Aleppo, SANA – Locals in Ein al-Arab continue to defend their city against ISIS terrorists, establishing control over vital areas and inflicting heavy losses in lives and equipment upon the terrorists.
Local sources said that the city’s defenders are advancing in the southeastern and northern parts of the city after establishing control over most of it following violent clashes with ISIS that left dozens of terrorists dead, most of them of non-Syrian nationalities.
The sources said that the locals cleared al-Sina’a and al-Rifiye schools and several official buildings and establishments from terrorists, and are continuing to dismantle the mines which the terrorists had planted.
Locals had carried out on Sunday a special operation against ISIS terrorists that lasted throughout the night and until the early hours of Monday morning, killing several terrorists, seizing their weapons and ammo, and destroying a car bomb before it could be detonated, in addition establishing control over a number of sites.
Also on Monday morning, ISIS terrorists attempted to attack the southeastern neighborhoods of the city but were thwarted by the locals.
ISIS had begun their attack on Ein al-Arab 113 days ago, carrying out terrorist suicide bombings in an attempt to control the city, but now the terrorists are only present in small parts of it.
