     Syrian armed forces and militia liberated over half of the territory of an air force school in Southern Aleppo, according to a RIA Novosti correspondent.

     ALEPPO (Syria) The Syrian army and local militia regained control of over half of the territory of an air force school in Southern Aleppo, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Wednesday.

     The militants’ resistance has reportedly weakened considerably compared to previous days but the fighting continues.

     Earlier in the day, Syrian army soldiers continued the offensive in the south and southwest of Aleppo near the military academy for artillery and logistics, as well as the air force school. The vanguard managed to free a number of key buildings.

     According to the Syrian military, the liberation of the military schools would narrow the circle around the militants in the eastern suburbs and provide an opportunity to launch an offensive in the area of Ramouse to ensure the security of the southern entrance to Aleppo, which is currently blocked by terrorist fire.
