Aleppo, Syria – Syrian rebels attacked Monday a military convoy for the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) in the countryside of Aleppo, military sources reported on Monday.
Speaking to ARA News in Aleppo, Saleh Zein, a field commander in the rebel battalion of ash-Shamiya Front, said that armed opposition fighters prevented an ISIS military convoy from reaching the city of Aleppo.
“The radical group of Daesh (ISIS) was planning to storm opposition-held neighborhoods of Aleppo by bringing large military reinforcement, but our (rebel) forces attacked the convoy before entering the city,” Zein said.
On Monday, ISIS sent several armored vehicles and heavy artillery from its bases in al-Bab city to combat rebel factions in Aleppo.
“Subsequent to the rebels’ attack on the convoy, clashes broke out between our forces and the radical group. We lost six of our fighters during the clashes, but we were able to kill dozens of Daesh militants and prevented them from reaching Aleppo city,” the rebel commander told ARA News.
