At least six insurgents fighting against the Syrian government and one soldier have been killed in clashes in the northern city of Aleppo, Press TV reports.

Seven Syrian soldiers were also injured in clashes that took place near a police station in the city's eastern district of Hanano on Wednesday.

Many insurgents were also killed during clashes with government forces in Aleppo's Maysaloon district. Large amounts of weapons and ammunitions, including Israel-made bombs, were also seized from terrorist groups in the region.

Clashes, however, continue in several other Aleppo districts.

The Syrian army has launched a mop-up operation against foreign-backed insurgents in Aleppo since August 8 and so far, scores of terrorists have been killed in the military operation.

Several Aleppo districts, including insurgents' stronghold of Salahuddin, have also been cleared of terrorist groups since then.

Meanwhile, the army has announced that it has taken full control of the capital’s al-Kadam neighborhood. Syrian troops have also destroyed a weapon warehouse in the Western city of Homs.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the insurgents are foreign nationals. Damascus also says that the insurgents are supported by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.

On September 15, UN-Arab League Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi met with President Bashar al-Assad and other Syrian officials in Damascus. Brahimi stated during the meeting with the Syrian president that the solution to the unrest in Syria “can only come from the Syrian people.”
