Syrian army units active in the northern city of Aleppo found and destroyed a tunnel used by terrorists as an arms depot, Iran's Fars news agency reported on Wednesday.

'The Syrian army troops seized a long supply tunnel of the terrorists in one of the neighborhoods of Aleppo,' Fars News wrote citing military sources on the ground.

'The tunnel could lead the militants toward the Syrian army's positions and concentration centers in Jamiyeh al-Zahra in Dawar al-Maliyeh neighborhood,' the sources added.

On Tuesday the al-Nusra Front and Jund al-Aqsa terrorist groups confirmed the loss of at least 26 of their fighters killed and wounded and a number of their military vehicles destroyed following a series of failed attacks on the government forces' positions in Tal al-Eiss in southern Aleppo.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army, backed by popular forces, restored security to eight newly liberated villages in the south of Aleppo province and was now advancing towards regions still under the terrorists' control.

Syrian military forces also engaged in fierce firefights with the remnants of militants in the areas just liberated inflicting heavy losses and damage on the militants.
