29 militants killed in Syria

Damascus, July 10 (IANS) At least 29 militants were killed in battles with the Syrian government forces near a key route in Syria’s Aleppo city, a Human Rights monitor group reported on Sunday.

The Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front militants were killed during a failed overnight attempt to re-open their last remaining supply route, Castello road, that connects rebel-held areas in the northern countryside of Aleppo with rebel-controlled areas in the eastern part of the city, Xinhua news agency quoted the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as saying.

The Syrian army had severed the road on Thursday, following a week-long offensive.

Aleppo, strategically located near the borders with Turkey, is Syria’s largest city and once an economic hub. It has been a focal point of clashes between the Syrian army and the rebels.
