The Syrian Army troops pushed the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board) back from five more regions in Southwestern Aleppo on Saturday in their push towards the key Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Idlib province.
The army men beat the Al-Nusra back from al-Safa, Talil al-Safa, Kafr Kar, Banan and Um Jaran South of the town of al-Safireh, killing a number of terrorists and destroying their equipment.
The army forces are advancing towards Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Idlib from two flanks in the Western direction of the town of Khanasser and al-Safireh in Southwestern Aleppo.
Field sources confirmed earlier today that the army men in the last round of clashes with Al-Nusra captured the villages of al-Atshanah, al-Salehiyeh, Beit al-Hamadat, al-Jufrah, Wadi al-Hob and Tal al-Sabiyeh near the town of al-Safireh.
The sources said that the army has thus far imposed control over 60 villages and towns following its advances in Southwestern Aleppo in the last four days.
The sources said that the army has started fresh operations South of al-Safireh to access the key Abu al-Dhohour airbase, capturing 26 villages.
The sources further said that the terrorist groups have launched more attacks on the army to slow down their rapid advances and prevent them from laying siege on the militants trapped in a large region expanded from Southern and Southwestern Aleppo up to Southeastern Idlib.
