The Islamic Front forces killed 50 Syrian regime soldiers when they tried to enter the Handarat region, north of Aleppo, on Sunday, spokesman for the Tawheed Brigade of Islamic Front Salih Anadani told Anadolu Agency.

The spokesperson said they had also injured scores of Syrian regime soldiers.

He said that three soldiers were also captured, including one Iranian and one Afghan national. The attack on the regime was carried out in cooperation with other armed opposition forces, he added.

The fighting between the Islamic Front and Syrian regime forces has been ongoing in the region since last Friday.

Anadani said that after intense fighting, the Islamic Front had regained control of Handarat and El Mellehe.

More than 190,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began early 2011, according to latest UN figures published in August.
