Foreign intelligence officers were killed in a Russian cruise missile attack on a terrorist operations centre west of Aleppo
Russian warships off the coast of Syria’s Latakia targeted and destroyed a foreign military operations room in Aleppo killing 30 Israeli and western intelligence officers according to unconfirmed reports.
Along with the Israeli officers, several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed.
The Aleppo operations room was allegedly used to direct terrorist attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.
According to Alalam: “The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Saman mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,” Sputnik quoted military source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday.
The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Saman Mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains, FNA reports.
Earlier in September, the Syrian army units launched a preemptive strike on the terrorists of the so-called Aleppo Operations Room in their gathering centers near Castello road in the Northern areas of Aleppo and Mallah farms, foiling their plots to attack the region’s supply route, a source said.
The source said that the army’s artillery units attacked the terrorists’ gathering centers near Castello and Mallah farms in Zahra Abdo Rabbah, Kafar Hamra and Hurayatyn which killed and wounded dozens of militants.
Also, the Syrian air force attacked the terrorists’ supply route in Northern Aleppo towards Hayyan and Adnan as well as the supply roads in Western Aleppo towards the North and smashed the terrorists’ convoys in al-Aratab, Urom Kobra and Maara al-Artiq which thwarted the terrorists’ plots and forced many of them flee towards the Turkish borders.
Informed media sources disclosed earlier that the Syrian army has continued its advances in the Southern part of Aleppo, and regained control over several strategic areas in the town of Khan Touman.
“A number of key warehouses of Khan Touman are now under the Syrian army’s control,”, FNA reports.
The source noted that the Syrian air force and army’s artillery units also targeted the gathering centers and fortifications of the terrorists in Khan Touman.
