched earlier today on Army positions near Khanasser, in the southeastern countryside of Aleppo.

The terror group’s media mouthpiece claimed that its militants have taken over several outposts for the government forces in and around Um Mayyal village to the northeast of Khanasser, killing at least 30 troops.

However, pro-government accounts on social media refuted the claims by posting photos of the jihadists killed and vehicles destroyed in the failed assault.

According to a military source, ISIS attacked the outposts using 10 manned machinegun-mounted trucks early morning, attempting to storm the Army positions.

Unlike the Syrian Army which didn’t suffer any casualties in the failed offensive, 9 fighters from the pro-government Iraqi Harakat al-Nujaba were killed, 4 others reported missing, according to the same source.

“Two ISIS jihadists were captured alive after being wounded in the clashes; one of them is originally from the Syrian coastal city of Baniyas. Four out of ten vehicles have been also completely destroyed, “the source added.
