Syrian army inflicts heavy losses on insurgents in Aleppo
The Syrian army has cleared most neighborhoods in Aleppo of the armed groups over the past several days.
On Saturday, Mohammad Yasir Qarandal, a commander of the terrorists in Aleppo, was also killed in clashes with the army.
In addition, the security forces engaged a group of armed men near the northwestern port city of Latakia late on Friday, killing several terrorists.
On August 18, the Syrian forces arrested a group of insurgents attempting to block main roads in Latakia.
Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil that began in Syria in March 2011.
The Syrian troops destroyed three command centers of the insurgents on the outskirts of the western city of Hama on August 23.
The latest round of clashes in Aleppo comes two days after Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad said in a press conference in Damascus that Syria is ready to cooperate with the new UN-Arab League special representative for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, to end the turmoil in the country.
On August 17, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in a statement that Brahimi, the former UN envoy to Afghanistan and Iraq, will replace Kofi Annan, who announced on August 2 that he will step down as the UN-Arab League envoy for Syria at the end of the month.
