Syria Gov't Repels IS Attack in Aleppo 04/29 10:46

   BEIRUT (AP) -- Syria's military says its troops and allied fighters have 
repelled an attack by the Islamic State group on a government-held area south 
of Aleppo province.

   The Saturday attack took place in Khanaser, southeast Aleppo --- a strategic 
region that links Aleppo with central and western Syria.

   The military media arm says the IS attack was repelled.

   The opposition Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says IS 
fighters launched the attack on military posts in the area, triggering intense 
clashes and leaving many casualties.

   IS-affiliated Aamaq news agency claimed IS fighters killed 30 government 
soldiers in the attack on Um Mayal village east of Khanaser.

   The government wrested control of the strategically-located Khanaser from IS 
last year. Since, IS has lost most of the areas it had controlled in Aleppo 
province.
