The Syrian army succeeded to lay a full siege on the Daesh-held towns and villages, in the southern countryside of Aleppo province, in northern Syria, a military source said.
The Syrian army and allied forces, have secured the road between the city of Rasafeh, in the southern countryside of Raqqa, in northern Syria, and the town of Athria, in the eastern countryside of the central Hama province, which enabled it to lay a siege on the villages and towns in the southern countryside of Aleppo, the source said.
The source, meanwhile, added that, the Syrian armed forces are bracing to enter the isolated villages in southern Aleppo, adding that, the Daesh militants there, are expected to have fled, ahead of the imposition of a full siege on those areas.
With this progress, the road between Hama and Aleppo has become secure, after being a target for frequent Daesh attacks.
It also ends the Daesh presence in the entire province of Aleppo.
The Syrian army and allied troops wrested control over the eastern part of Aleppo city last Dec and launched a wide-scale offensive in Jan to end the Daesh presence in the southern countryside of Aleppo.
Earlier this month, the army also started an offensive in the western countryside of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Daesh, to achieve the progress in southern Aleppo.--
