The Free Syrian Army (FSA) seized control on Friday of 13 villages in Aleppo's southern and eastern regions, where conflicts are ongoing.
"More than 200 soldiers, including Hezbollah militia were rendered ineffective," Yasir Ahmad,, media responsible of Syrian Revolution General Commission (SRGC) in Aleppo, told AA in an exclusive interview.
Ahmad said that they told the Syrian Red Crescent that they wanted the bodies of deceased soldiers to be taken from the Rashadia and al-Kurbatia villages.
A member of the Assad family, Abdelkarim Makhlouf, also died during the conflicts in the region, Ahmad said. He added that they had reached 8 bodies killed by Assad regime and thrown down a well in Haqla village.
