A battlefield source told the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper that the Syrian army in a preemptive military operation on Friday managed to push back the terrorists of Aleppo Operations Room near Castello and al-Mallah Farms in Northern Aleppo.

In relevant developments in the province on Thursday, the Syrian army units launched a preemptive strike on the terrorists near Castello road in the Northern areas of Aleppo foiling their plots to attack the region's supply route.
