    The Syrian army is conducting an offensive on the Daesh terrorist stronghold in the eastern part of Syria's Aleppo province, a military source said Wednesday.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — The source added that armed clashes were continuing in Syria's strategic Khanaser settlement that controls supply routes to the city of Aleppo.

    "The army is advancing to Al Bab — the main Daesh stronghold in the eastern part of Aleppo province. A group of 10 militants was killed and three off-road vehicles with machine guns were destroyed," the source told RIA Novosti.

    Earlier, it was reported that the Syrian army liberated strategically important towns located on the governmental supply line to the city of Allepo from Daesh terrorists. According to the source, 18 army soldiers died during the operation, while several dozen Daesh terrorists were killed.

    The Syrian army is continuing anti-terror offensive, which is supported by the militias allied with Damascus.
