Aleppo, SANA – After securing Aleppo/Damascus international highway and liberating its surrounding areas from terrorism, trucks and vehicles of Aleppo governorate began to remove barricades and barriers which were set up by terrorists on the highway at the western entrance of Aleppo.
SANA reporter said that, as soon as the army units completed securing the international highway after liberating its surrounding areas from Aleppo city passing by Saraqeb , Ma’arat al-Numan in Idleb countryside, the trucks and vehicles started to remove the barricades for the rehabilitation of Aleppo/Damascus international highway at Aleppo western entrance.
A few days ago, trucks and vehicles of Hama and Idleb governorates began the process of rehabilitation of the international highway starting from Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idleb passing by Ma’arat al-Numan and Saraqep cities in preparation for putting the vital international highway into service.
Aleppo/Damascus international highway is considered an economic vital artery that links Aleppo province with other Syrian provinces as it is a fast road for the goods flow, transit trade, transporting passengers among big cities. The highway shortens time, reduces traffic congestion and accidents which repeatedly happen on the current road of Khanaser/Ethreya/Aleppo.
Earlier, Syrian Arab Army units completed securing Aleppo/Damascus international highway passing by Idleb and Hamah after liberating the areas surrounding the road and expelling terrorist organizations from the two sides of the highway.
