    Syria's government forces have been repulsing numerous attacks of the Jaish al-Fatah militant group in Aleppo's northern suburbs.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — Syria's government forces have been repulsing numerous attacks of the Jaish al-Fatah militant group outlawed in Russia in Aleppo's northern suburbs for two days in a row, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    An officer of the Syrian army told Sputnik that the terrorists were bearing significant losses.

    According to the Syrian military, the army has managed to regain control over part of the territory seized by the terrorists. Foreign militants, including citizens of Turkey, Arab countries and other states, have been taking part in the offensive that started on Wednesday.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces fighting numerous opposition factions and Islamic extremist groups.
