Syrian Air Force jets destroyed a major training building used by Daesh militants in the terrorists' de facto capital of Raqqa, Iran's Fars news agency reported, citing informed sources on Sunday.

According to the agency report, over 30 terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured in the aerial attack on the focal point of Daesh-controlled territories in Syria.

Raqqa was captured by Daesh militants in 2013 and has since been the terrorists' de facto capital in Syria.

Last week the Syrian Army, in cooperation with local militia, cut off the terrorists' main supply routes in the northern Aleppo province as part of a major offensive near the Turkish border.

Dozens of militants were killed and many more wounded after the Syrian troops finally captured the Ma'arasta-Masqan road in the north of the province, where earlier the army broke the militants' four-year siege of two towns, sources said.

The terrorist groups operating in the region are fleeing in large numbers as more and more towns and villages are falling into the hands of the advancing government forces.
