The Syrian Army, backed by allied forces, launched this morning an intense attack on Islamic State outposts to the south of the Kweires airbase in the eastern countryside of the northern city of Aleppo.

Fierce battles were reported in the area before the government forces managed to oust the terror organization from Umm Arkilah village.

Having imposed full control of the village, the Army troops are now demining the IEDs left by the jihadi militants.

Earlier, the Syrian Army seized al-Qutbiyah to the north of Sabkhat al-Jabul.
