Newscast Media WASHINGTON, D.C.—Syrian Security forces destroyed several vehicles filled with weapons, and  seized a dozen more of the vehicles carrying ammunition and weapons to Aleppo.  According to Press TV, cars were identified in the suburb of Kafar Hamra on Wednesday, and were captured as they tried to enter Aleppo from the North.

On Tuesday, Syrian authorities captured dozens of insurgents near the Souq al-Hal area in the northern province of Aleppo, Syria's state-run SANA news agency reported. Syrian forces also destroyed seven cars equipped with DSHK machine guns and occupied by insurgents in the al-Bab area.

Another key neighborhood of Bab al-Hadid  was also liberated by Assad's forces. This has been confirmed by Iran's Press TV that also has reported the top insurgent leader Wa'el Mohammed al-Majdalawi was killed in Syria's capital, Damascus. According to media reports in the region, Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Chairman Alaeddin Boroujerdi said the atmosphere in Syria was improving.

"The improvement curve in Syria is ascending," he said, and mentioned the 30-country meeting that took place in Tehran yielded positive results. "The proposal put forward by Iran's foreign minister [at the meeting] about a three-month truce is a logical one," Boroujerdi stated, as reported by Press TV. (pop-up)

Meanwhile, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) has confirmed to BBC news it has retreated from Salah al-Din (Salaheddin), a densely packed area of narrow streets on the south-west side of Aleppo, where rebel fighters had been heavily dug in. State media had reported the army was in full control of the district, saying it had inflicted heavy losses on hundreds of "terrorist mercenaries".

"We have staged a tactical withdrawal from Salah al-Din," rebel commander Hossam Abu Mohammed of the Dara al-Shahbaa Brigade in Aleppo told the AFP news agency by phone. "The district is completely empty of rebel fighters. Regime forces are now advancing into Salah al-Din," BBC news reported. (pop-up)  

Syria has been waging war against the rebel gangs for the past 18 months, in a battle the President Bashar Assad believes will determine Syria's destiny.
