    A number of supply routes from Turkey used by Daesh terrorists have reportedly been destroyed by the Syrian army.

    Supported by Syrian and Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Army has managed to destroy an array of supply routes from Turkey used by Daesh militants, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.

    Apart from supply routes, the Syrian forces also destroyed  Daesh strongholds in Aleppo province in the country's north.

    The army's latest offensive came a day after the government troops clashed with Daesh terrorists in the southern countryside of Aleppo, in fighting that reportedly left at least five militants killed.

    In another development, the Syrian warplanes destroyed terrorists' positions in Al-Bab, Jeb Ghabshe and Nejara in the countryside of ‪‎Aleppo.

    Adding to the Syrian Army's anti-Daesh effort is Russia's air campaign, which was launched on September 30, when more than fifty Russian warplanes, including the Su-24M, the Su-25 and the Su-34, commenced precision airstrikes on Daesh  targets in Syria at the behest of President Bashar Assad.

    On Monday, for example, the Syrian Army, assisted by Russian warplanes, was on a roll in northern Latakia. There it took two strategic highways under control, destroying scores of terrorists and forcing militants out of key border areas with Turkey.

    Additionally, the Syrian Army pushed terrorists out of Height 713 and al-Koz mountain after Russian warplanes launched a series of airstrikes against militant targets in the area.
