Syrian security forces have retaken control over more areas in the country's northern city of Aleppo, as neighborhoods are being cleared of insurgents.

A Syrian Army official in Aleppo said on Thursday that after two days of a major operation in the city's Sayf al-Dawla neighborhood, Army troops managed to inflict heavy losses on the insurgents fighting the Syrian government, and forced many of the anti-government elements to surrender.

The official added that there were foreign nationals among the insurgents.

Security forces also engaged the insurgents in Aleppo's other neighborhoods, including al-Sukkari and al-Hellok.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley, an author and historian from Washington, to further discuss the issue.
