Syrian army liberates strategic areas of military academies in Aleppo
Another stage of the military assault in the areas of higher military institutions began on Sunday night. At the moment, only a part of the artillery school remains under the control of terrorists, Sputnik International reported.
"Air Force school and logistics support college are under our control. It is necessary to clean up the artillery school. This is an important and strategic step for the liberation of the entire city of Aleppo from terrorists," a brigade commander of a militia group.
Syria has been suffering from an armed conflict since March 2011, which, according to the UN, has so far claimed more than 500,000 lives.
Militants from various armed groups are confronting the Syrian government troops. The "Islamic State" (IS), the YPG (Kurdish People's Protection Units) and the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) are the most active terrorist groups in Syria.
