Nusra Front Slaughters Dozens of Regime Troops in Aleppo

Nusra-linked social media accounts claim the Al-Qaeda-backed group ambushed pro-regime soldiers in the country's northern province

Dozens of Syrian army troops were killed south of Aleppo in an ambush by Nusra Front forces, Twitter accounts linked to the Islamist rebel group reported.

Meanwhile, three civilians killed and tens more were wounded in Russian air strikes on the Islamic State-held town of al-Bab near Aleppo, activists said.

Rebels of the southern countryside of Aleppo have successfully resisted the three-week-long offensive, seizing control of Tal al-Mahrouqat near the villages of Khan Touman and Khasleh.

The offensive has mainly concentrated on clearing rebel-held areas south of Aleppo rather than the city itself, which is home to 2 million people – divided between government forces to the west and rebels in the east, Reuters reported.
