The Syrian army repelled the militants from 29 villages near Aleppo
Syrian military managed to repel the militants of the “Islamic state” (IG; banned in Russia) for almost 30 settlements near Aleppo.
“The Syrian army expanded its zone of control North-East of Aleppo, to establish control over 29 villages and villages after fierce clashes with a group DAISH (the Arabic name of the IG, — “Kommersant”)”, — quotes “RIA Novosti” an excerpt from the message of the military. It does not specify for what time it happened.
Previously, came reports about a major event on the battlefield — the Syrian army take Palmyra.
“Palmyra liberated by Syrian army from the terrorists,” — said at the talks in Geneva the head of delegation of the Syrian government, permanent representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari.
Recall, a new round of inter-Syrian negotiations in Geneva have not led to direct contacts between the representatives of the official Damascus and the three largest factions of the opposition.
Breakthrough was not achieved largely due to the fact that the opposition of the Higher Committee on negotiations, supported by the Gulf countries and Turkey, rejected the proposal of the government delegation for the inclusion in the agenda item on combating terrorism.
