In addition, the sources pointed out that three high-ranking terrorist leaders, identified as Ahmad al-Hayedk, Salah al-Mahmud and Shamseddin Abu Mahmud, were killed in the latest clashes, and more than 15 armored vehicles were destroyed.

Meanwhile, Syrian and Russian aviation bombed camps of those groups near the military academies of Aleppo and in the towns of Kafr Hamra, Khan al Assal, Marata, Khan Tuman, Tel Bazo and Um Kare.

On Sunday and Monday, heavy clashes continued between Syrian troops and the terrorists in the military academy of Al-Hikma, in the southwest, near the area of Ramouse and Zone 1070, they said. According to the latest reports from site, the terrorists lost another supply route and are trying to reinforce their position in Al-Layramoun and other districts on the outskirts of the city.
