TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army continued its advances in Baeedin district after taking full control of al-Davvar district, and is now in control of nearly half of Eastern Aleppo.

The army units have taken back 20 square kilometers of the total 45 square kilometers of Eastern Aleppo.

Scores of terrorists were killed and wounded in tough battle with the Syrian army soldiers.

Meantime, the Syrian army and popular forces strengthened their military positions in newly captured districts in the Eastern part of the city of Aleppo on Monday.

The army units and their allies fortified their military positions in Haydariyah and al-Sakhor districts in Eastern Aleppo city.

Meantime, the Hezbollah resistance forces are chasing the terrorists who are trying to flee the region.

On Sunday, the terrorists sustained heavy defeat in different fronts in Northeastern districts of Aleppo and they had to withdraw from Haydariyah, Bustan al-Pasha, al-Hallak, Ayn al-Tal and al-Sheikh Khezr regions.

Meantime, Syria's media reported that the resistance forces managed to take full control of al-Sakhor region after they had seized back over 95 percent of the region on Sunday.

On Sunday, it was reported that the countdown has started for the collapse of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in entire Eastern Aleppo as they are losing ground to invading army and popular forces in several neighborhoods and were forced to evacuate Bustan al-Pasha district Northeast of the city after brief clashes in the evening.

The Syrian army and Hezbollah forces, who captured Hanano quarter on Saturday and Jabal Badrou, al-Ard al-Hamra, al-Saroukh districts on Sunday, continued their military operations and managed to push back a large number of terrorists from more vital bastions in the Eastern parts of the city.

According to some Arab media outlets, militants of Fateh Halab (Aleppo Conqueror) factions have abandoned Bustan Al-Pasha as well as Haydariyah and Baeedin districts after huge defeats of their comrades on Sunday.

Following massive unprecedented gains inside Aleppo city over the weekend, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued its operations around the remaining insurgent pocket.

As the Tiger Forces settled in on the northern flank of Aleppo International Highway, other SAA factions engaged in heavy firefights and artillery exchanges with insurgents at the Sheikh Lufti district in the southeastern part of the city.

Here, the Desert Hawks Brigade, Republican Guard, Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade) and Liwa al-Baqir (Syrian paramilitary) targeted positions held by Fatah Halab rebel groups. Subsequently, the joint pro-government forces captured about a dozen buildings in the Sheikh Lufti area on Monday after the recent capture of the nearby 'police hill'.

Additionally, Syrian government troops found themselves heavily occupied with facilitating the departure of over 10,000 civilians from formerly rebel-held neighbourhoods of Aleppo in what can only be described as a mass exodus. In at least one instance, Islamist rebels opened fire on fleeing civilians to prevent them from leaving.
